Alerich (71) - Dresden, Saxony-Anhalt, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
Traditional or awful overloaded front of the bottle? Pale beer with a nice, but disappearing head. The aroma is wonderful flowery and hoppy. It starts malty, hoppy and full-bodied. Soft carbonation and very smooth palate. Nice, soft bitterness and grassy notes. The finish is moderate dry and a bit sticky. Delicious, thirst-quenching and easy to drink.

Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2009
Ceramic mug. Herbal, slightly spicy hop and lots of minerals. Big minerals, lots of hop. Just delicious kellerbier goodness. Great balance, totally refreshing.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
Gravity. First rating in Years!! This was only called Landbier, same ABV, but with a different label. Very good beer. Very hoppy and quite dry. Some crisp corn taste. Extremely enjoyable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2009
In krug has nice deep golden color. Franken-frische aroma is earthy, woody, with some foot/sock. The palate has nice mineral granularity. The flavors are excellent, with stunning balance, farm fodder, wood, with nice floral hops and mushrooms too. Dry and very good.

goozen (3211) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle 0,5 litr with swingtop: Pale golden looking brew from this Bavarian brewery, its taste like an Bavarian field, just great.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014 Impressions in the shade of the keller:
-An intricate web of citrusy and herbal hoppiness shines through the head ring.
-Hay blades and shining herbal hop flavor and bitterness impeccably unite.
-The creamy, cuddly body is both rich and drinkable, I’m falling in love.
-Earthy hop bitterness surges from the herbaceous character, a veritable garden fable.

On tap at the Rittmayer Keller on the Kreuzberg.

November 2012: Draft at Brauerei Rittmayer in Hallendorf as lagerbier.
Filtered gold body under a billowy and soft white head. Bright and hoppy nose, peppery and clean, sweet and thin honey and biscuit-flavored pilsner malt with moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation, good froth. Mild to medium German hop expression seems unmatched for the body and sweetness, and impart a minty greenness and leafiness on top of the already-sweet pale malt. (3.4/5)

May 2013: draft at Rittmayer keller Kreuzberg.
Fine shape. Clean, malty, lightly doughy, very cracker-y. Mild lemon hop aroma. Oily / soapy texture. Crisp finish. (3.5/5)

May 2013: draft at Brauerei Rittmayer Hallerndorf.
Even better. Clean, crisp, more expressive aroma (though probably just the state of my nose at the two times). Smooth and crisp, well-lagered. Still quiet. No soapy finish. (3.8/5)

June 2013: bottle as Plop Landbier.
Kinda flabby, apple-y and butter-y. Limp malt mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Slightly stale. Not a good representation. (3.0/5)

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 14, 2009
50cl swingtop bottle: A clear blonde pour with a fluffy, resistant white head. Very delicate aroma, grassy and citric noble hops with a faint but yummy tropical fruit (mango, kiwi?) component. Clean and dry flavour - big on the grassy, lightly fruity and floral hops with straightforward, bready malts. A light bitter note and a soft carbonation. Underrated!

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 14, 2012
Una buona helles estremamente bilanciata! Sapore e aroma di malto con qualcosa di erbaceo e un finale luppolato e persistente! Non male.

RichardW (1646) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle, beers of europe. (Swing top 33cl bottle as ’Plop’) Pours a beautifully sparkling clear pale yellow. Sweet sugary and doughy aroma, nice musty banana flavoured palate, with wheat and a hint of cloves in the finish.
