Enjoying a half liter in their Biergarten in Aying across from their hotel where I’m staying for the night. So nice to just walk back after a couple beers. This is one that I didn’t even know they brewed. I was lucky to catch it on their daily specials menu. The trend with Aying is that they take traditional styles and somehow represent their true form. This is as good as an Export gets. Super fresh, properly sweet, and a strong yet smooth and slightly funky finish. All the way through it’s divine.

Enjoyed in the Schalander (warmup snug-like room) after the brewery tour. Hay-like spring beer.

Pretty good for a lager types beer, the lack of filtering helped

A rock solid snowfall of dense head over ever-so-slightly hazy gold; lots of f flowers, light bread yeast + a squeeze of lemon on the nose; fresh country white loaf flesh that hints at white sugar at points, a slight tang of bread dough starter, a hint of tin, then shifting hop notes of citrus, apricot, coriander and hay; light, smooth, round.

A month in the bottle, and that makes all the difference.
The malts are fresh-out-of-the-oven light, the hops are some of the most nuanced I've ever had from Noble German (my guess is Hallertauer Mittelfruh), and the body is so feathery it's barely there.
Slides down sip after sip. I had a Staropramen earlier; it looks like Mickey's Widemouth next to this. Embodies why people love lager, and they don't even know it.

If this is what drinking landsbier is like fresh on tap in Germany, book my flights.

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2013. Pale golden colour, large white head. Fresh herbal, floral and grassy aroma, also notes reminiscent of weissbier-yeast / cloves. The flavour is also fresh and refreshing, medium sweet, with herbal notes. A beer I can easily associate with spring. *Also sampled on tap (keg) at St. Urho's Pub, Helsinki, Easter 2019.

L-The foam head dissapears after a few seconds leaving a bright yellow liquid with a ring of froth.

S-powerful floral smell, a touch of sulphur.

T and F - Malt, yeast and hops all come through real tasty, some mineral content that adds volume but is in no way cloying or salty. Very tasty and refreshing. A great beer from a great brewery.

Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with some head that dissipates quickly into a frothy ring. Lots of bubbles rising in the glass. If it was poured into a wine glass I might think it was a white wine with extra head. Anyway, aroma is very nice. Its a German hell but it has all these nice subtly floral and fruit and spice notes. Very approachable. Mouth feel is relatively smooth and flavor is a super clean and balanced pale lager with extra floral notes. Some stone fruit in there too. Nothing bready about it so Im not sure how people are tasting bready in this. Its a very nice spring beer.

The colour is pale yellow, the liquid clear. The two-finger head is white and compact; it sinks quickly to a thin lid leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is smooth with distinct notes of fresh white bread. Some herbs and a touch of sulphur that I guess comes from the yeast. Sweet floral notes in the background.

The taste is smooth and highly balanced with fresh French loaf, buttercups and other fresh flowers, just a hint of herbal bitterness and just a slight hint of butter. Light to medium body. Some clean alcohol in the aftertaste as well as some sulphur and gunpowder. Buttercups and other flowers in the finish.

The carbonation is light, the many small bubbles smooth and long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

Reading the review, one could get the impression that this beer is all over the place. But not at all, all flavours are rather subtle and extremely balanced.

Pours a fairly clear light amber with some floaties and a soft, thick crown of foam.

Smell is clean, bready and floral with a hint of yeast and a bit of herb to it.

Taste is bready and yeasty, very clean and balanced with grassy, floral bitterness. Very refreshing and easy to drink, yet not boring.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific spring lager, clean and refreshing.

50cl on tap. The pub does not take good care of its taps, so this review is allowing for lack of freshness and slight "dirty" bitterness.

Look is hazy, light yellow. Much like a witbier, which is surprising for the style. Maybe the reason the pub also serves the beer from a hefeweizen glass. Head is negligible but could also be poor pouring.

Nose is a slight bit of honey on top of raw grain. I would not call it bready, the aroma is too coarse.

Taste is watery but ending with a medium bitterness. Not much malt, but there is a slight tartness which I guess was the intention. Or I hope so. Yeasty notes. Overall I feel like I am sipping a technical failure / lager that has been poured from the vat while the process was still unfinished. I like kellerbier, zwickel etc, but this one is just too raw and crude.
