Flasche mit Dank nach Bochum! Hazy golden colour, white head. Malty-grainy base, some shy but good hops, resiny and slightly grassy.

Mortlach (1019) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Ambrata scarica, abbastanza limpida, schiuma abbondante, discretamente persistente. Al naso sentori di pane, latte, biscotto, lieviti, stalla. In bocca è magnifica, un succo di pane liquido, magnificamente equilibrata, si beve facile ma ha anche tanta "sostanza", appaga ma non sazia. Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Ottima Zwickel.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2014
So meisterlich ist es gar nicht mal. Schön trocken mit grasigen Anklängen, dazu ein wenig Hopfen und ein frischer Abgang, Nicht Herausragendes, wenn auch sehr solide in seinen Eigenschaften.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer pours out in a hazy amber-brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and bread with some dusty hints. Taste of fresh hops, light barley, light malt, bread, straw and nuts. Nice and easy to drink, good and solid Zwickl.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2014
(bottle) Slightly hazy, deep amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of bread crusts, caramel, traces of (wal-)nuts and a mildly herbal-spicy hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Nutty toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, bread and herbal hops; dry-ish toast-malty finish with a spicy hop dosage. Very balanced and rounded Franconian Lager. 20.IX.14

mikeyo1 (277) - 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 (606) - 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 (11891) - 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.
