500ml bottle (One Pint Pub) 6 soft milky aroma, gentle perfume hop. 4 cloudy yellow, small head. 6 lovely almond tang to the body, like a good bock would have, but without any of the punch. 4 refreshing palate, quite full and crisp carbonation. Finish lasts for a while. 12 what a lovely zwickel. crisp, full, soft, tangy, a little bit butter.

Bottle looks very simple, but good, the beer in the glass turbid, small head. Starts very moldy and old, a bit sourish. Then more and more malty-floury, mild-hoppy notes. Finish well balanced, a bit yeasty, quite drinkable. Good!

thegreenrooster (3341) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a very sweet malt with some grain and hay. Flavor is a lot weaker. Some grass and malt but very watery and weak. This is not a good beer but i will not kill it to bad as I see the last rating for the beer was from 5/08. I probably got a really old bottle.

pivnizub (9100) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle (donated by joss !): Pale golden, cloudy, bigger, slowly collapsing loose white head; citrousy-worty nose, mixed with traces of yeast and spicy hops; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering spicy-fruity-hoppy finish. A goody.........

MoritzF (8589) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 10, 2008
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, yellow colour with a big but non-persistent foamy white head. Sweet, slightly yeasty and worty malt aroma with notes of citrus and spicy hops. Light-bitter flavour, slim bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderately yeasty, slightly worty malty nose with subtle fruity accents (citrus); dryish, slightly sweet and bitter finish with a light but aromatic hoppy bite. Nice brew by a tiny Suebian brewery (09.04.08).

jonas (5882) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle. Fairly yeasty, dry clayish aroma. Cloudy neon yellow, off-white foam. Strong fruity entrance, citrus fruits, minerallic yeast, herbal and aromatic hops hiding in the background. Fairly carbonated, hence a bit too light mouthfeel. Peachy retronasal.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2006
From a 500 ml. euro brown bottle with a notch freshness date on the back label. Poured an unfiltered cloudy dull golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of spicy floral hops, a grain breadiness and a light lemon. Moderate carbonation and a crisp, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Nice pleasant taste, grainy and sour bready, floral and slight grassy hops that are soft in their bitterness, a sweet lemony emerges towards the end and a dry spicy and malty finish. Easy, smooth drinkability, not a bad Landbier, quite quaffable.

bierkoning (10654) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2006
Swing top bottle. Blonde, cloudy, no specific aroma. Light citric flavor. No clear hop character. Just a refreshing and fairly tasty beer. Surprisingly little character, but I drank this beer with pleasure.
