3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I think from the bottle. Color was a dirty amber with a big fluffy head. Aroma of spice, bread and yeast. Almost peppery and herbal. Flavor was of sweet malt, bread with a great herbal and peppery finish. Slightly creamy on the palate. Nice finish and after taste. It seems that I like Zwickels more than most.
