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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold color, slightly greenish tint. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet. A light to medium bodied landbier. Malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of breadiness. Hops are crisp, slightly spicy and a touch floral. Nicely balanced. A little sweet and could have used a touch more carbonation, but still a nice tasting, light and crisp beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Possible bad beer - the nose is very sour, but the flavor is full of rye, toast, grain and egg rolls. Overall not highly enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cool yellow colour with no head at all. Lots of bubbles but the carbonation isnt so noticable in the palate. Malts in the nose and taste, kind of subtle or bland.
