COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bereits in der Nase vermittelt das Landbier eine komplexe, hopfenbetonte Aromatik. Differenziert, ohne lediglich Bittere zu vermitteln, zeigen sich duftig-florale Noten, frische Kräuter und Frühlingswiesenblumen. Feine Fruchtsüße puffert angenehm die vielschichtige Hopfenaromatik. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich sofort eine klare, von eleganten aber bestimmten Hopfennoten geprägte Aromatik, die dem Bier feine Frische verleiht. Cremige Vollmundigkeit erhält das Landbier durch eine durchaus kräftige Malzigkeit, welche jedoch niemals die kräftig-komplexe Hopfenaromatik überdeckt, sondern vielschichtig bereichert. Ebenso wird der cremig-malzige Abgang ständig von feiner Hopfenbittere begleitet. Frankens Alternative für jeden Pilstrinker. 12.8°. 10 EBC.

McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2013
One more Dortmunder/Helles that just tastes like any other of this style..the colour is a medium gold with a very airy head and average body. Nose of sweetish malt. Taste of mild fruits, green apples, low malt, medium hops and old cereals. Refreshing though but quite boring as well.

3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013
November 2012: Draft at Brauerei Rittmayer in Hallendorf as lagerbier.
Filtered gold body under a billowy and soft white head. Bright and hoppy nose, peppery and clean, sweet and thin honey and biscuit-flavored pilsner malt with moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation, good froth. Mild to medium German hop expression seems unmatched for the body and sweetness, and impart a minty greenness and leafiness on top of the already-sweet pale malt. (3.4/5)

May 2013: draft at Rittmayer keller Kreuzberg.
Fine shape. Clean, malty, lightly doughy, very cracker-y. Mild lemon hop aroma. Oily / soapy texture. Crisp finish. (3.5/5)

May 2013: draft at Brauerei Rittmayer Hallerndorf.
Even better. Clean, crisp, more expressive aroma (though probably just the state of my nose at the two times). Smooth and crisp, well-lagered. Still quiet. No soapy finish. (3.8/5)

June 2013: bottle as Plop Landbier.
Kinda flabby, apple-y and butter-y. Limp malt mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Slightly stale. Not a good representation. (3.0/5)

Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold, lightly effervescent, weak white foam head. Nice bready malt aroma, light dough and hay. Light to medium sweet flavor, some very lightly toasted sugars, white bread, dough, faint hay. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly sweet finish, more lightly toasted doughy bread, some hay, white sugar. It’s a very simple lager, but it’s really tasty and I like it.

inbirraveritas (1578) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. Clear yellow golden colour, medium sized white head. Dough yeasty nose. Grainy aroma ruled by hay and dough underpainted by mild grassy hops. Thin, watery texture. Rather short and corny finish escorted by hints of citrusses and herbs. Drinkable, nothing more (maybe just a failed batch)...

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2013
Kinézetre, a halvány sárga szín, közepes méretű, fehér és nem túl kitartó hab, tipikus lagerre utal. Illata zöld füves, csalános, élesztős és nyers tésztás. Íze olyan, mintha egy adag frissen kaszált szénát kútvízbe áztatnánk, tennénk hozzá maláta levet, egy kis élesztőt és némi zöld komlót. Könnyű teste van és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze furcsán, zölden keserű. Nekem ez túl gazos, zöld, nem jött be...

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2013
0,5 l fliptop bottle, courtesy of Ogreface, thanks;-)
Poured clear pale yellow with a small lacing white head. Aroma of straw and hay, some lemon and grass, yeasts. Unmatured character, straw and some malt, grass and water with lively carbonation. Not my lager.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2013
#87 Ein helles Landbier mit echten Pilsqualitäten! Lieblich malzaromatisches und zugleich grasig hofiges Aroma. Im Antrunk schön vollmundig. Die blumige Süße des Malzes weicht schnell einer Hopfenherbe, die im langen Abgang ihren Höhepunkt findet. Untypisches, aber tolles Bier, das manch bayerischen "Pils"-Bieren zeigt, wo der Hammer hängt. Top-Bier!

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle, beers of europe. (Swing top 33cl bottle as ’Plop’) Pours a beautifully sparkling clear pale yellow. Sweet sugary and doughy aroma, nice musty banana flavoured palate, with wheat and a hint of cloves in the finish.

3.2
HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle as Plop Landbier, Handgranate. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. Wonderfull Helles.

2.9
blipp (9295) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft. Pours light gold with a white head. Grainy, light sweetness, very light hoppy notes. Not bad.
