Impression: I’d bought some bottles of a few of the Frauendorfer beers last year but I hadn’t seen their Landbier until I found it on tap at the Schwarzer Adler just up the road from the brewery. I’d liked it but not as much as their very tasty Vollbier. I was happy to finally see bottles of it and I got it along with both the Vollbier and Pils so it was easy to compare. The first bottle lost its head quickly but the second one was better. It’s got a nice amber hue and low carbonation. The palate is quite malty and reminds me a bit of an English ale with some hops towards the somewhat dry finish. I’d still have to say the Vollbier is my favorite.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
