Share This Review

Ayinger Celebrator is a Doppelbock brewed by Privatbrauerei Ayinger, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The lager pours a dark brown and is topped by a thick pad of dense tan-colored foam. The head shows modest retention and reduces to a thin ring. A smattering of residue collects on the glass during consumption.

Aroma

The aromatics are sweet with a scent of molasses and raisin.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of brown bread and is quickly followed by a sweetness of dark fruits. Bitterness is expectedly mild but the taste is balanced by hints of noble hops, roast, and spices. A base of brown bread sweetened with molasses, toffee, and nut tie the palate together.

Mouthfeel

The feel is smooth with a medium body and medium-light carbonation. It’s slightly sticky through the middle.

Overall

Ayinger Celebrator smells sugary sweet but its palate offers enough balance with its blend of hops, roast, and spices. The mouthfeel is a little light for the style but otherwise, this lager is a smooth, easy drinker. Prost!
