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°

Moravius (810) - 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.

<i>Draught at Bettelstudent, Vienna. </i> Cloudy amber, rich creamy head. Creamy dough with custard and salt. Soft and somewhat grassy with aniseed and fennel coming through towards a slightly resiny finish. Like drinking dough.

Humm, guessing this is it, as the Gösser Jubiläumsbier is refered to mostly as "Dunkles Zwickl". Draught at the 3 Goldenen Kugeln, Seiersberg, Graz as the "beer of the month". Anyway, poured a darker, completely murky red colour. Fruity malty nose, nothing too special. The taste is pretty much more of the same, full and kinda ruined by some kind of acidity and yeastiness. Slightly underwhelming, but still better than the average Austrian lager and it did well to douse the fires the lovely 3 Goldenen Kugeln Country Cordon left in my untrained mouth. I’ll probably rerate this at a point since I’m not 100% sure if I should even be rating it.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 8, 2011
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.
