Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel

 
RATING
91

Clean, malty caramel emotes from Ayinger’s fluffy, sandy crown while a chorus of earthy hops hum quietly in the nose. Because this beer makes a lengthy journey across the Atlantic to U.S. shelves, some of its fresh hop brightness fades both in the nose and the mouth, but what remains coalesces well. Easy caramel and light, grainy malts play on the palate first, followed by a lovely, floral hop bite that counters the sweetness. With its paltry profile, courtesy of a light body, low alcohol, and dry, clean finish, this brew embodies the style’s approachability.
