COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Straight from the tanks, unfiltered, this bier has undergone its third and final fermentation in the bottle in order to insure you the freshest possible lager bier. Expect this bier to be smooth, full-bodied, and slightly cloudy. The brewer’s yeast imparts a mild, fresh character which is as close as you can get to brewery fresh.

Bottle - thanks to badgerben. Pours hazy orangey-amber with a thin off white head. Nice fresh lager aroma, heavy on the malts, slightly yeasty with citrus notes as well. Flavor is good, sweet, yet with a crisp hop bite on the tongue and cheeks. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad overall - very enjoyable.

Orange color with no head. Slightly bitter aroma. Grany taste, but not much else there. It’s tasty enough, but there’s really nothing to it.

Orange Coloring With White Ring. Hops And Grain Flavors...Fruity Aroma... Not Sure What to Think of it, But This is My First Zwickel. Definitly a Decent Brew.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2004

IndianaRed (2569) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Bottle Pours a light foggy amber with a very short lived fizzy head. Faint spotty lacing. Aroma is light and yeasty with light bread/biscuit notes. Flavor is like a sweet pilsner. Kind of like honey and toast. Very littel hops. A bit of fruitlike flavors like apricot or peach. Lively carbonation and a pleasant bread like aftertaste. Thanks to MrFacto

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2004
This brew has an amazing sweet malt aroma mixed with some nice floral hops and a faint spicing. Taste is nice and light malted with a good caramelization to the malt. Little hints of honey in the start, with a wheaty/breadiness, followed by some nice subtle floral hopping to balance. Sweetness trails off into the aftertaste, just a really nice drinkable brew. Pours a rich glowing golden color with a stable white head.

Silphium (3178) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Light cloudy amber body with aggressive carbonation, medium off-white head. Nice earthy, slightly spicy hops nose with bready yeast notes. Body is quite yeasty/bready and very earthy with leafy hops balance. Hints of lemon sharpen the mouthfeel and lend an acidic quality to the otherwise neutral body. Feels like some Saaz action. I’ve had only a couple beers of this style but it is definitely a unique one. Thanks Matt (MrFacto) for the bottle!

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Fresh, lightly toasted malt nose. Slightly hazy, deep gold color. Medium carbonation with a nice, uneven, off-white head. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. A bit of hops to dry out the finish. Nicely balanced beer. Clean, unimposing and very drinkable. Another great beer from a great brewery.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Semi-sweet malts, apple, and pear in the aroma. Lightly hazy golden brown color with a thin white head. Lightly sweet, some hints of toasted malts, light fruit notes. Mild crisp hop finish . Nice mouth feel. Quite drinkable. Thanks MrFacto

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pours a hazy golden yellow, small white head. Aroma of apple cider and malt. Flavor is interesting citrus, hops and a light malt is what Im calling. Slimy on the palate, a nice Brew! Very interesting.
