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°

Tap at Bermuda Brau, Vienna. Pours cloudy yellow with a white foam head. Mild bread and dough aroma. Medium sweet flavor with semi-crisp bread and modest straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly crisp and sweet finish with more light cereal and dough. It’s fine.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
Draught, 5.2% at the brewpub. Very cloudy yellow colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is quite mild, some yeast. Clean, yeasty and boring.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2004
On tap at Bermuda Brau, Wien. Hazed orange with huge head (I want to ask for top ups!!). I get nothing more than a light lemony tea note with this, a little staleness on the hops. A new style for me and I didn’t like it, blast.

Scopey (12508) - 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.

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2008
On tap at Krah-Krah, Vienna: Hazy, pale golden with a lacy, mid-sized white head; yeasty-sourish nose with some pale-malty influences, a bit barnyardy, too; light to moderate sweetish-sourish flavour, light bodied; lingering sourish and fruity finish. Not so convincing.............

KyotoLefty (9306) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2010
On tap in Vienna. Very cloudy, smooth, creamy, slightly sweet. Very good malt. I would put it at the top of the major zwickl I have had in Austria. Good yeast flavor, medium to heavy body. Very enjoyable.
