3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Bottle.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/nuts/seeds, cereal, horse feed), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of tangerine, hint of marijuana.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Weird, such a drastically inconsistent brew! First bottle was excellent. Then smelled it from tap up by the Kreuzberg and it was like dog food and not much else. Then again from tap at the Gasthaus in Hallerndorf, where it was quite nice. And here finally from bottle again, purchased at the Gasthaus...where it’s a bit raw and cereal-like...but ok. So I honestly don’t even know what to rate it...somewhere in the middle of all of it, I suppose. So I guess just keep in mind that this can range from a 2.0 to a 4.0 and everywhere in between.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Quite sweetish, fully bodied and a lot of quafness. Nice malty aroma from start to end. To recommend.

Light milky yellow-golden colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of malt. Taste of mild hops, ripe grains, green nuts, hay and cloves. Easy and nice to drink but just a average beer in the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle at Brauerei Rittmeyer in Hallerndorf. clear rusty orange body, a color found often in vienna and marzen. toasted and burnt red malt and orange pulp hops in the nose. grainy and husky, both in smell and taste. starchy and crunchy malt is redeemed slightly by the juicy orange hops, but it’s still too sweet and husky to be a treat. as it breathes there are more dominant burnt corn kernel and burnt nut smells and flavors. no doubt would be a better experience on draft, fresher.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ez bizony édestestvére a landbiernek, de annál sötétebb színű, kissé zavaros. Illata és íze ennek is igen zöld, gazosan kesernyés, de ebben van egy kis rozskenyeres, pincedohos beütés egy kis karamellával. Ihatóbb, mint a tesó, de ez sem egy nagy szám...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear/opalescent amber body with a creamy medium sized off-white head on its top, which leaves a thin film behind.
Aroma contains distinct toast, mild caramel and dough underpainted by grassy hops.
Sharp and somewhat thin mouthfeel.
Short to medium long, sweetbitter finish escorted by bread-crust and herbs.
Overall not bad, but there are some better brews in this style...

0,5 l fliptop bottle, courtesy of Ogreface, thanks!
Little bit darker and a little bit better than the Landbier, but nothing more. Not my one....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 28.02.2013
Aroma is rather grainy with some hay and hints of toffee. Flavour is rather malty with lots of grainy notes, hints of mint and some hay. Also some unique grain-like element I find hard to describe. Also very malty finish with chocolate and distant herbal notes. A good kellerbier!
