COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
I had this at the Vienna Airport on tap. It was a real great find. It is an unfiltered pilsener in the Munich Helles style and has an endearing tartness to it. It is a full bodied pilsener with delicate hop and malt presence. The hop aroma is flowery. The flavour of this beer reminded me alot of the now defunct :( Denison's Bavarian Hell.

draft at immervoll in vienna. heavily cloudy yellow wheat body with a perfectly fine doughy, frothy white head. nose is spiced sweet fried breading with some mild fruit and lemon zest. prickly, zesty carbonation and tingly yeast... more lemon zest and cracker barley/biscuit/crackers tasted. moderately syrupy body, overall very fresh, lively and refreshing but lacks depth.

gunnar (5461) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2010
On tap @ Bermuda Brau, Vienna. Pours hazy yellow with a good creamy white head. Aroma is weak yeasty and dusty malts. Taste is dominated by the malts, medium sweet, and a nice yeasty flavour as well, makes this a very good zwickl.

NordicV (1182) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2011
Ser ut som ett glas nypressad grapefrukt-juice, gyllene. lättgrumligt. Med ett vitt lätt skum. En lätt doft bestående av citrus och jäst. Lätt maltighet och en frisk citrusfläkt i smaken. God och lättdrucken.
