I was looking to add something a bit more unusual to my last round of purchases and decided to make this a last-minute addition. The price was right and I was pretty happy with the last beer I randomly picked up from this brewery.
Beer Name: Landbier
Brewery: Distelhäuser Brauerei (Tauber Franconia, Germany)
Description: Described on the brewery website (thank you Google translate) as sweet and gentle darker beer with caramel notes. The bottle had a best before date of 10/31/2017 and a cost of $3 for the bottle.
Appearance: It had a translucent, coppery body topped off by a thin light beige layer of foam.
Smell: Light malt sweetness.
Taste: As promised by the smell sweet light malt leads the way, followed by a biscuity, bready middle. The finish featured a rather pronounced yeast presence and a moderate-plus grapefruit rind bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slightly plus amount of carbonation.
Hype: Probably none at all. My last beer from this brewery was a pleasant surprise so I figured I might as well try out another.
Overall: I wasn’t a fan of this one and found the finish particularly off-putting. I grabbed it at random and it didn’t work out. Might be a bit more discerning next time but I was feeling adventurous. Moving along.
