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.

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.

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.

jerohen (2169) - 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.

Beershine (5221) - 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.

Nuffield (4065) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2007
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.

As Lindenbrau Hopfinger - Hazy, bright blond with bright white and lasting head. Very fresh tasting. Good bitterness in the finish. A great thirst quencher.

reggiedunlop (3657) - 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.

darkseduction (715) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
50cl vom Fass @ Braustüberl. Strohgelb, leicht trüb, unglaublich erfrischend und süffig. Hopfenaromatisch, Hefe unterstreicht den eher malzigen Charakter.
