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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
