pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2008
Draught, at the brewery: Hazy, deep golden, creamy, stable off-white head; sweetish malty-barnyardy nose with a very distinctive floral hoppiness; solid bitter-sweet flavour, soft MF; lingering bitter-sweet, slightly fruity, but mainly hoppy finish. Very pleasant franconian quality...........

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2008
(swing top bottle, purchased at the brewery) Hazy, bright golden colour with a massive and persistent, slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet, doughy malty aroma with hints of cara-malt, also yeasty fruity with fresh herbal and slightly grassy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, grainy malty, yeasty and slightly fruity taste, light to medium bodied with a pleasant and matured carbonation. Moderately dry, bitter-sweet finish with a herbal, slightly grassy hoppy touch. Well-made Zwickel from a top notch brewery (16.02.08).

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2008
It’s a warm golden beer with a huge, white head. The aroma has sweetness and smooth notes of malt, caramel and fresh made butter. The flavour has a light sweetness with notes of malt, caramel, fruity hops and a hint of fresh made butter (but in the OK and nice way) and it ends dry. It has a fantastic balance and harmony – really well made!

henrikb (1257) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle - Slightly hazy deep golden body, huge white head; Crisp malt sweet nose, butter without being of at all and fine hop notes as well; Huge carbonation on malt bitter and even more hop bitter and dry body, crisp; Dry quite bitter finish from both malt and hop, grassy hop and hay aromas. Very special and quite good too.

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Swing-top by 22.03.12. Nice bready/doughy nose, a little wild with that signature Aufsesser yeast signature/spagh, and light nutty roast. Deep golden body with a rocky beige head. Taste is relatively dry, citrus is subdued, still a nice malt character despite the thinness, also some pretzel. Stroke of acidity and again the hint of wildness. Light-bodied and very repeatable. Seems like the experience with this one varies; mine was a good one.

gunnar (4867) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 27, 2012
Bottle from Frankische Botschaft, Berlin. Pours clear golden with a big frothy white head, slowly disappearing. Aroma of grain, bread and earthy hops. Taste is nice musty malty, with some fungus notes,light bitter end. smooth palate, pretty good and interesting beer.

MartinT (7523) - 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.

On tap at the brewery restaurant.
