3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought the Wiesener Altfränkisches Landbier on Biershop-Bayern’s site.
At least today’s beer is a family business, according to their site.
It’s 5.6%, yellow-gold in color, unfiltered and "süffig," (meaning "drinkable", as in "goes down well" - one of the best complements I get when I ask Germans to try my homebrew) and that’s all they say on their page to describe their beer.
The aroma is full-on Pilsner malts, very enticing, almost bready. The taste is quite like it’s aroma, Pilsner malts to the forefront though a little bitter, too. It’s not a thin beer but also not overly thick. With all the malt flavor, it’s still has quite a lot of bittering hops in the back as well as front. Obviously, I detect very little aroma hops and mostly bittering hops, for being labeled a "drinkable" beer, I find it almost a tad too bitter, especially as it warms up. I had to get some Gelbwurst and Butterkäse
Overall, a good, very good beer, an above average beer, but, though I’m a hop head, I find the use of bittering hops a tad overdone. I have 8 more bottles of this stuff waiting for me and I think I’ll try more salty foods when I drink this again. Nonetheless, the bitterness is starting to grow on me and I’m starting to enjoy it.

Bottle from Bier-Hannes Getränkeabholmarkt, Frankfurt, bb 26.01.12
Hazy blond color; generous head, high carbonation. This is a delicate Helles, with mild malt aroma, quite nice and dry malt flavor, light honey touch, and respectable bitterness. Pleasant, fresh and with humble elegance.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with huge stable frothy white head. Decent slightly sweet caramel malt aroma, a cautious hop note. Taste is (not too sweet) caramel malt, somewhat monotonous until a bitter hop note flashes up to the very end. Not bad in taste, but anaemic in the characteristic of all flavours.
