Poured dark amber with a thin head and some decent lacing. Aroma was bready with some sweetness. Taste was bread, caramel, and a little bitterness. Not strong on flavor.

Pours a dark amber/copper color with dark golden orange edges and a frothy two finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Chinks of soapy lacing left behind. Sweet, slightly earthy aroma with hints of earthy grass and floral hops countered by sweet malt noted and some light fruit. Also some biscuit/bread character. Fuller bodied than expected with a nice balance of delicate floral hops and sweet malt. Faintly toasted with hints of bread, biscuit, caramel and toffee. Floral hops add subtle spice but very little bitterness. Hints of apricot add to caramel malt sweetness. Well balanced decent session beer.

Bottle @ home, picked up in Atlanta by my bro. Thanks Jetson! Moderately hazy, amber brown appearance with a creamy, off white head. Grassy hops, straw, sweet, toasty, light caramel malty aroma. Sweet creamy, light caramel malty lager, grassy hoppy flavor. Pretty solid light lager from an american brewer.

I liked this. Clear amber body, small white head, great lacing. Nicely balanced, with great sweet malts and significant hops. Hard to call it a lager with its amber, rather than pale appearance and with its sweet rather than dry flavor profile. I liked it, whatever it really is.

Bomber. Nose has spikes of grass and sharp citrus, otherwise mild malt and doughy yeast. Copper-brown pour with a sudsy tan head. Taste is tart, lightly bittersweet, theres some nice celery here from the hops but the texture seems to be more important than the mild flavor (I dont dare call it bland). Medium body is crisp and clean, reminds somewhat of a cider. Sort of a lagered Bitter with thinner malt profile.

Pours Brownish copper fades to burnt orange to gold rim, off white head, sweet malty smell. Taste is molasses but not as sweet as smell, still very malt driven. Just enough hops to keep some balance, a solid German ale with some faint raisin and German yeast kicking in. As it warms i get more hop flavor with a herbal spiciness that adds a very nice effect. Seems like a dunkel weissen but with a bunch of barley. Good beer for sure.

glennmastrange (2763) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle. Moderate cereal and roasted for the malt, light herbs and earth for the hops and yeast with a hint of cola in the background. Head is average size, frothy off-white with fair but slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, between dry and watery and has a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Not much to this Landbier, but its still above some of the more popular German style beers.
