Landbier ist die beliebte Spezialität von Riegeler – ein Bier, wie es früher oft auf dem Land gebraut und getrunken wurde. Es ist mild gehopft und daher besonders angenehm zu genießen. Seine typische goldene Farbe und der vollmundig-gehaltvolle Geschmack verdankt das Landbier dem hochwertigen Gerstenmalz aus der Region. Riegeler Landbier hat einen Alkoholgehalt von 5,2% und eine Stammwürze von 12,5%.

Review: Bottle of Riegeler Landbier: ABV: 5.4% Brewed according to the Riegeler original recipe since 1834, the beer is still growing strong in Germany today. On pour there is a clear golden colour with a small sized head which looks good, but dies eventually. Small bit of carbonation. Looks ok It has a nice smell, a bit beery and piercing on the nose, but nice all the same. Sweet malts Taste was a bit flat, found no real initial taste, There was an aftertaste alright, very hoppy, bit heavy in the back end Strong enough though, can feel the alcohol Not great to drink, got a chemical taste, bit of lemon, a bit sour. Not one I will be returning to.
