Brown 500ml bottle best before the end of this month, so 12 days life left when poured into my lovely Wolnzacher Brauhaus glass tankard.

It looked fantastic, a bright amber body as clean as any beer on earth, on top an off-white head of quality.

The aroma was of earthy malts with hints of caramel and sweet molasses.

The taste an impeccable blend of all things good about German beers: the brew is obviously infused with the best ingrediants available and lovingly produced to a high standard.

Peppery aftertaste, earthy and filling, I had some rough brown bread and some mildly smoked ham with the last few drops of the beer and it suited the food beautifully.

Very impressed indeed.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass. This beer has been aged by just over 5 years since bottling.

Pours a deep brown colour with a quickly fading white head.

Smells of not much, a bit of malts.

Tastes malty, very malty with a little hops to add bitterness. Other than that very plain tasting.

Overall quite good, I wouldn't have it again.

500ml slim brown bottle, BB 10/08, served lightly chilled in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: looking like a Märzen bier, with an elegant bright reddish amber hue, coming with a well-lasting layer of creamy off-white froth on top of abundant streams of fine carbonation.
S: a good level of prune-ish sourness (likely due to prolonged lager-ing of the unfiltered product), and caramelised sugary malt dominates the aroma, backed by apple-ly fruits, doughy notes, and a touch of dust like most lager-bier.
T: a soothing flavour of lightly infused black-tea-ish bitterness precedes a loose-textured swallow of apple-ly fruits and floral hops... turning slightly more bitter in the aftertaste, with plenty of mildly-flavoured herbal hops to linger as well as the prune-ish sour-sweet fruits.
M&D: the carbonation comes so soothing and not imposing at all, plus the slightly sour and length bitter palate, this Landbier proves a very easy-to-drink example of the style.
