ClarkVV (4223) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle, undated, if I remember correctly, drunk Winter 2011.
This one was pretty confusing, as the head and carbonation, while not the fizziest thing I’ve ever seen, still struck me as the filtered/force carbed type. The beer was certainly clear and there was no sediment on the bottom. Hmmmm.....
Light grains in the nose show honey, bits of caramel and a hint of corn and metal. Very light hop profile has some minimally spicy, dusty notes. No alcohol, and despite the corn/metal, it just seems more a typical filtering/staleness issue than any real massive brewing flaws.
The beer was drinkable, in the mouth, with lively carbonation, a stronger-than-average maltiness (honey and creamed wheat) and very low bitterness, though still a touch on the finish. A couple of notes of grain alcohol/glue on the finish, some light metallic notes and obvious oxidation, though the person providing had just brought this back from Germany. Nothing like a filtered zwickl, I always say!

emacgee (4378) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Soft pale straw blonde pour with two fingers of tight white head. Nose is bready with green apple and wet dough. A little insipid and spicy. Light and crisp in the mouth, bready and a little spicy. Zippy bitterness and hop character. Light metallic and wet dough.

jamaty (1250) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Dorada clara, algo turbia. Espuma media. Muy bebible y agradable. Aroma moderado. Igual que el sabor que no destaca especialmente por nada. Refrescante, suave y ligera.

jaghana (4655) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle 50cl, a golden beer with medium head. Nose is grassy with vegetable notes. Aroma is on grassy hops, kind of corn sugar, sweet vegetable body, less complex and boring, light cereals touch, yeast finish with grassy hops.

adamnowek (680) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2015
A fairly run of the mill zwickl. A good amount of bitter but maybe a little bit too much for me. Still pretty easy to throw back.
