3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 500mL Bottle. Pours a crisp, clean color of pale lemon with a medium sized frothy white head. Light aromas of sourdough bread and plucked celery leaf. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, with a pleasant whole wheat breadiness backed by a touch of malt. Almost a hint of green prune toward the final smack. Not bad overall; it kind of reminds me of a pilsner flavored with a touch of sweeter, dark fruits.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500 ml bottle: $1.99 at Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA) Kind of grainy, lightly bready and only a little sweet, but also mildly hoppy and bitter, so I’m liking the balance here. Light-medium bodied, but because of the hops presence, it’s somewhat clean and lightly crisp. Carbonation is light to medium as well. The nose is pretty much just straight grain and lightly bready. Pale yellow in color, but somewhat hazy. It’s interesting that the beer is hazy because there is no evidence of yeast in the bottle. My first Landbier, and this seems to be an enjoyable, though not mind-blowing style.

thanks to Saarlander for sending me this bottle. my first in this style. pours a pale slightly golden yellow with a decent foamy head. very mild flavor, which after all of the stouts, IPA’s and BW’s I’ve been drinking lately, this seemed kind of boring. good to try a new style though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden/yellow with an average-sized white head. Non-descript aromas were moderately malted. Lightly bittersweet throughout with healthy wheat-beer character, ending lightly dry and bitter. Problem is in the finish with annoying metallic presence. Ruined the whole thing.

its ok for me, but was expecting more Quite mild, had a bit of malt flavor, but nothing was too strong in this beer, lackluster.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2006 Bottle. A mild barnyard/hay aroma. Medium yellow - lightly cloudy with large quick collapsing head. High acidity initially with a light sour malt finish. Just doesn’t have the typical flavor of a Landbier.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very slightly hazy, pale gold color with a thin cap of a white head, this has a sweet, doughy aroma with hints of grass and a light floral hopping. Lightly carbonated, this is medium-bodied, yet somewhat sticky to drink. The flavor is pretty much that of sweet malts with a slight hop bitterness on the tongue in the finish.
