Great zwikel, it has been clarifying in time but still a great beer, optimal balance between the hop character and the malts, more sweet than bitter but not too sweet. A really nice session beer always perfectly brewed.

Tap at 4:20, Rome. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy, white head. Biscuity malt nose, light grass. Medium sweet, more biscuity malts, light corn. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Sweet, light bitter finish, more bread. A great drinker.

Light gold color, cloudy and hazy. Small white foamy head. Aroma is grassy and grainy, with a sweet malt undertone. A medium bodied zwickel. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Nice clean lager. Very active, small fine carbonation. Light and refreshing. It is very light tasting and any flavor flaws would be very noticeable. Nice beer. This beer has a very funky looking pull top bottle cap. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

cpetrone84 (1450) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber orange with yellow edges and a creamy, mostly tight off white head. Nose is nice with lots of zest, lemon, pepper and dusty and a touch of banana candy. Faint citrus hop in back. Taste is pretty solid, zesty lemon and white peppery spice are followed by some earthy dustiness and a fair bit of citrus hop. Light body with good carbonation and slightly dry finish.

Olyan színe és állaga van, mintha erősen citromos teát látnánk a poharunkba, amibe valahonnan, pár apró buborék került. Habja krétafehér, közepes méretű, krémes és elég jól bírja. Illata citrusos, vizes lópokrócos, malátás, kissé fanyar. Ízében nagyon szépen egyensúlyozik a maláta gyümölcsös édessége és a komló kissé fojtós, szalmás kesernyéssége. Hozzájuk kapcsolódik még egy kis citrusos fanyarság és egy kis pincés dohosság és egy falatnyi mogyoró. Közepesen testes és enyhén szénsavas. Utóíze citrusosan fanyar és kissé száraz, keserédes. Nagyon kellemes sör, ami mellett igen jól lehet traccsolni.

Mortlach (970) - Rome, ITALY - APR 22, 2012
20/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata spenta, lievemente torbida, con buona schiuma biancastra. Aroma non molto intenso ma meravigliosamente armonioso, sentori di pane (lieviti), latte e miele (orzo). In bocca č dolciastra, delicata, maltata, con amaro non percettibile, ma che contribuisce al bilanciamento complessivo della birra. Sorso dopo sorso emerge una gradevole e inaspettata complessitŕ nonostante la sua semplicitŕ di base. Corpo medio, carbonazione molto (troppo) abbondante. Davvero una bella birra, peccato per la carbonazione eccessiva che ne limita la bevibilitŕ.

Bottled, gift from my mother. Slightly hazy golden colored, small white head. Dusty nose, hops, very German, nice. Watery and bitter flavor, pleasant lasting bitter finish. The first beer of my holiday in Germany, let the good times begin :-).

On draft @ 4:20 Rome...Giaollo paglierino, schiuma bianca brillante, elegante e vellutata. Profumo di grano, fieno e fruttta gialla, ananas e mela. Buona carbonazione, morbida e rinfrescante, leggera e beverina non molto persistente ed č perciň che appdena finita invoglia subito ad una successiva pinta..Nel suo genere grande zwickl...

On tap at Summer Beer Festival Rome on MesandSim’s epic stag do. Slightly hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Dusty malt aroma with hints of hops. Bit of creamy vanilla and hints of lemon in the flavour. Pretty drinkable actually, not bad.
