On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, and dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.

this is a standout for me, one of the best examples of the style i have ever had, wonderful from the tap down at jakes brew bar in littleton. its deep red, pushing brown in color, with a nice frothy and airy tan head, looks great in the glass. awesome nose of old world german lager yeast, toasted multi-grain bread, a little caramel, a sprinkle of cocoa powder, and the dusty german malt i like so much in this kind of style. all the same in the taste, a little banana and pear fruitiness to it, oddly light for its color, delicate and nuanced, complex even, especially for the style. less sweet than others, more yeast flavor, deeply toasted on the grain, maybe a shade richer than others, but incredible drinkable with a rather light body, surging carbonation, and a pleasant lingering german grain flavor on the tongue after the swallow. honey roasted almonds come to mind, buttered toast, raisin, its awesome. feels healthy to drink this even. a lot of the german stuff doesnt get enough love, and i would put this near the top of the list. one of the best dunkels i have had in awhile.

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.

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.

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.

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.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC.. A fine brew. Cool & refreshing. Slight caramel on the hoppiness. Malty fragrance. Everything in it's place & at a manageable 5.3 ABV, this fits right in with those long football 'n beer sessions. Can handle defense vs the hot wings or offense vs the less than guac. GO WHOMEVER!

500 ml swingtop bottle, as "Bayreuther Aktien Landbier Fränkisch Dunkel", bought at Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5.3%. Dark brown colour, big to moderate off-white to beige head. Nice aroma of malts, fresh bread and fruity and floral hops. The flavour is quite fruity and refreshing for a dunkel, the malts are there, but the beer is not too sweet. Low bitterness, but scores high on drinkability.
