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.

reggiedunlop (3648) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours a mildly hazy pale yellow with a thick white head...excellent retention and lacing...lively looking. Aroma has some slightly sweet grain and hay...mild grassy hops. Flavor follows suit...great delicate grassiness but still a slight grainy sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and grassy/spicy/minerally.

3fourths (9104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Apple juice and vitamin b to go with soupy pale malt / soggy crackers. Sweet, low bitterness, low acid and low carbonation leave the body flaccid. Lifeless apple and pear dominate and there’s only a trace of lemon-y hop character to be found. Questionable shape or just poorly made or both. Hazed gold with little to no head. From draft at Der Biergarten in Atlanta.

Draught @ Hopfingerbräu im Palais, Berlin. Rated on 12.08.2013.
Pours a golden hazy colour with a small white foamy head. Aroma of sweet malts, straw and some herbal notes. Flavour of sweet malts, grains, grassy hops and strong herbal and earthy flavours. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sweetish herbal finish. Could use a heavier body.

Traunstein 1612 zwickbier Pour me another. Fine tasting. Lite as feather but very tasteful. A lot of sweet yeast flavor. This is great. Not sure how accessible it is but this represents a pretty cool and tasty style. Need a good version of this local.
