2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big bubbled spritely pour but severely lacking head. Aroma of rust, black currants, and cellar dust. Interesting. Taste is of red fruit compote and straw. A bittersweet brew which has character but not very well balanced: initial sweetness is too soon overwhelmed by the hopped bitterness. However the dark fruit taste which is rare to find in a Landbier is excellent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, best by May 7, 2016: Hazed amber. Quick eggshell head. Dirty nose of peanuts, paint, hay, fennel seed, wax and floral hops. Pointy carbonation and flimsy in body. Caramelly and sweet with papery malt and chalky yeast bitterness. Quite unclean, as its considerably dough and fruity. DMS also finds its way into the mix alongside a gummy candy slickness and stewed peach character which exacerbates the excessive level of sugars. Despite the poor attenuation, the center is somehow stark and hollow. Generic papery malt finish shows wet hay, chalk, and faint nuttiness. A very generic and dirty lager. Nein danke!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, with a thin, off-white, head. Very similar to the Vollbier drunk immediately before, with malts to the fore and perhaps a slightly more bitter finish. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to kevnic2008 for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild but not washy, fine malty, more and more spicy. Light sourish background. Finish grasy-spicy, well balanced and quite drinkable. Not bad!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Recht malzig und nüssig mit ein paar süffigen Momenten. Etwas zu dunkel für mich in der Seele - die Malzigkeit wird etwas übertrieben. Dann aber ganz ok.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer pours out in a hazy brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of lots of malt and peat. Taste of roasted malt, roast, leaves, woods, barley, bread and torf. Earthy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle, best by December 2014.
Clear amber with a short off-white head. Malty aroma of toasted grain, burnt biscuit, butter toffee with quiet mineral notes. Faint off-notes of metal and vegetable DMS. Medium body, semi-sweet, medium acid, somewhat bitter in the mouth. Husky roughness in the mouth. Decent but simple.

Bottle by 22.11.12, a swing-top. Stale nose with strong pretzel (from Hetzel!). Taste is saccharine sweet with roast and a light, nutty caramel. Smooth light body is a little unclean. Floral notes in the bg. Dark golden-brown.
