Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Pott’s Landbier, or “country beer,” is a traditional session lager with a decidedly malty backbone made up of a blend of German and North American malts. The smooth malt character is tempered by the German bittering hop Magnum, which lends a clean, crisp balance. This beer is finished with more German hops for a spicy herbal palate and aroma. Fermented with Pott’s proprietary lager yeast – and imbued with over 240 years of German brewing tradition -- this is just the beer to quench your summer thirst.

found this buried in the back of my cellar, totally in the dark and on the back of a musty shelf since it was purchased

eyes...
fluffy head on an easy pour, we're talking four fingers of craggy white foam, the color is really interesting, sort of brown but glowing ruby, excellent clarity with lots of tiny bubbles keeping the head upright and frothy (but not crazy like when you first pour it), nearly flawless looking glass of suds here

nose...
spicy and floral in an earthy way, dirty honey, musty grains, nice euro hop aroma, well balanced over all

taste etc...
mild mannered malt forward, this beer is like a nice neighbor, kind of there but you don't care (but they wont boff your wife when you are at work), nice body, nice enough malt flavor, interesting hop character, very smooth drinking... but medium of the road

verdict?
not bad, not great, a solid beer but nothing special

'Bout to get my Pott's on ...

A- Rich brown color that is clear and can be seen through. Pours a large fluffy head the color of cinnamon sugar. Head stays at about a finger's width, replenished by carbonation streaming from the bottom of my goblet.

S- Very malty, but clean and not musty like some beers you'll get. A light bitterness of hops in the background. Pungent for a lager ...

T- Very tasty. Starts with the sweet malt, but then quickly goes into a fruit flavor profile- cider apples maybe- with a nice hoppiness (just a bit of pine). Finishes with a bit more malt.

M- Fairly light bodied with little strong mouthfeel, but does have a subtle bitterness that stays with you after you swallow.

O- I like it a lot and would recommend you grab one quick if you see it on the store shelves. As my brother said "Blows Sam Adams out of the water." ... though he also just sang "I dance like a German. I swing my hips." Clearly he's been affected by the Pott's family as well.
