Das Sechzehnzwölfer (1612er) ist das Bier aus der guten alten Zeit. Ein naturtrübes, vitaminreiches Export Hell, frisch aus den kühlen und dunklen Tiefen des Lagerkellers. So wie zu Urgroßvaters Zeiten die Bierfässer unfiltriert vom Braumeister "gezwickelt” wurden. Nach Beendigung des Brauvorgangs öffnete der Braumeister mit einer Zwickelmünze (heute 2 DM) einen kleinen Hahn am Lagerfaß und verkostete das unfiltrierte Zwickelbier.

dnicolaescu (2054) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 24, 2016
Draft at Bier Haus Constanța, Romania. Subtle fruity, mealy, almost no hops. Subtle pale malts sweetness and hint of green fruit, just a touch of grassy hops. Very good.

darkseduction (717) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
50cl vom Fass @ Braustüberl. Strohgelb, leicht trüb, unglaublich erfrischend und süffig. Hopfenaromatisch, Hefe unterstreicht den eher malzigen Charakter.

SG111 (1296) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Tap at Zum Schneider, Montauk. Pours sort of hazy unfiltered looking pale yellow. Big white head. Aroma is sweet malt, lemon, not bad. Hard to describe but it ain’t bad. Flavor is lemon, lager-y, crisp, light malt is pleasant. Not bad.

egajdzis (6136) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Lightly hazed, golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, some toffee, grass. Taste of sweeter malts, pils malt, light grassy hops.This was OK.

Tap. Lightly hazy golden yellow. Some cracker, white fruit, slight malt sweetness and marshmallow in the aroma. Sweet hay, bread, and light fruitiness. Lighter to medium soft body. Eh, probably not in the best condition it could be in.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2015
(Draught at Lindenbräu Potsdamer Platz, Berlin, 15 July 2015) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, citrus, peaches, grass and dough. Malty taste with bread, grass, peaches, a touch of citrus and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight malt sweetness. Tasty and decent, but a bit middle-of-the-roadish. Quite enjoyable.
