Interesting beer and style. Definite malt aroma with a slight hint of spice. Full flavor and heavier than expected with average carbonation. Color was a reddish brown with a decent head. Malty up front that lingers and develops into a spiciness reminiscent of rye. Slight hop bitterness at the end with some dryness. I liked the uniqueness but not an everyday lager.

Very nice starting head. It settles slowly and in a rocky fashion, leaving some chunky lace on the glass. The liquid is crystal clear but dark, like a light brown ale. Crystal malt is the initial nose; there’s also some definitive hop presence, but it’s mellow and in the background. True to the Vienna style, if a little on the darker side. (On my second pour, I detected a light earthiness.) Much dryer than the smell would indicate. A little astringent. Darker malt (maybe chocolate along with a high-kilned crystal). The finish is short with a little bitter hop spice. Again it matches the profile, but a little on the dark side. For a lager, this is a richer styled beer. To me, that’s a great mouthfeel. Another beer to seek out from the series...

jgb9348 (4707) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Nice slightly chunky amber and copper coloured body with a very thin, off-white head and a ruby and peach tint. Aroma of apricots, apples, pears, metal, malt and a bit of rubbing alcohol. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic note up front with a very thin malt note, some lighter sugars and a definite earthiness. Aftertaste shows more of the same with only a hint of light grassy hops the only thing different than the metallic malt and the thin alcohol flavour. Overall, not such a great beer at all, and I’m not sure what people liked about this one, but I’m not a fan at all and would recommend others to not buy this one at all. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Ramsey Liqours in Ramsey, New Jersey on 22-February-2013 for US$4.59 sampled at home in Washington on 14-April-2013.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Floral, herbal, and spicy hop aromas with light caramel underpinnings. Deep amber with a small head. Balanced with a spicy hop finish. Medium bodied and a little flat with a well rounded better finish and a smooth mouthfeel.

tbopslt (346) - New York, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours a clear amber, head almost nonexistent, no lacing to speak of. Malt aroma. Taste is smooth to start, slightly bitter finish but rather enjoyable.

shrubber85 (7554) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Toffee malt and green hay aroma. Copper with small head. Lightly sweet caramel malt and hay flavor. Light but overall a nice Landbier.

bytemesis (3094) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white creamy head that laces well. Aroma is caramel, malt, spice. Taste is quite sweet with caramel, notes of chocolate, a mild anise note coming in late. Mildly bitter finish. Quite complex for its ABV, and a nice brew.

Originally reviewed: 10/11/10. 22oz bottle picked up at a grocery in Charlotte when I was in town a couple weeks ago. Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a clear amber brown color with a thick 3-finger off-white head on top. Decent retention; left some sticky lace behind. Scents of caramelized malts, toasted grains, and sweet coffee. Nice. Good crisp clean feel. Refreshingly wet. But a bit heavy for the style on the finish. Slightly filling. Great flavors of toffee, fresh dark bread, balanced out with a mild hop bitterness. Slight spice noted, but it’s tame and in the background. I liked this beer a lot! Great drinkability. 22oz was not a match for me. I want more.

jhamp9 (1036) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Poured dark amber with a thin head and some decent lacing. Aroma was bready with some sweetness. Taste was bread, caramel, and a little bitterness. Not strong on flavor.
