Pours darker brown than its Kellerbier brother, but overall flavor and aroma are the same...weak. Some bitterness on the palate, but overall flavor is not impressive, no particular notes stand out. Mouthfeel is watery....

Served in 12oz tulip. Poured a clean, clear, translucent dark brown color, with some reddish coloring, and 1/2 inch of off-white head that had moderate retention and very good lacing.

The aroma was predominately nice grainy malts, with some gentle hops in the background. There was also a noticeable caramel scent, which I didn't really expect, and I don't think goes well with overall olfactory profile. The beer was a bit bland at first across the tongue, then the caramel came on in the middle. The grains took a moment, but finally showed up all across the tongue. There was a nice little hop tang at the back. There was also a bit of a flavor that I'm having a hard time describing, kind of a funk, but more of a general "off" taste.

The body was light, smooth a bit thin, and had just a slightly sticky finish. Drinkability was good, but that off flavor, and the sticky finish kind of put me off a bit. Overall, a nice enough beer, one that I suspect would be better closer to the source. Still, probably worth a shot if you're in the mood for something lighter.

A clear brown red beer, an off-white head, little lacing, and small curtains.

Smelling of butter, boiled vegetables and syrup.

Tasting of sweet brown bread, brown syrup, oranges.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, soft texture with a medium body.

A plain but nice German dark lager.

Half litre flip top bottle, dark red, cloudy, almost looks like coke. Big head that goes quickly. It also smells a bit like coke. Has a dark chocolate like bitterness, smokey aftertaste. Fairly smooth mouthfull. With dark beers you don't tend to want too many, this is no execption, a bit heavy.

From tap.

Got a decent, stable white head, with a dark brown color.

Smells of biscuity malts, wheat and slightly funky yeast.

Tastes of bready, slightly bakers chocolate infused malts with a hint of honey and toffee. A distinct earthy, slightly bready maltiness acts as the foundation for the beer, which got a grainy, semi dry counterpart to it. Finishes with a recognizable metallic aspect, due to the high carbonation, with a whiff of noble hops and rustic bread.

0.5 l. bottle, bought on a recent short trip to Germany.

Dark red brown, good carbonation. Nice beige fluffy head.
Smell and taste are fresh and roasted malts, bready, with a hint of dark fruits. Grassy hops.
Reviewing this again in august 2012, I find this brew has improved a lot (or mine is a better sample now). It's very crisp mouthfeel, and the taste delivers more of the spicyness it promises on the label.
This beer was a bit bland to me, but now it's well drinkable, especially on a thirsty day.
It has improved from my 3.1 rating earlier.

Nut brown that goes chestnut in light and steady rimming creamy sandstone head.
Red currant and fig, sour roast, and dark toast on a faint nose.
Banana bread, fresh apples, and kola nut then mild grassy hops. Buttered brown soda toast and bubble gum yeast as it warms.
Coffee hard candy finish (bitter roast, sweet cream) then tingly linger that lasts.
Light, crisp, slight chew. Creamier as it warms.

Labeled at 5.3%

Shows how meaningless the "landbier" tag is - this is just a Munich dunkel.

Lighter than expected, in both body and flavor profile. The right flavors, but only when it was room temp did it get doughy enough to be beyond decent, and by then I'd kinda lost interest.
