COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Ottakringer Zwickl Rot.
Wer nach einem ganz besonderen Geschmackserlebnis sucht, hat es mit dem roten Zwickl gefunden. Durch ein spezielles, sehr aufwändiges Mälzungsverfahren erhält es seine typisch rötliche Färbung – und den unverwechselbar schokoladigen und karamelligen Geschmack. Bernsteinfarben, naturtrüb und einzigartig – eine verführerisch-mutige Bierinnovation, die man gekostet haben sollte! 12.2°

22/01 Draught at the 3 Goldenen Kugeln, Graz. It had hazy reddish brown body with medium, slightly off white head. Weaker, sourish aroma, also peachy. Very slightly sweet caramel flavor, balanced with grass hops, but although pleasant it was quite watery. No matter of its thin body, awarded us with quite long, mostly hoppy finish, sourish to slightly bitter, with some caramel sweetness emerging at the very end. It’s definitely a Zwickl, not a Vienna, but I’m not too impressed after all.

Keg at Alten Kaisermuhlen, Wien. Vivid dark orangey copper, fluffy white head. Restrained nose, soft malts, definite Saaz "lageriness." Thin bodied, nice floral hop flavours over a honeyed malt background. A very tasty, well-balanced and interesting lager.

Drunk on draught in Vienna. Lovely red coloured fresh tasting zwickl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perhaps a new addition to the Ottakringer line since I didn't see it in November. Caramel malt addition leaves this beer light red and with a much fuller body than the regular Zwickel. A very enjoyable brew.

Moravius (568) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2014
Vom Faß im Universitätsbräuhaus im Alten AHK, Wien. - Rotbraun, trüb, hellbräunlicher Schaum. - In der Nase fruchtiges, leicht röstiges Karamelmalz. - Antrunk karamelmalzig mit leichten Toastnoten, erfreulich wenig süß, mild fruchtig-herb und kaum bitter. Erfrischend fruchtig-säuerliche Akzente (Weintrauben). Mild rezent, schlank; hefig-volles Mundgefühl. Im Abgang etwas fruchtig herb. Auch beim Wärmerwerden noch sehr schmackhaft. - Angenehmes, gut abgerundetes und süffiges Rotbier.

rozsoma (508) - HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2014
Nagyon fincsi hámozott szotyi íz lelhető fel benne. Túlságosan is sok. Kicsit iszapos is, ami nem tesz jót az állagának. De összeségében dicsérendő, bár most jobban meggondolva egy kicsit hányásíze van. Talán a Stohl Bucinak ízlene.

Saeglopur (403) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Draught. Deep amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, slightly beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, flowers, grains. Tastes of roasted malts, red berries, flowers, caramel, grains, herbs. Mouthfeel is medium to light, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, medium bitter and a bit fruity. Nice! One of the best Vienna style Lagers from Austria and one of the very few enjoyable beers from this brewery. Really nice, fresh aromas and very quaffable.

It seems harder than it should be to find Vienna lagers in Vienna. This is the only one I found and I was satisfied. The color is unmistakably amber red. Creamy toasted malt aroma. Lacey and sweet. Much better than the other plain Ottakringer lagers on tap at Gasometer concert halle.

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap: This looks really nice, hazy reddish brown with a yellowish head. Predominantly flowery and perfumy nose, some soapiness - very subtle and inoffensive, almost too boring. The flavour is slightly roasty and again flowery/hoppy, followed by a short finish. Kind of fizzy but not as watery as the regular Ottakringer as far as I remember. Still mostly unspectacular.
