Krystal and clean cut, yellow like sunlight, with a weak half finger of head.

The nose of a Keystone Light

Mild everything with a backbone of sweet malts and cut grass.

Light bodied, mild carbonation a little sticky as it warms

Just another lager, not bad, but not gonna have another visit from me

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.

Poors a goloden colour with good head and retention. And lace. Aroma has slight notes of citrics,spices and herbs.Medium to light body, clean palate. Taste is similar to aroma: slight notes of citrus and herbs. A refreshing and easydrinking beer for hot summer days.

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.
