mikeyo1 (210) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle @ home. From hopfen & malz, berlin. Pours clear amber with a medium beige frothy head. Malty and herbal aroma with caramel, grains, nuts, toast and some floral notes. Crisp dry taste with caramel sweetness, herbs, nuts, grass,hints of red fruits. Finish has more herbs, some flowers and a nice touch of fresh spruce needles and resin and a spicy bitternes that lingers in the aftertaste.

Moravius (494) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Flasche (50 cl) als "Zwickl-Bier" von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Dunkles Goldbraun, trüb. - In der Nase schöne Karamelsüße mit hintergründiger Frucht und etwas pfeffriger fränkischer Hopfen. - Im Antrunk ebenfalls aromatisch karamelsüß aber nicht dick, fein ausbalanciert durch zarte fruchtige Schärfe und würzigen fränkischen Hopfen. Münchner Malz mit kräftiger Brotkruste. Gut rezent, vollmundig, mild hefig. Im Abgang nicht zu schwacher, würzig-pfeffriger Hopfen und Mokka. Ausreichend bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schönes dunkles Zwickel mit der klassisch fränkischen Kombination von sehr guten Malzaromen und würzigem Hopfen. Sehr empfehlenswert. Darf auf keinen Fall zu kalt getrunken werden, sonst kommen die Aromen nicht recht zur Geltung. Leider scheint die Qualität größeren Schwankungen zu unterliegen: zwei andere Flaschen schmeckten unharmonisch schroff.

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours lightly hazy amber with a mild, white film head. Bland aroma, some cereal. Light sweet flavor with darkened cereal grains, bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Bland finish, just some further cereal, faint toast. Not too good. I like lager and zwickel more specifically, but this beer just didn’t sing.

Draft at Franconian beer festival. Hazy red-brown with fizzy head. Mild but rustic dough aromas without any flaws. Quaffable palate. Has a nice hoppy and toasty balance of good yummy bready flavors. Very nice!

omhper (19383) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. A new offer. Comes out cloudy nut brown, small head. Perfumy roasty nose. Sweetish, but dried out by good amounts of grassy hops. Rounded, vital malty bck bone and long salty bitter finish. Fresh and tasty!
