4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Complex. Malty. Very pleasant smoked flavour. Creamy texture. Long slightly bitter finish. What a perfectly balanced German brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Roasted chestnut colour, with a loose, tan head. This has a smoked taste, which fades into a watery bitterness. It also definitely has a tangy, metallic crispness. This beer seems to have more in common with a Vienna or Oktoberfest, than with the only Keller bier I have tried, and is fizzier than the latter. It is definitely an unusual one.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 RERATE: Becoming more and more impressed with the quality, sophistication and versatility of this beer. An impeccable balance and great flavors. Enjoyable on its own or with food. Bumping up my rating on this. Should be a top 50 if you ask me. Old rating: This one surprised me. Just a great find. Light toasted nose, rich amber color, low tight head. Roasted malt body with a very distinct metallic texture and crisp edges. Nearly a smoke beer. Lingering hop bitter. This would go great with a pizza or cheese plate.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2004 Great sound ! Kind of sulphury nose, malt too. Nice amber color, fizzy head and also fizzy carbonation. Smoked and roasted taste, with hoppy intervalls. Great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes like a dunkel to me, as mads mentions, never had a landbier before, so it may be similiar in style to a dunkel, i don't know. This was nice pleasant, and nice to drink. Nutty, caramelly, with some dry, lightly bitter, lightly herbal hops, subtle, but good.

Malty and caramelly. Really good. A little smoked and very complex. This is not a Landbier style it is a dunkel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2003 Frothy head. Just a slight hoparoma. Sweetish, malty taste with orange and just a hint of smokiness. Re-rate: amber color. Malty aroma with tropical fruit, caramel and chichorei. Slight bitter finish. I have lowered the rating somewhat.

Easy to drink, like a pilsener. Description says it to be a Dunkel, but as i drank from the bottle i couldn’t get that right.
