COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein uriges Dunkel mit Brautradition, das auch vielen Gästen der Region ans Herz gewachsen ist. Vollmundig, würzig, extraktreich - ein Landbier im besten Sinn!

574deadzone (1023) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Pours a clear, deep amber brown with a buoyant beige head of foam that leaves a thick lace. Nose involves raisin and prune, sourdough bread, light citrus, fig and plum, a suggestion of light hop spice and some cocoa. Quite sweet and fairly bitter. Medium to full bodied, softer, silky, with a lengthy lager yeast finish. A malt forward brew, somewhat reminiscent of cinnamon raisin bread. Pretty impressive and enjoyable.

tmongoose (1254) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle shared, poured medium to dark brown with red tints in the light. Light mocha color head. The aroma is sweet malts with caramel . Totally delicious. For the non hop lovers this has a great malty flavor followed by the caramel sensation. Very low carbonation. Great example of style.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle. Murky prune-brown body, thin beige head. Nose of toffee, prune, and raisin toast. Body of layered breads and toast, raisin, and prune, also some fig or tobacco leaf and light rubbery phenolic notes. Light and yeasty.

onceblind (4011) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Clear amber with a medium foamy light-beige head. Nose smells a bit like earthy toffee and a hint of raw maple. Flavor is like the nose, kinda earthy sweet with notes of toffee and maple spread accross a toasted english muffin. Perhaps a little note of Cracker Barrel applebutter as well. Tasty!

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 9, 2013
Mahogony to copper body, glowing and with a stable light bubbly big head. Very good looking. Moderate aroma, as the style describes, with roasted malts, young cheesey yeast, freshly toasted brown bread and a hint of herbal hops. Excellent mouth feel, foaming rich in your mouth yet very drinkable. Never sugary or too full, yet with a rich taste (especially for the style). Pleasnat bitterness. Much, much better than expected and one of the best Landbier/Zickels that I have had for sure. Drinkable yet flavourful. Also peaired excellently with my cheese lunch. (50 cl bottle from Wasana’s Getränken Oase)

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear chestnut with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is corn flakey malt, earthy nuttuness, roasty. Tastes corn flakey, nutty, earthy, with notes of brown sugar, caramel, and toffee.

RichardW (1498) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Red berries and sweet malt aroma, with a hint of yeast. Bread and cereal palate, which is well flavoured, leading to a long sweet finish. This is even better than I hoped it would be, really impressed, one of the best non-weisse German beers I’ve had for a while.

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
500mL bottle, sent from mwgroove23 (thanks Mike), pours a dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of toasted hazelnuts, caramel, and quite a prominent character of figs / dates. Flavour is very similar, with notes of figs / dates, caramel and toasted hazelnuts. Despite a very malty, slightly sweet flavour profile, the body is rather bready and dry. Easily drinkable stuff, with a great balance. Great stuff.

Bottle. German brown bread type barley malt aroma. Chestnut with a creamy moderate beige head light lacing. Lightly smoky caramel malt flavor. LIght body, soft carbonation. Very easy drinking.

solidfunk (3854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2013
A little better than the Zwickl for me. Has less candied malt, a little more salty and buttery as well. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Crisp finish. Average carbonation with oily texture. Bottle.
