EithCubes (4895) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Swing-top by 04.09.12, a gusher but I managed to catch all of it. Nose has some cracker and dog’s ass, wild grain and yeast - definitely a Zwickel. Gradient orange-golden body with a fizzy white head. Taste is sweet with layers of malt, has a bready, crackery resolution after the citrus has done its thing. Light body, a little hard and flat but refreshing and moreish.

Bottle. Medium amber with a thin head. Aroma is light dry malt. Flavour is dry pepper malt. Finish is dry and bittersweet.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2010
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish.

Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2008
First of all, this beer is opened on the best before date, and it is properly stored, so it should be OK. But as the first aroma spreads as i open the swingtop – I know that this is going to be the worst infected beer I ever experienced – OH MY GOD, this is beyond terrible. I do not know for sure how a mixture of vomit, yeast and caramel would taste and smell, but they are the notes I find in both aroma and flavour. I do not know how I managed to taste it without vomiting, but I did. It is so terrible, that 0.5 seems a very high score. The color was dark amber and the head was weak – and if I find it again some day, I will give it another try.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2007
Bügelverschlußflasche: Deep golden to light amber coloured, lively carbonation, stable and fluffy off-white head, sweet, clean pale malty (plus a faint touch of dark-malt) nose with nice floral hops around; solid sweet-bitter flavour, astonishingly "full" bodied for a beer of 4.5%; moderately lingering, bitter caramelly sweet finish. A pleasant and well balanced Bier....

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2007
(swing top bottle) Clear, bright amber colour with a big and dense off-white foamy head. Medium-sweet, slightly toasted malt aroma with a tinge of citrus and herbal, slightly woody hops. Moderately sweet flavour, light toasty fruity malty taste, light to medium bodied, although it has only 4.5% abv; smooth, pleasant mouthfeel; unfortunately it finishes a bit slim, sweet and slightly bitter with a light hoppy touch.
