Impression: Though I’ve never managed to visit this brewery properly, I have been outside looking in and now have found a full range of their bottled beer. This Landbier was quite impressive looking with a massive rocky head that lasted well into the glass. It was balanced with plenty of malt up front and enough hops to dry it out in the finish. There was an unusual for the style spiciness, almost like a Märzen, but it wasn’t unpleasant and the bitterness picked up as it warmed up.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
One thought on “Friedel Landbier”
I like the name Zentbechhofen — not that I’ve ever been there, but I know the general area.
