On tap: Golden, hazy, big stable white fluffy head; pale-malty and fruity-yeasty nose, hops detectable, light bodied, spritzy; increasing - but still mild - hoppiness towards the grainy-yeasty finish. Average brew.....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Oranges and various herbs come from this unfiltered lager’s hop personality, as banana esters dive into a dry finish.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam hangs on to the misty orange. Nice head retention on this one.
-The effervescence is overzealous and gets in the way of the flavor profile somewhat..
-The flavor profile is subtle, yet this brew is not süffig. It is quite drinkable, but also forgettable.
-The mouthfeel needs work and the base malts deserve more room to express themselves.
On tap at the Paulaner Brauhaus in Munich.

A smooth, tasty Zwickel that goes down all too easy. This is probably the best beer I sampled at Paulaner Bräuhaus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite cloudy, even for a zwickel. Dull tan. Footy nose but with toasty hops. Footy, country/stale horse shit accent is predominant, and lends the beer an interesting character.
