Pours dark copper with thin head. Roasted malts, caramel, biscuit, bread, and yeast on the nose. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, yeast and slight straw. Mouthfeel is creamy and carbonation high. Overall, an easy drinking session beer with some decent character.

Swing-top MHD 11.06.13. Nose is sweaty with pale malt and straw, has a dusty rustic wave under the sweetness. Dark, clear amber body with a flimsy beige head. Some nice chocolate and dark wooden accents under the restrained and flexible malt, a little sweet by Landbier standards but dry compared to what I’ve had in Munich recently. A mild bit of sourness and some melanoidin development in the caramel-heavy, clean medium body. Nice.

I found this quite enjoyable. The nose is extremely bready lime fresh yeast rolls with notes of caramel and a touch of honey. The beer is a medium chesnut brown with a large but fading off white head. The taste is sweet in the bread and caramel range balanced by a floral hop bitterness. The beer is smooth and medium bodied with a medium long sweet finish.
