Ayinger Brau Weisse (9/10)

Ayinger  (a German brewery) produces some of my favorite beers.  Their Celebrator double bock is an excellent example of the style.  Ayinger Brau-Weisse is their Bavarian Hefe-Weizen style beer, and is equally good.

Like other Hefe-Weizens, it pours into the glass as a cloudy, pale amber. It produces a thick, coarse white head that dissipates quickly.  As you drink it, it leaves no lacing in the glass. The flavor is mild, with a hint of citrus, and no significant hops presences.  I found it a refreshing beer.

Beer Advocate rates it a 92 out of 100, or "exceptional".

I sampled this at The Winking Lizard on Bethel Road.

ABV: 5.1%
My rating: 9/10
