3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clowdy golden with rich white head leaving lacing. Aroma is a bit weak, malty, yeasty, fruity and hoppy. Flavor, oops not what I was expecting of a pilsner, fullbodied sweet, yeasty, malty, fruity citric and hoppy - acidy crispy mouthfeel. Really great. Acidy sweet and crisp palate. Finishes with very nice bitter tart hoppy aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught at the Biergarten of the brewery) Hazy, pale golden colour with a big and persistent foamy white head. Slightly sweet and yeasty spicy malt aroma with shy notes of citrus and flowery hops. Light bitter flavour with a rounded malty sweetness, soft biscuity and subtle fruity malty taste; sweet malt-accented finish with a light hops character. Süffig and pleasant (05.VIII.09).

2011-10-19, bottle from Bier-Hannes Getränkeabholmarkt, bb 12.11 (December 2011), 7-4-6-3-14=34
Hazy blond color, with medium sized head, and apparently low carbonation. It has a nice aroma of malt, with some biscuity crispness. Dry mouthfeel; the malt flavor is not too bad but somehow anonymous, with a papery side; the bitterness is strong; the flavor is less elegant than the aroma.
Pleasant, probably one of the few interesting German beers available in bottles.

2003-01-14, draught at the brauhaus, as Zwickel Pils, 6-5-7-4-14=36
Cloudy blond beer, generous creamy head. Nice hop aroma, less hoppy/herbal than the other beers from the same brewery. Same impression for the taste, not too much dry, strong final, not enough hop character.
