On tap at Witzgall. from what I can see from my opaque mug, huge creamy head. the aroma is very floral, there is honey, hay and funky grain. Taste is delicously malty for a landbier. Lots of honey and biscuity malts, nicely balanced by floral hops. Dusty feeling, svery smooth and well carbed. Very flavorfull without being cloying, this is a masterpiece. Very different than the authentic earthy lagerbiers but equally good.

Bottle from the one and only TAR, the man. Poured a clear golden-yellow color with a moderate, frothy white head that faded to a thin, bubbly layer that left spots of lacing. A sweet honey breadiness, cereal, light grain, a sweet, fruity tangerine/peachiness, and a soft grassiness paired with a light herbal character make up a beautiful, delicate aroma. Smooth, moderately dry entry with a soft honey sweetness leads into a bready, lightly grainy middle with a moderate spiciness that follows into the dry, grassy finish where it’s paired with a moderately sweet, lush tangerine fruitiness and a light touch of earthy spiciness. Smooth, full mouthfeel without feeling heavy on the palate. It’s dry and biting on the finish that begs you to drink more...literally. I could drink as much of this as you could put in front of me. I wish it wasn’t so easy to drink, because it disappeared from my glass much quicker than I would have liked. I have a bit of a chubby.

On tap at the brewery guest house. Great glowing slightly hazy gold pour with rich white head, thick as hell foam. Aroma is intensely grainy, super fresh grassy notes, floral notes, fresh bread, can’t take my nose out of the mug, this is divine. Taste is so rich, yet light, grassy hoppy flavor, intense bready grain, doughy yeasty notes. Palate screams for big gulps, I finished my first half liter in minutes. Outrageously good, easily one of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Landbier 5.2% unfiltriertes gut gehopftes Bier aus dem kleinen Dorf Schlammersdorf. Das Brauerei wurde in 1811 etabliert. Eines von den besten Landbier wie hergestellt ist. Süffiges Frischbier mit viel Mineralen und Geschmack.

Big thanks to Harrisoni for this one - Cheers Ian! Hazy gold beer with a big white head. Palate is minerally crisp. Slight brett and floral hops. Medium noble hop bitterness. Underneath is nice creamy malt, semi dry. Finishes semi dry with that typical light German caraway - nuttyness. Bitter floral aftertaste.
