From bottle, thanks Martin. Pours hazy dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of bread, floral, light malty, light honey notes. Taste is floral, bitter finish, light honey sweetness, light bread, fresh hay. Hoppy and fresh, lovely.

MrOrla (2125) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle @ the from brewery. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus bready malts, quite herbal, light touch of caramel. Taste is rather sweet, with loads of bready malts, light citrus and quite fruity. Good stuff

davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 Bottle. Pour is clear gold with a frothy head, aroma is sweet, citrus, grassy, malty. Taste is sweet, malty, yeasty, earthy, light citric acidity, bitterness towards the finish, great balance. Extremely drinkable, like most beers in this style; the balanced harmony of the subtle nuances make this a very pleasant beer

biir (701) - Berlin, - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle - I got a little confused here as its labeled "Zwickel", but yeah "Landbier" is the same category. Bright, strawy golden color, clear. Taste is incredible for such a "simple" style. Very smooth and creamy body/head. Bready, malty, not too sweet, you wanna drink till you drop. Low carbonation. Some grass notes as well, finish is slightly bitter. Perfect.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 25, 2015
bottle, picked up at the brewery. bright golden with an enthusiastic head; fresh aroma of nutri grain, freshly-mown grass; lightly honeyed sweetness with some assertive, almost peppery hop presence; creeping bitterness, passionfruit vine; extremely drinkable

ekstedt (6420) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2015 Bottle (50 cl) from the brewery. Clear golden, medium to large white head. Bready, hayish aroma, a hint of butter and fudge, grassy and herbal hops. Medium bodied, low to medium bitterness. Semi dry, medium to high lingering bitterness. Lecker.

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
Hazy yellow with sturdy porous foam, redolent of lemons, limes, nutty cereals, and mint. Zesty as all get out. Clean. Sweetish, light honeyed taste mingling harmoniously with sharp, lemon-herbal bitterness. The bitter-leaning balance is so beautifully judged, full of oomph but so drinkable. Fuck man. I dunno. Seems like this is pretty much what it’s all about right here.

maekchu (3351) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 7, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Honey and yeasty, with cookies and some grain. Cloudy honey color with some floaties. Light sweet fruity initial, smooth gentle maltiness, light hopping, and an fun and unusual bit of pepper in the finish. Thin body. Well balanced but fairly complex for the style.

KyotoLefty (9033) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2015
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Bottle at the brewery. Grassy, herbal nose, some lemon, crackery malt, toast. Brilliant cloudy gold color with a fine, pillowy head. Crisp, brilliant body. Great hops, crackery malt, dry, peppery finish. Smooth, with low carbonation. Clean, dry, suffig. Lovely stuff. (Note: I drank a second bottle of this 12 days later back home in Japan and it was nothing like the same beer. Hops were almost gone, and it had generally degraded substantially!)

ippopotamo36 (1583) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 22, 2015
At the Franken Fest in Rome - Italy. On tap. Pours bright yellow, hazy with a medium and tick white cap. Nose: milled malts, chicken stable (I love this smell), bread. Mouth: ouh boy! Dry, frizzy and the closest a beer can come to bread. Leave on an island with a few kegs of this! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
