COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Blairgus (3075) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2015
15 feb 2015, tap. In a ceramic glass so I have no idea what it looks like. Nose is lightly soapy, floral, sweet grainy malt. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Toasty malt, lightly smoky or even faintly peaty or earthy, sweet malt, tastes mildly of cold, unsweetened sum tea. Nice enough. A bit of dark malt flavor in a thin, light beer.

blackisle (1097) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Swing-top bottle 50cl. (from gourmeo24.com). Clear medium amber, large frothy off-white head, mostly disappearing, good lacing; aroma sweet malty, barley bread, basement, grassy notes; taste mild, medium sweet, slightly bitter, bready; light to medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste starts soft sweetbitter, more light bitterness in the finish; ok, nice light session beer.

Vandenberq (38) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Dunkler, fester und stabiler Anflug: gebeiztes Bauholz. Man möchte weiter in gut ausgebaute Untergeschosse, aber dann? Stroh zauselt an den Seiten, lupft unterm Geländer hervor – drangepappt, wiewohl mit amtlicher Strenge! Dazwischen drängt sich Saures? Nein, nicht ganz. Angesäuertes aber. Bringt man den Sud kinetisch in Wallung, erzeugt man eine Art Gischt (die nicht so schön ist). Darin ist sich Vieles uneinig. Ja, nee. Zur Flasche: Hauptschriftzug aufdringlich vertikal. Künstlich unscharfe Typo. Dann aber: kursivierte Schreibschrift in Gold. Die Rückseite versucht sich daran, die Erzählung vom sog. Zwickeln zu verbreiten (Braumeister steigen zu Verkostungszwecken in den Keller „hinab“) – na gut. Dann aber stört der Apostroph umso mehr.

TheFoamhead (163) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2015
The taste is also some kind of ’perfumed’. It’s brewed accordingly to the Reinheitsgebot - so I don’t know where this particular character comes from. The beer is smooth with hints of spices (that are not in…) and accompanied by a dry and dull bitterness. The whole is not homogenous and I didn’t like it. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this is simply not good. Awfully perfumed character.

Amber colour, frothy white head leaving white lacing. Nose is sour, malty and grainy. Body is rather light, texture thin and carbon medium. Taste is sweet. Palate evokes mainly bonbons, yeast, bread, fruits. B@Berlin

YantarCoast (408) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 31, 2014

Gurthnar (2802) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. Aroma yeasty, basement, true to style. Clear amber colour, stable head. Taste is quite well balanced, has the style defined basementy yeastiness, moderate bitterness, light toasted malt. Quite easily drinkable, satisfying.

Dark reddish brown pour huge head. Aroma slight acidic, big malt - some of it roasty some of it caramel. Tastes big caramel malt flavor. Slight tang mild wheaty character. some creaminess to palate. A bit too sweet and caramelly could use more beany keller goodness.
