Moravius (606) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2014
Vom Faß im Brauerei-Gasthof Höhn, Memmelsdorf. - Orangegelb, trüb; wenig Schaum. - Geruch leicht beißend mit „grünem“ Hopfen und viel Diacetyl. - Antrunk spritzig frisch, mild karamelsüß; etwas fruchtig-herber Hopfen, leicht „grün“ und etwas säuerlich. Gut rezent, etwas dünn im Mund. Im Abgang nicht allzu aromatischer, leicht stechend-scharfer Hopfen. - Trinkbar aber wahrlich kein Genuß, dafür ist es einfach zu unreif.

Jonb5 (395) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Half litre in handled mug at the brewpub in Memmelsdorf. A: Amber in colour, hazy, two finger thick head, moderate retention and lacing. S: Not overly pronounced but a pleasant, grassy (Saaz) hoppy aroma, also some sugarcane. T: Great mix of subtle flavors, including slight Parmesan cheese which I often detect in beers brewed with the Saaz hop, some tangerine and a nice hint of honey which gave it a balancing sweetness. M: Light, crispy and perfectly carbonated. O: Even though its one of many outstanding beers from Oberfranken, this is worth looking for, so quaffable.

harrisoni (14139) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Or whatever the house beer is. I am guessing it’s the most rated beer. Hazy amber thick lasting cream head. Malty worty unfiltered beer that is very interesting and quite delicious. Yeast on aroma. Odd to find a yeast led lager in these parts. Interesting drinkable. But I must get back to Bamberg before the light goes. Hop builds on the finish. Decent

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Draught at Höhn in Autumn 2011 and 2012: Orangish with yellow tint. Creamy, sustained white halo of foam. Clean, airy, toasty, vivid malt aromas with mild pepper, biscuits, and sour fruit yeastiness. Soft carbonation. Firm body. Opens with a robust crackle of toasty Munich and lightly honeyed biscuits along with a mouthful of minerals and a tickle of alcohol. Haylike malt joins perceptible melanoidin character which links up with an attractively hefty and nutty Munich signature. Nice soft florals accompany the composed hop bitterness. Finishes semi-dry with a yeast-bolstered body capped by a tardy expression of fresh bready weightiness and sweetish honeyed biscuit flavors. The most recent batch I tried is fruitier than I recall, and thus is not as quaffable as the cleaner version I enjoyed in 2011. A very straightforward example, but it doesn’t really do anything wrong.

pivnizub (9036) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2012
On tap: Deep golden, hazy, stable creamy off-white head, grassy-hoppy nose with slight malty traces; light to medium bodied, sweet-bitter flavour; traces of vegetables in the drier bitter-sweet finish. Quite weak by franconian standards…

Tim Webb (233) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
On draught at the brewery tap. A difficult beer to rate. In some ways ordinary, in others a classic. Earthy, real-aley, hopping just right, good solid malt base and a fine natural-herbal character. But nothing to make you get up and dance. The Franconian beer dilemma in a single glass.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Malty, light toasted bread, not quite wheaty, but almost. Light spicy and grassy hops, a touch of sweetness, and a quick clean finish. Pretty good.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at the hotel Gasthof-Hohn, Memmlesdorf - 28/04/12. Slightly hazy amber-brown in colour. Malts and yeast are the mainstay of the nose allied to a little earthy veg smell. Flavour is again malt, some fruits come through also, not citrus maybe peachy/apples - but fairly background in this respect. Light bitterness in the mouth and finishes fairly dry. Would revisit this one.

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
On tap in Memmelsdorf, 18/07/2012. Slightly hazy gold in colour and appearance, with a billowy, off-white head. Stone fruit aroma with some sweetness and a touch of grassy hop. Sweetish, malt flavour with some more fruit and gently bitter finish. Good.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Tap at Höhn. Slightly hazy orange body with a rocky cream head. Sweet malty nose, light citrus and yeast. Very inviting. Rustic, sweet then dry taste, has some flavor in common with a grainy Maibock. Citrus is pretty mild but they’re getting a nice pith/rind sort of bitterness out of the noble hops. Medium-full body, yummy. Now this is a Landbier!
