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.

Pint bottle with nifty fliptop. Poured a pale yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of mellon rind, honey, and dough. Flavor is lightly sweet throughout with some honey and wheat. The flavors are good, but they’re quite weak. Light bodied, agreeable texture, lively carbonation.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2006
Impressions from a makeshift Canadian keller:
-A thin skin of foam veils the clear, deep golden.
-Creamy plantanes and feeble straw make up an attractive aroma.
-Banana esters and milky supplements are well-integrated to the dry hay.
-A soft, pillowy body even carries some caramel the sweeten the deal.
-The subtle, supporting hop bitterness, doesn’t detract from the fact that this one tastes like, strangely enough, half a weizen.

Bottle; no date.

Taster at Binny’s, Orland Park. Interesting, but not distinguishable from any regular beer. Pale lager color.Taste has a pronounced sharpness and a slight fruity overtone that shows some ale yeast and hard water at work, though. I’ll have to get a whole bottle and give it a fuller appreciation.

Kellerbier is one of my favorite styles and when I come across one I don’t pass up the chance to try it. This one was bready and malty the way that I like it.

Dorqui (2148) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 12, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Compact and friable head; good persistence and adhesion. Yellow pale color, much limpid and with a good fizz. Fresh, flowery and enough alcoholic scent. Rather prickly taste with light features of weiss bier. Light notes of wine cellar, must and withered grape. Balanced and stinging end, agreeable but without marvel.

Perhaps because it came all the way from Austria.. I detect a small amount of the skunk =( Otherwise, nicely balanced between malty sweetness and some hop flavor which i can’t quite identify, plus a sort of metallic flavor. I wouldn’t get it again, but mostly I got it for the swing-top bottle ;)

Little light wheaty aroma. Not much hops at all but easy to drink and not too malty. Not complex, with a slightly sweet finish.

Pale yellow with minimal carbonation under a sudsy white that leaves a huge web of lace. Aroma finds sharp herbal hops over lightly soured lagering yeasts and grain. Malts are thick and add a honey-sweet balance before the hops kick in, all held together with hearty cereal grains. Vastly similar but quite a step up from an all-malt Premium Lager... a fine transitional to get folks turned on to better beer.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Pale golden, lingering head. Fresh, but light saazy aroma, faint sweet malty notes. Medium-light bodied, moderately sweet maltiness, touch watery with some minerally notes late (bordering on metallic) Malts seems to get chewier, and more straw like (good thing) Pleasant, but moderate clean bitterness. This is very delicate, yet very satisfying. This is the kind of stuff I could drink by the mass.

A light yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flavor is sweet with notes of both hops, yeast, and honey. But the body is thin. I find it boring.
