Bottle, from a supermarket in Lange Strasse, Bamberg. Amber gold, good off white head and moderate condition. Pleasant caramel and hops in the nose with some toffee and spicy peppery notes, sweet and slightly bready in the mouth with toffee nuttiness and gentle hops, bready and lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Quinns. Er, it’s a malty lager what can I say. Straight forward, all the boxes are ticked. Crisp fresh clean and all the other descriptions you would expect... Yup thats it.

Bügelverschlußflasche: Golden coloured, big fluffy, slowly collapsing off-white head; fruity bisquity-grainy and intensive floral hoppy nose; strong bitter, moderate sweet flavour, soft MF; lingering aromatic-hoppy finish, mainly dry, but supported by a light sweetness. A decent, nice Landbier !

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle, bought at the brewery tap) Clear, deep golden colour with a thick and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet malty earthy aroma with herbal hops and a touch of caramel and honey. Moderately sweet flavour; light to medium body and carbonation. Soft malty, slightly toasted, honey-ish fruity taste with balanced herbal hops; medium-dry, slightly bitter finish. Solid Landbier.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Re-rate from bottle: Still quite nice, but certainly a lot less hops than last time. Balanved more towards a bready, honeyish maltyness this time around.

Pretty dark amber, amber full creamy head.
Fresh aromatic and grassy hop nose.
Fruity malt baseline, light bodied with a elegant aromatic hop play and a fine bittterhop finish.
Elegant pale lager, must be the best of this style I have tried to date.

Deep golden color. Light hoparoma. Hoppy flavor with a hint of orange. Slightly grassy and malty. Light hopbitter aftertaste with a hint of glue. Both quality and drinkability combined.

A quite pleasant beer. Refreshing and very "clean". A bit neutral in some aspects like aroma and palate.
