.5L, Germany. Best by 5/11.

Pale yellow and nondescript. Good head and lacing, though.

Aroma is grainy, sweet and buttery-yeasty.

Flavor is very similar to the aroma. Little to no hop flavor, and extremely mild in terms of bitterness. Metallic character, especially on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit abrasive, but the carbonation was at least creamy and medium-high, helping to lift the otherwise below-average flavors off the palate.

Just not a very good beer here. But, you never know what you're going to get with something labeled "Landbier," as it's not really a strict style. Give me the Mönchshof Kellerbier over this any day.

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.

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.

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.

Clear golden, surprising for the style. Thin creamy head with lazy carbonation. Aroma is sweet malt, hay, grass. Taste is malt and bread. Very easy to drink, and thirst quenching. Would like to drink this on a hot summer’s day.

It's color was a quite average light yellow, and no head to talk about --except for a bubbly foam that disappeared really fast. No lacing either.

Smell was malty, some back bitterness.

Taste was really balanced, faint though.

Mouthfeel has a tiny bitter finish, sort of buttery though.

Drinkability for me is low, 'cause this beer is quite light. Won't buy it again.

¡Salud!

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.
