Harpoon Pott’s Landbier (100 Barrel Series #32)

22 oz bottle, gold foil with the usual 100 Barrel series presentation. Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Strange one this.
I think if you had given me this in a blind taste taste I would have sworn it was Yeungling! Now, you can take that any way that you like. I don’t dislike Yeungling, but as we all know it’s hardly a bastion of high quality beer so…
Pour is a pretty clear, mid-brown affair with a disappointingly poorly retained head and not much If any ) lace.
Nose and tastes produce a slightly yeasty, 100% non-offensive, light caramel malt and hop note which is pretty muted and reserved all around. Medium body. Attractive ABV to me, but lacks a lot of flavor to go with that particular subtlety.
The non-offensive nature of the beer means that there are no off-flavors as such and that the beer is pleasant enough to drink, but to be honest it’s a touch bland. Definite Germanic character from the malts, but the beer lacks dept or defining moments.
