   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This prickly Zwickl’s lightly toasted malts and levelled herbal hop bitterness benefit from some orange-y angles that significantly increase drinkability.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam clings to the striking amber.
-The toasted malts are mild, tied to delicate basic grain flavors.
-This was like a more polite version of their Dunkel. Grain bill and hops tasted quite similar.
-Mouthfeel is lean; few residual sugars and fierce carbonation.

Dedollewaitor (14915) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle @ Bamberg. Pours dark hazy golden with a small off white head. Nose is bread, grain, hops and barnyard. Quite rough and bitter flavor with a slightly unpleasant note of vegetables. Medium and smooth palate. Ok.

Kristall-König (2555) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2011
Hopfiger und brotig-muffiger Geruch. Herb im Beginn, gibt sich die Mitte malzig mit wiederum einem brotigen Unterton, der störend wirkt. Dumpf malziger Ausklang. Weniger gut.

Geiserich (3860) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle: Hazy, medium orange color, creamy head. Fresh, light yeasty aroma, notes of citrus and a intensive grain note. Flavor is very grainy, light yeasty a bit fruity and pleasant hopped. Medium bitter, grassy finish. Quite nice and tasty.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle, courtesy of MiP. It pours an almost clear, golden body under a small off-white head. Malty, bready nose with some hoppyness. Malty, bready and hoppy flavor too, giving a fine bitterness to follow you until the very end. Medium body, quite dry. A decent beer, but this one didn’t impress me at all. Strangely enough, a German beer drank in Germany, even at a hotel room, almost always taste better than when bringing it back home. Therefore, maybe I’m a bit unfair with this one, but it just didn’t ring my bell when tasting it. 090821

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 17, 2009
50cl swingtop bottle: A straw blonde, lightly hazy colour with a nice foamy head. The aroma shows an evident malt sweetness, hints of spices and butterscotch and a light grassy hoppiness - somehow odd. Flavour reminds me of unfermented wort, spicy and malt-forward... Whole-grain and again butterscotch. Soft carbonation with a crisp, lighter-medium bitter impression and a light mouthfeel. Like I said, a bit strange but OK.

Bottle, 4.8%. Seems clear golden, but there are some small floating bits in there. Very small white head. Quite bitter, but slightly unpleasant.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of MiP. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Fruity nose with some yeast. Medium body, malt and yeast accents with a fairly dry and hoppy finish. 210809
