Bottle--hmmmmmm, a beer that just kinda sits around and doesn’t do much for me. Dark amber color with a nice head that reduces and stays with the drink. Not much aroma that I can notice. The taste was nutty with some carmamel, some bread and malts made appearance, almost tried to be a British bitter, but not. So, so. Produce place 5.99

Aroma is nutty and spicy, with a little caramel. Taste starts out sweet, with some hop bitterness coming in for balance. A really good beer from an underrated brewery.

Pours a crystal clear light brown with a good two finger head the dissipates to a cap on top. Smells of bready malt mixed with some caramel melanoids, a spicy floral aroma from the hops and some light sweet fruits. Taste follows the aroma fairly well. Medium level of carbonation, sweet sticky mouthfeel, medium body. I enjoyed this beer. Smooth easy to drink sessionable lager.

22oz bottle, unknown date but a number of months old. However, it has been stored at a constant 38F since arriving at the store so that should help preserve some freshness. Served at around 45F.

Pours clear copper/amber with a two finger off-white light beige head that leaves some walls of lacing and holds a wispy cap.

Aroma is grains, cereal, bread, some grassy and earthy hops. As it warms some light fruit such as apples and a more toasty character develop. Moderate to good strength, getting better as it warms.

Flavor is bread, grains, some caramel malt, good spiciness, decent grassy hop and citrus zest bitterness on the finish. Zero alcohol detected.

Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied, a bit oily, medium carbonation.

My first Landbier and despite not being all that fresh, is still quite enjoyable and I wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to try another in the style down the road. Also serves as a good example as to what refrigeration can do to help preserve the lifespan of what should normally be a fairly fragile beer.

Thanks to acjohnst for this bottle. Served in a wine glass. Pours a moderate brown with a single-finger white head and a good dose of streaky lacing and a full cap. The nose brings forward plenty of earthy hops, which are followed up by a slight woody character. Under all of this is a bready base. The taste is more bready, but still has quite a few of those earthy components. The beer is a bit plain, but certainly well made. The earthy component is a nice addition, though it doesn’t have quite the maltiness that I’m normally looking for in a Vienna. Props again to Harpoon for continuing this series, which--along with Troegs’ Scratch--is one I like forward to trying new beers from. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-29-2010

Cavie (3807) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pot from Potto. Pours a clear light orange color with a white foamy head. Aroma is very grainy and seawater. Salty notes. Grainy. Flavor is light and dry with some bread and spice. Strange because it has a distinctive flavor and yet not at all. Well, here we are.

Fratto (2626) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottle from the Pioneer Majestic. Light brown pour with a big white head. Aroma is light grain, kinda spicy, and weird. Taste is a little chocolate, roasted, and the same weirdness.

22oz Bottle. Poured a dark amber color with a white head. Aroma was malty, hoppy. Flavor was sweet bready malts. A solid, beer that was refreshing and worth checking out.

Caramel, clean and refreshing. Hops in the aftertaste. Improves flavor by increased temperatures.
