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)

Style: Dortmunder

ABV: 5.1%

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.
