Had this at Brauhaus Lemke am Hackescher Markt, Mitte, Berlin, Germany Friday 15th November 2013 Pours dark gold only a very slight haze looks good. In the mouth this is malty but full flavoured, good temperature, sweetish with a bitterness that follows. quite clean tasting, soft in mouth bit of orange in aftertaste. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Diplomatic honeyed malts approach minty hops and take them to a quiet conclusion in this balanced but boring Zwickelbier.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the misty dark golden.
-Bitterness is too low for my liking, especially since the malts or sugars don’t even attempt to fill the void in the aftertaste.
-Dusty edges are found.
-This is quaffable, but eminently forgettable.
-Natural carbonation might have served this flavor profile better.
On tap at the Hackescher Markt location.
