3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a fairly-clear golden color. Surprisingly clear for a zwickel. A good white head with a touch of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some bready grain and a slight touch of hops. Nothing too much there, but the malt presence is quite nice. Flavor falls along the same lines. The breadiness of it is quite nice. Mouthfeel is light with a very crisp, dry finish. Finish is the best part. Quite well done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Publican.
The beer pours a light amber color with a medium sized well retained head.
The aroma is grassy with some light caramel and citrus. The hops are pretty vibrant in the aroma but they seem more citrusy than herbal & the hay is fairly subdued compared to others I’ve tried in this style.
The flavor is lightly bready and dry with lots of bright noble hoppiness, mildly earthy, and it’s got not much in the way of the caramel from the aroma. The level of bitterness in this beer is really very nice in a crisp lager like this.
The carbonation is just right, the beer is not flat by any means but the sharpness of the hops is allowed to "speak for it’s self" amidst a less than lively carbonation.
I’m glad I ordered this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Mirabell Restaurant, Chicago. This is what the waitress recommended when they had no Maibock on tap. They serve this in a large ceramic stein furnished by the brewery for this one, but I was still able to see the head and a hazy reddish amber color. Aroma is of yeast and bread, but there’s a lot more there. Its medium body goes down easily, thanks to the creaminess. Clean, slightly sweet finish. It got better toward the bottom of the stein. Well worth a try.
