Bottle 33cl a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is hopy, aroma is sweet, malty but very hopy, grassy and resin notes, so nice hops bouquet, nice bitterness at the finish, the beer is oily.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2009
33cl swing top bottle; Cloudy, yellow colour with a big but loose foamy white head, leaving lace-work. Yeasty and sweet pale malty and doughy aroma with herbal spice and nettle-like hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, slim bodied with a gentle well-carbonated mouthfeel. Yeasty malty base with spicy hops from the start; moderately dry and bitter hoppy finish. Another well-rounded brew from Ketterer. 26.XI.08

MiP (15264) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle, 4.9%. Faint flowery hop aroma. Hazy very pale yellow colour. Nice stable white head. The flavour is not as weak as the colour might suggest. A little sweet with a good malt level. Light malts, perhaps slightly papery, but nice. Quite a lot of hop flavour, flowery and slightly sweet.

jonas (6785) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 13, 2009
Zwickel implies yeast - not much in my bottle: Pale golden with a rocky white head, light hazy if you really swirl it. Flowery aromatic hop nose. Godd hop profile: starts grassy, light flowers, a hint honey - on a lean yet chewy bready base. Mellow mouthfeel. Aromatic hops retronasal.

pivnizub (10132) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2008
Bügelverschlußflasche von Quack-Duck. Pale golden, hazy, big fluffy - slowly collapsing - rocky white head. Sweet pale malt, but mainly dry aromatic hops in the nose. Moderate bitter-sweet flavour, soft, creamy MF. Lingering hoppy and malty finish with a light fruitiness underneath. A very pleasant Zwickel......

Dorqui (2188) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 28, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Yellow shining color with optimal bubbly aspect of good persistent. Lightly hazy with a good and compact head. Lightly prickly aroma with notes of malt, straw and light erbaceus notes. Decidly lively taste even if a lot watery and with a very modest alcoholic perception. Not much perfumed with a little persistence but with an agreable bitterish final.
