Flasche 50cl. Hellbraunes süffiges Landbier wie es sein soll. Malzig, leichte Bittere im Hintergrund. Leicht hefig im Abgang. Richtig lecker. polaxis (73) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 24, 2013
500ml flip-top bottle. Goldon colour, generous, persistent foamy white head. Malty / bready aroma with a slight touch of herbal and earthy. Hoppy finish. Overall very pleasant but not suited for drinking more than one bottle in a row. rok1024 (1272) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 10, 2013
Almost clear golden pale orange appearance. Decent but fast disappearing head. Aroma and taste are malty and medium hoppy. Overall decent Landbier style. boddhitree (58) - Frankfurt, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013
Bought the Wiesener Altfränkisches Landbier on Biershop-Bayern’s site.
At least today’s beer is a family business, according to their site.
It’s 5.6%, yellow-gold in color, unfiltered and "süffig," (meaning "drinkable", as in "goes down well" - one of the best complements I get when I ask Germans to try my homebrew) and that’s all they say on their page to describe their beer.
The aroma is full-on Pilsner malts, very enticing, almost bready. The taste is quite like it’s aroma, Pilsner malts to the forefront though a little bitter, too. It’s not a thin beer but also not overly thick. With all the malt flavor, it’s still has quite a lot of bittering hops in the back as well as front. Obviously, I detect very little aroma hops and mostly bittering hops, for being labeled a "drinkable" beer, I find it almost a tad too bitter, especially as it warms up. I had to get some Gelbwurst and Butterkäse
Overall, a good, very good beer, an above average beer, but, though I’m a hop head, I find the use of bittering hops a tad overdone. I have 8 more bottles of this stuff waiting for me and I think I’ll try more salty foods when I drink this again. Nonetheless, the bitterness is starting to grow on me and I’m starting to enjoy it. omhper (25753) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
Bottled, from biershop-bayern.de. Hazy golden, majestic, firm head. Fruity and grassy. Sweet, soft malt. Ripe fruits, grass and salt. Mid bitter finish. On the sweet side.

Hazy yellow with moderate carbonation. Sweetish, orange fruit and grassy hop aroma. fiulijn (21292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from Bier-Hannes Getränkeabholmarkt, Frankfurt, bb 26.01.12Idiosynkrasie (7980) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2012
Hazy blond color; generous head, high carbonation. This is a delicate Helles, with mild malt aroma, quite nice and dry malt flavor, light honey touch, and respectable bitterness. Pleasant, fresh and with humble elegance.
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with huge stable frothy white head. Decent slightly sweet caramel malt aroma, a cautious hop note. Taste is (not too sweet) caramel malt, somewhat monotonous until a bitter hop note flashes up to the very end. Not bad in taste, but anaemic in the characteristic of all flavours.

bottle from biershop-bayern. Hazy golden colour, large white head. Malty, quite dry overall, hoppy with a grassy-herbal character. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2012
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready, floral, herbal and mildly earthy. Flavour is floral, bready, herbal and mildly earthy. Also has some slight doughlike/yeasty notes. Refreshing and pleasant. Would be hard to drink many in a row though. Crisp carbonation.
