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.

jerohen (2086) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2009
On draft somewhere in the Traunstein region. Hazy golden coloured, small but lasting head. Malty nose, citric notes, a bit grassy. Hopbitter flavour, very pleasant. Very easy to drink beer, very well suited for those 0.5 or 1 liter glasses that one finds everywhere here in Bavaria.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2009
Hazy straw colour. Fairly bready but pretty tasty. Some slightly herbaceous (nettles?), citric hoppy notes in the flavour. Mouthfeel is mellow and could be a touch firmer. Overall, clean, pleasant and well made. I tend to prefer a crisper, dryer lager but this softer specimen hit the spot just fine.

JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2008
Draught, presented as HBH Traunstein Kellerbier Huge, white head, clear metallic-golden beer; Fresh grassy notes, with quite some hoppy streaks. Again quite grassy flavourwise, with a near even balance between malts and hops, making it quite neutral. Ends a bit sweetish. Quite carbonated, spritzy. Retronasal near sticky malts. Light to medium bodied. Reasonable Kellerbier, cleared out by obviously good lagering.

(6/19/08) Draught at Lindenbräu brewpub in Berlin. Slightly hazy golden with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma is quite hoppy but with some notable malt character. Flavor starts sweetish and rather malty and continues hoppy and bitter with some grass notes. Light to medium body. OK.
