Formerly Ottakringer Zwickl.

Zwickl, wie man es kennt und liebt: Naturtrüb, cremig, erfrischend mild – und natürlich direkt vom Fass. Denn genau wie damals, als man das Bier vor der Filtration noch einmal vom Zwickl-Hahn gekostet hat, schmeckt es auch heute frisch gezapft einfach am besten. Seine naturtrüben Bestandteile mit ihren weichen, abgerundeten Aromen machen das Zwickl zu einer ganz speziellen Sorte. Und zu einem einzigartigen Geschmackserlebnis! 12.2°

When there´s nothing else but pils or märzen on the menu here in Vienna, I order a Zwickl, cause at least it tastes like something. All in all it´s a fresh beer, kinda sweet with a hoppy aftertaste. Ok if you don´t have any other choice.

Kita (1916) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 31, 2014
On tap, 0.50l. Hazy pale golden color with large frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of herbal hops, citrus, bread and cereals. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by refreshing citric and yeasty acidity, while finish is light bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. It’s a good thirst killer...

Cristobal37 (819) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 3, 2013
The kind of beer you drink at a concert cos it’s cold and tastes slightly (perhaps) different than the lager on tap next to it. Only when you have no other options and need a beer injection.

Tap at Crossfield, Vienna.
Hazy yellow appearance woth a fine froathy white head. Aroma of bread, yeast, some herbal hops. Lively carbonation brings the yeasty and bready flavor. Sourish yeast, bittersweet finish with balanced hops. Drinkable, fine.

Scopey (12720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Tap at Bermuda Brau Vienna. It pours cloudy yellow with a medium white head. The nose is dough, grass, spice, apricot and sponge cake. The taste is dough, grass, spice, apricot, peach and pithy lemon with a dry finish. Good flavour and drinkability. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. A pleasant zwickl.

Coudy light yellow color with frosty white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is mainly citrus, although some hop is there present. Taste is fresh citrus fruit and hoppy bitterness. Good aftertaste, bittersweet. (Vienna 201210)

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2012
From tap. Pours lemony cloudy yellow with dense, white head. Citrussy aroma, fairly fresh but slightly bland flavour. Not a bad beer, but nothing to get all up in arms over either.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
From tap in a Wiener cafe. Pours unclear bright yellow, topped by entierly white cream head. Dough, white bread and zesty citrus to the nose. Soft malty and yeasy, lemon infused flavor. Light bitterish spice tones underneath. Light-bodied. Sparkling mouthfeel. Perfumey endnotes. Soft and simple. Easy drinking, though.
