COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hirter Zwickl has a distinctive natural cloudiness that guarantees that all flavor components are fully preserved. The residual yeast is perfectly integrated into the full-bodied overall character of the beer without ever compromising the delicate yeast aroma on the palate and in the nose.

Brewed from the soft mountain spring water of the Hanslbauer spring and with a low carbonic acid content, the Hirter Zwickl has a particularly rounded, drinkable finish. GMO-free and non-pasteurized, a freshly tapped Hirter Zwickl is a naturally cloudy delicacy! 12.3°

A pale golden unfiltered lager. A complex beer with many aromas and flavours. Exceptionally hoppy and yeasty quickly followed by a light sweetness. This is my kind of brewery!

0,33 hana @ Cafe Einstein Vienna. Sameahko oljenkeltainen. Tuoksussa mallasta ja humalaa, hiukan sitrusta. Maussa vehnää, mallasta, humalaa. Ei huono, sopivan kevyt.

Draught at BBF12. Cloudy yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is malty and yeasty. Medium bitterness, clean enough. Well-balanced.

rozsoma (752) - Győr, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
3rd Wiener Bierfest, Vienna, Austria. Sampled by Kis Salétrom and Szebeni Ászok. SZÁ: Nagyon vártam már a Hirter Zwickl-jét, mert pár évvel ezelőtt volt szerencsém a Pils-ükhöz és maradandó emlékeket hagyott bennem. Ehhez képest ez óriási csalódás: teljesen ízetlen, fogorvos-élményeket hoz elő, itt valami nincs rendben. Nagyon nincs. KS: "Nagyobb a füstje, mint a lángja"

JaKeAFC (857) - ITALY - APR 6, 2012
On tap. Fresh draft beer, yellow slightly hazed with a snow white head. Rather simple and grainy but very good, classic and perfect example of the style. Now can’t remember all details but was smooth, easy to drink, earthy and nice.

An unflitered pale helles, with a light malt flavour. An easy drinking beer.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - MAR 5, 2004
On tap, unfiltered. Light hazy, pale yellow colour, rocky white head. Light hoppy aroma, yeasty. Taste has a lot of grainy, malty flavor, light bitter. Medium body, finish dry. Crisp and refreshing, easy to drink. A good session beer.
