It's color was a quite average light yellow, and no head to talk about --except for a bubbly foam that disappeared really fast. No lacing either.
Smell was malty, some back bitterness.
Taste was really balanced, faint though.
Mouthfeel has a tiny bitter finish, sort of buttery though.
Drinkability for me is low, 'cause this beer is quite light. Won't buy it again.

0.5 l. of lager, comes in a swingcap bottle, bought during a short trip to Germany.
Looks great at first sight: a nice white head on a golden beer. Too bad there's hardly any carbonation: i'd like to see some more bubbles.
Smell and taste are very musty, grassy, but dominantly malt.
The finish is quick, the alcohol is easy.
Drink this one cold: the lack of carbonation makes the drinking of this lager a bit disappointing, otherwise.

This beer is called Landbier and I was very anxious to try it. I expected a barnhouse beer, but instead it was more like a pilsner.
It pours a nice golden color with a steady carbonation and a lot of glass sticking cream. The head was thick and wooly.
Smell was not very exciting, just a lager beer, with some sulphur and grainy malt smells. Some amber malt which reminds me of vanilla.
Taste was also very lager-ish, a light bitter and a good malt base, which left a husky taste. The difference with a real pilsner is that this is slightly sweet and there are some vanilla notes. Body is medium.
I expected more of this beer which claims to be a Landbier, but tastes more like a tweaked lager.

Poured a huge, fluffy, bright-white head that faded slowly leaving scattered patches of lace. Transparent, glowing, golden beer holds a few streams of bubbles. Herbal and floral hops in the aroma along with a bit of faintly sweet pale malt. Herbal and grassy hop flavor combines with a light sweetness from the malts to create a hop tea flavor. It is accompanied by a mild bitterness that develops quite early on and pulls through to the finish. Moderately light body combines. A bit of fine carbonation props up an almost watery mouthfeel. An easy drinking biergarten brew.

500ML bottle poured into my Zirndorfer seidel
A - Pale golden lagerish blonde, soapy thin ricky white head that disappates very quickly to leave a crown. Lacing is minimal
S- Lots of grain and some vanilla up front. A musty grassy smell fills the nose also.
T - Very musty again, lots of grain. Some nice hop bitterness.
M - Medium carbonation, but almost feels stale on the tongue.
D - Probably the worst looking lager from Germany i have ever seen. A lot more flavour than Carling/Stella/Bud/Miller, but not flavours i associate with Landbier. Zirndorfer beats this easily.
Will drink it, but i know there is much better out there.

Pours light golden and effervescent with a thin foamy, mostly maintained white head. Aroma of malty grain, toasted malt, cracker crispy. Taste is sweet, malty, chewy, with undertones of bready lager yeast. Mouthfeel is between medium / full bodied with lively carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

I bought this beer months ago when i was in Germany a stored it in my beerfridge. Today was the day to open this one. We all know that the Germans brew a good beer. This one is no exeption.
Poured in my Struise glass the beer looks good. A clear yellow fluid with a very nice white and bubbly head. Too bad there is not much cabonation.
Smell is OK, a bit of citron from the hops. Good and very drinkable for a landbier. I will enjoy every drop of this half liter.

A: Pours pale golden with a large white lovely head that rather quickly sets into decent lacings.
S: Grassy clean malts with only little sweetness. Bitter hops in the back. Some citric notes as well.
T: Bready smooth malt, some sweetness. A bit fruity and also bitter.
M: Aftertaste is medium long and a bit sour. Body is medium and smooth, while carbonation is on the milder side.
O: A well crafted Dortmunder.

.5L, Germany. Best by 5/11.
Pale yellow and nondescript. Good head and lacing, though.
Aroma is grainy, sweet and buttery-yeasty.
Flavor is very similar to the aroma. Little to no hop flavor, and extremely mild in terms of bitterness. Metallic character, especially on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit abrasive, but the carbonation was at least creamy and medium-high, helping to lift the otherwise below-average flavors off the palate.
Just not a very good beer here. But, you never know what you're going to get with something labeled "Landbier," as it's not really a strict style. Give me the Mönchshof Kellerbier over this any day.

The latest entry in the "Jennifer buys too many interesting-looking beers at the grocery stores in Germany" project.
A: Clear, golden yellow with a tiny, wimpy head that disappears almost instantly. No carbonation to speak of. Underwhelming.
S: Hoppy, nutty smell, with underlying fresh grains. Smells a little bit like a field.
T: Tastes like... a hopped up pilsner. Very hoppy character, with lots of initial bite followed by a very grainy, bready taste. Pretty light, but well balanced. I expected slightly more substance, but this is pleasing nonetheless.
M: Creamy and smooth, but disappointingly lacking in carbonation.
D: Easy to drink due to its lightness, but not really something I would want to drink a lot of. The weird, pilsner-on-steroids taste is offputting, as I expected more from something claiming to be a landbier.
