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.

mikedR (1153) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Not bad at all. I prefer more of a bock, but this is quite good. Slippery mouthfeel. Malt cereal flavor is slightly roasted. A bit of a kick -- hops?

fdomig (363) - München, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
500ml bottle. Aroma is oats, light yeast, hazelnut. Appearance is light brown with a nice white, fast decreasing foam. Taste is sour and light bitter. A good mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Light dryness. Nice Zwickl.

TimE (3135) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 13, 2014
straw color. Hoppy, funky, light dry, some peppery notes. Really nice. I must of had this in very good condition. Drank at a German pub in Seattle, but can’t remember name.

dnicolaescu (736) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 12, 2014
SWING-TOP 50CL. Look: hazy amber, big off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma: rich malty, grainy and husky, white bread, somehow fruity and juicy. Taste: quite dry and drinkable, rather harsh grains with husk, but with a juicy sweet-and-sour fruit character that makes it quite enjoyable, some light phenolic finish with light astringency.

Not bad, despite the flaws.

massingasetta (216) - München, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
Unfiltriertes Bier oder Zwickl BIer (Kellerbier) ist ein Kunst für sich. Ein naturbelassenes Bier hat andere Qualitäten hinsichtlich der Farbe/optik, und auch Einstieg und Körper sind ander bewertbar. In dieser Kategorie ist das Bier aus Bayreuth ein gutes Exzemplar. Solide und deftig mit guten flaschen Design und Süffigkeit. Viel mehr geht nicht nach oben.

gmonroe10 (241) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark copper with light soapy dimishing off white head. Nose is malt, light citrus and even lighter hops. Flavor is fairly sweet, small bitterness, Light body, medium carbonation.

Frank (2827) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
This pours a copper color w/ a fairly long-lasting head of mixed bubbles. The nose is pleasantly grassy and a little bit of simple malt sweetness brings out some lemon notes. The carbonation here is mild, which lends adds to a feeling of this beer being fairly full bodied but still light on the palate. This finishes on the light side w/ just a mild lingering impression of hops, while a bit of grain-husk astringency implies something like lemon iced tea. Definitely, this is a nice beer--a bit on the sweeter side than I expected but still tasty and refreshing.

bhensonb (10929) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Swingtop bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark copper with a beige head. Mild floral aroma with some light caramel. Med body, almost. Flavor suggests English bitter for a second, then develops a hint of malt sour, then moves on to a rather tasty caramel with not too spicy noble hop. Good drink.

ruigo (1068) - PORTUGAL - MAY 3, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a brownish yellow colour with a off-white head. Aroma is malty, fruity and lightly caramel. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is more bitter than sweet, with a dry finish. Overall, a very drinkable beer.
