The “Landbier” is the premium product of the small Austrian brewery in a valuable handle catch bottle. It is a successful renaissance of a traditional beer-type: malty-aromatic yet light hoppy. Only the finest ingredients are used in its production. Years of experience, constant quality checks and a time consuming brewing method guarantee the beer’s unmistakable flavor. Lagering Time: 66 days in a stone cellar Kapsreiter Landbier is brewed in strict accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law.

Bright lemon citrus biscuit cookie aroma. Golden with bug white head. Sweet and malty flavor nearly unhopped. On the plus side there are no offensive or adjunct flavors, just too sweet for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grain and sweet taste, but pleasant. Flip cap adds nothing but expense. Touch of unexpected cloudiness .

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Austrian lager with thin but stable head and bright golden blonde colour, clearly filtered. Pale malts aroma with some grassy and peppery hops. Malt sweetish taste, clean and honest, smoothly evolving into a dry, hoppy bitterish finish. Nothing exciting but honest and thirst-quenching. Not sure why it is not classified as a Landbier here like the name says, it qualifies for the label, being hoppier than your average Helles, albeit in filtered version.

Bottle poured into a shaker. No "psshhh" when I opened the flip top, not a good sign. Pours a clear dark gold with no head. Aroma of corn and grains with a slight hint of herbal hops. Taste is light sweet. Corn and grains with light herbal hops and a slight hint of caramel. Lig bodied with a thin texture. Flat carbonation and not much of a finish. Meh, I’m hoping this is just a bad bottle.

Bottle 500 ml. from Austria. Had this time a long time ago. The bottle with swingtop looked attractive, but the beer was just OK.

darkseduction (657) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Rotblondes Bier mit feinporiger, sahniger Schaumkrone. Im Antrunk sehr malzig, Röstaromen schön erkennbar. Grasig-hopfiges Tettnanger-Finish. Insgesamt sehr harmonisch und stimmig. Schade, dass die Brauerei wohl geschlossen hat. Richtig gutes Bier!

The head is medium, the body grey. It smells yeasty, barley, watery. The taste is watery, less malty. Boring. 2.3

Pours an otherwise pale straw golden with a pretty thick off-white head that settles fairly quickly to a film and ring, with a thick suspended sediment in the body, and just the tiniest splotches of lace. Nose involves light sweet pale barley malt, a fair doughy yeast, light hop spice, some fruity esters, and some crackery, biscuity malt. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, fair carb action, a bit oily, bready, with a nice clean crisp hoppy bitterness on the end. This is a really cool beer, subtle yes, but well constructed and meeting somewhere between refreshing and sustaining. Great body. Nice.
