3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle looks like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Start mild, fine yeasty-malty, fruity hints of berries. Mild finish, well balanced. A good one!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ein klassischer Zwickel, der so ist, wie er sein sollte. Grasig, erdig, trocken und dazu noch süffig. Keine verrückten Aromen, doch eine solide und sehr zu genießende Leistung.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy light amber colour with low head and medium body. Nose of barley and straw. Taste of mild, light unfresh hops, hay, berries, honey melon and straw. Hints of honey and caramel. Quite nice Zwickl - quaffable and enjoyable- yet little bit dusty and average. Solid.

500 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of yeast, cinnamon, green apples and some bread. Flavour is rather mild with yeast, grassy hops, hay, grains and some mild spiciness. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Easy-going.

Bouteille: Pale golden, hazy, small and stable and lacy white head, grainy-dusty nose with a barnyardy touch; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite light bodied and pretty soft; short tart bitter-grainy finish. Not exciting, just a pleasant GDR thirst-quencher…
