Tasting: Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel

I picked this beer up last week since I wanted to try more lager varieties. I had this during the superbowl, so I didn't take time to photograph the beer in a glass.

Tasting: Chilled to ~50 degrees (f) from a pint glass.

Appearance: 3/3 beautiful deep red/brown color, clear.
Head: 3/3 fluffy, light head that lasts for the whole glass.
Aroma: 3/3 Pleasant toasted malt aroma.
Flavor: 3/3 Rich, slightly sweet toasted malt,.
Mouth feel: 3/3 Medium carbonation, medium body, smooth, aftertaste is a mildly sweet, faintly nutty.
Overall: 3/3 Very pleasant dark lager, a toasted Oktoberfest.
Buzz: 3/3 Mild buzz after 1 glass.

Another Munich-style lager that tastes great. Munich is on the list for a future trip to Europe!
