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.

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 (5906) - 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.

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 (1358) - 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 (230) - 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.
