Soapy head over thin (somewhat watery) lager. It did look good, in a "classic beer" sense... if there is such a thing. Whatever it was alright, suprisingly ? similar to their double bock if my fucked up memory serves me right. Malty is the word here, with the only real good point being the palate. Ehh, prob. would not buy again... not even worth $3.5.

Aus der Flasche getrunken. Leicht trübes Braunamber mit viel stabilem Schaum. Nach Urgroßvater-Art, so schmeckt es auch. Recht malzig.

kraddel (9329) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2017
Pours clear, dark rubybrown. Small white head, medium low stability, no lacing. Smell is typical german, cleanness, mild bitter touch ( noble hops ) mild caramel. Taste is sharp, tad bitter, caramel, grainy , toasty, some minor white bread. Lingering caramel. Medium body, with medium high carbo.

Bottle. Clear amber but little head. Aroma not inviting: soy sauce, barnyard, nuts. Good taste if a little sweetness. Medium body.

KeefOz (1951) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2017
BB 20.04.18. Poured a crystal clear dark coppery-amber with a two- to three-finger off-white dense foamy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation high, lively and fine to medium. Aroma is slightly sweet of malty caramel. Taste of slightly sweet caramel malt with a hint of metal. Light body. Smooth with a slightly sweet short finish. Not much to it.

suurjuust (3839) - ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2017
500ml bottle. Sweet and malty all the way, quaffable, not exactly complicated. Nutty notes with earth in the background in the finish. Some minerals.

500ml bottle drunk at the brewery Cloudy gold with white head. Light malt wheat barley bread caramel notes.

martpez (373) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Dark malty beer. On the sweet side but still a nice sharpness coming through. ends on a mild sweet finish. Decent.

Piepenhenrich (1285) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
A decent brew. Bit hard to classify, but whatever, amber, focus on malty sweet notes. Enjoyable.

ALLOVATE (3087) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2017
Into a Landbier glass at just on cool. Mahogany hued copper body and bright as bright. Highly effervescent raising up to a plume of tight off-white foam that lifts a good inch out the glass. Grainy, cereal-like and musty malt nose with hints of roasted peanuts, almond meal, and umami in the form of sautéed mushrooms and tomato paste. On the palate it has an initial, rich sweetness of juicy, toasted and crystal malts. Creamy and soft helped by that continual pillow of foam. Quite light in body but well rounded with plenty of nuances to keep it interesting. Roasted nuts, wood and the umami of the nose mixes with peppery and earthy hops and a little rusty tannins. Dusty and musty length just a continuation of the palate. I virtually skolled this back it went down with such ease. Meaty and chunky, cereal-like malts with a mild mineral liquor edge. Delicate hopping gives it wonderful harmony and balance. Delicious. A wonderful Landbier. Just wish I had a few more bottles on hand!!! (50cL, BB 20/04/18, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
