"Mit dem Boltens Landbier haben wir ein Bier gebraut, welches natürlich die besten Zutaten der Landwirtschaft nutzt, aber vor allem, welches einen vollen, aromatischen Biergeschmack hat, der nicht nur aus einer überzogenen Hopfung herrührt, sondern aus der besonderen Malzmischung. Der obergärigen Brauart sind wir selbstverständlich treu geblieben, schon alleine wegen der Bekömmlichkeit, aber auch weil die obergärige Hefe wegen der höheren Gärtemperatur mehr Geschmacksstoffe bildet, insbesondere Geschmacksstoffe mit einer leicht fruchtigen Note. Und weil wir natürlich alles an Geschmack erhalten wollen, was da so entsteht, belassen wir das Boltens Landbier - genau wie früher - so wie es ist, nämlich naturtrüb."

downender (7686) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
From the barrel at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardeners, Lambeth 16/5/08. Murky pale gold in colour with a decent, frothy white head. Aroma of herbs, sour apples and grassy hops. Flavour was slightly bitter, with barnyard yeast, wheat and a bitter, slightly acidic finish. A bit hard to categorise, but drinkable.

Ungstrup (33428) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2008
Bottled. An unclear golden-amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of fruit and some notes of vitamins. The flavor is sweet with strong ntoes of straw and medium notes of malt, leading to a dry bitter finish where the straw note lingers around.

MiP (15028) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle, 4.9%. Citric aroma with OK rough hoppiness. Cloudy orange/grey colour. Big, stable, creamy, tan head. The flavour has a very faint hint of fine hop aroma. Apart from that, the hops are rather rough and uncompromising. OK, but cheap-tasting hops. The yeast gives a nice mouthfeel. Gets a little chunky at the bottom.

bottle, Danke pivnizub! Cloudy pale yellow with a large and creamy head, very persistent. Full-bodied, very pleasant mouthfeel. Hoppy and aromatic, solid malty background. Lovely!
