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°

Translated with Google translator (from German to English) This is my favorite beer! It is unique! Both its color and its taste. It tastes full-bodied, tasty and refreshing.

Draught at Anton Frank/ Wien 18. Well, what shall I say? Also this Ottakringer is a favorite of mine. It looks like it tastes: Great! ---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.

KyotoLefty (6574) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2010
Draught at the Schweizerhaus, Prater, Vienna, where they called it "Rotes Zwickl." I am not really sure just what style of beer this is aiming for. It is reddish-brown in color, very cloudy. Has a rich, malty, fruity, and quite sour flavor that even resembles a Flemish ale slightly. It has a slightly sour, yeasty aroma as well. This was very nice stuff, interesting and original, and more complex than their others beers.

Saeglopur (369) - 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.

Comments: Draught at Hopfhaus in Wien. I was quite impressed to encounter such a (moderately) complex beer from Ottakringer. Fun caramelly maltiness blended with plums, grass, honey.. Sweet, yet drinkable. Earthy, dark and fun flavours.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2012
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.

Cristobal37 (266) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - NOV 3, 2013
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.

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.
