Ayinger Brewery “Celebrator” Review

Ayinger brauerei celebrator beer review by beer_reviewer

Good Sunday afternoon! We are gonna be looking at another doppelbock today. “Celebrator” clocks in at 6.7% alcohol and comes from the Ayinger Brewery in Germany. I picked up this single from Total Wine & More, but I know Spec’s sells these in 4 packs.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a pilsner glass.

LOOK: Pours with a glorious three finger’s worth of khaki foam that dissipates into two finger’s worth within two minutes. Extremely dark brown in color with a ruby tint. Plenty of bubbles rising along the side of the glass to support that massive head. Lacing is wonderful as it is in abundance and adheres to the sides of the glass.

SMELL: Has strong aromas of caramelized malts that entangle with mild roasted malt, fig, and plum aromas along with a hint of spicy hops.

TASTE: Initial taste is of strong caramelized malt flavors with a hint of alcohol. Mild roasted malt flavors and subtle spicy hop flavors enter immediately after the initial flavors. As all flavors persist in strength, subtle fig and plum flavors complete the 3rd and final act of flavors about 3 seconds after the initial taste.

FEEL: Full-bodied, subtly carbonated, with a thirst quenching finish that sticks to the back of the throat.

NOTE: I love, love, LOVE, how the alcohol was barely detectable. However, as the beer warms, the alcohol becomes more apparent.

OVERALL RATING: 4.34 out of 5.
