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.

gunnar (8031) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2012
On tap at the Sony Centre, Berlin. Pours hazy straw coloured with a small creamy white head. Aroma is grainy and yeasty with some faint hops. Taste is moderate sweet grainy, slightly sour acidic, bad sanitized lines probably. Anyway this wasn´t a beer to remember.

At Lindenbräu, Sony Center, Berlin. Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Mild herbal hop aroma with bready malt and a touch of caramel. Sweetish malty flavour with herbal hops and a fruity hint. Plenty carbonation

omhper (23731) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2011
Draught at Bier Haus Constanta, Constanta, Romania. Hazy pale yellow, firm head. Buttery nose. Mid dry with light-medium body and dense rounded mouthfeel. Grassy hops leads to a long spicy bitterness. Rather heavy handed and a bit resiny.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Draft @ Lindenbrau Berlin. Nicely hazed light gold. Very fresh aroma is crisp and grassy. The sweet pale malts are balanced by delicate hop flavors that linger nicely. The unfilteredness helps the body be juicy. A bit sweet but still good.

Druaght from zum. Poured a cloudy off yellow. A bit on the lighter side for a keller/zwick.

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2011
On tap at Sony Centre, Berlin. Light, very light, really. Not much character to this. A Zwickl should have slightly roguher edges than this.

Swift (Sample): Apparently the bar accidentally got this keg delivered to them when it was in reality bound for a German bar in the area, who was quite upset at the loss of this beer. Anyway, it pours a yellow color that is a bit hazy. Nice quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of dry German hops and some bread. Taste is a little bit on the bitter side, but is really smooth. Not watery at all, with a nice bready feel to it. Good texture.
