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.

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.

Yellow, slightly pale, continuing vigorous white head. Lots of body, good sustained carbonation. Low bitterness. Low malt, but consistent and enjoyable flavor. Highly drinkable, and a one-tenth point bump for a good experience. Tap at Lindenbrau at Sony Center, Berlin.

This beer is now near the top of the list of my favorites. I drank this last time I was in berlin, at the sony center at potsdamer platz. In the only german restaurant there I think. For my taste it was perfect. I’d love to have this imported here in the states.
