Die Herzen unserer Brauer schlugen höher, als sie in die tiefen Keller unserer Brauerei hinabstiegen, um durch Verkostung aus den Lagerfässern die Qualität und Reife unseres Bieres zu prüfen. An diemsem traditionellen Ritual, das in der Brauersprache zwickeln genannt wird, hat sich bis heute nichts geändert. Wahrlich einer der schönsten Momente für unsere Brauer, wenn sie beim Zwickeln den vollwürzige Geschmack der natürlichen Inhaltsstoffe probieren dürfen. Mit dem Genuss von Aktien Zwick’l können Sie dieses Erlebnis geschmackvoll anchempfinden.

tanstil (122) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 20, 2014
0,5l bottle as "Original Landbier Zwick’l". A slightly hazy amber beer with a rich white head. No carbonation. Sweet aroma with notes of malts. Also sweet grainy and hoppy flavour.

Icedwarf (291) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Donker geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en licht zoet, met sporen van graan. Redelijk goed bier.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This creamy lager blends toasted, caramelized malts and herbal hops in a balanced, highly drinkable vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the shiny pale amber.
-After a while, malts tend to take over the flavor profile.
-These malts are beautifully developed and not too sweet.
-This may not be memorable, but it is highly efficient and well crafted.

miggle (147) - Fürth, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle: brown color with unstable head. Very weak smell of malt. Taste is quite flat with some bitterness, but missing aroma. One of the most boring frankoniken beers.

Has a nice aroma of caramel and citrus. The color is hazy brown with a white head. The taste is caramel, banana and citrus. The mouthfeel is crisp and oily at the same time.
