Clean, biscuity malt accent on both the nose and the palate. If you like dortmunders or helles, you’ll really enjoy landbier.

bierkoning (10555) - 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.

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2010
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.

pivnizub (9006) - 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 (8590) - 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).

shrubber85 (7947) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2005
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.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 3, 2002
My beer was not the fleshiest but still had great fruity / flowery aroma that many top ales would be jealous. The head was ugly, look unimpressive. A bit of apple with medium roasted malt with acidic finish. I am sure this would be a decent beer if would be fresher.

jonas (5843) - 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.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2005
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.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 28, 2004
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.
