3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Custom bottle with ’Original Zwickl’ on label. Cloudy orange to amber, frothy head. Average retention. Some laces. The nose is not strong & malty: grains & sunflower oil. A hint of apples. Light to medium body. Sweet grainy taste. Only a hint of bitterness. Fruity notes. Well it’s a Kellerbeer. Still I’ve known better examples of this style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is dusty, musky and kinda doesn’t say much. Flavor is grassy with some apple thrown in. My first kellerbier experience, and i hope i’ll find better ones later.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Only a bit hazy, amber-golden colored, weak white head, almost only lacing. Aroma is of grains, bread dough and green apples. Taste is moderate sweet malt, some caramel and grains, again a bit of green apple, doughy yeasty finish. Low bodied, low on carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from The German Club 190415. The beers starts out clear and then clouds up a bit as it is poured and then up again. Big fluffy head caps off this copper brew that sends out aromas of caramel and malt. While the aroma is quite distinct the flavour flavour is harder to nail down. There’s a nice maltiness followed by a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Good, above average Zwickl. Maybe a little too sweet and low on hops. But definately very drinkable.
