4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml flip-top bottle. Deep dark amber/brown beer wit a thick creamy tan head. Really great looking pour. Malty aroma with a fresh breadiness and soft whole wheat toasty character. Light rye spiciness. Very rich without a lot of sweetness. Soft but insistent bitterness behind the sweet fresh malts. Lightly minerally with a soft smokiness as well. Very tasty brew. We need more of these bottle-conditioned lagers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle. Clear copper/brown color with a cream colored frothy head. Malty aroma of nutty praline, sweet grain (like the horse feed) and hay. Pure malt flavor with a grassy and citrusy hop backing. Malty Bavarian, and not very exciting.

Dark brown colour. Grassy, hay-ish, stable aroma. Good malty flavour, with grassy notes. This is really in the borderland between Dunkel and Dunkler Bock. Bit of chocolate that lasts long in the finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My first landbier. I must admit I got it because I am only down to 5 styles not rated. Not bad but OVERLY mediocre. Aroma of iced tead. Pour was a dark brown with a nice 1 finger white head with no lacing. Taste was not much of anything. Earth and some malt with a bland aftertaste. Not the most exciting style. Must try more to compare.
