3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml flip-top bottle in Garmisch, Germany. Pours a hazy gold with a soft bubbly head. Aroma is sweet malt, fruit and wet paper. Taste is a full body spicy version of the aroma. Palate is smooth but ends tart. Good stuff.

500ml Buegelflasche. It starts off rather oddly with a soy sauce flavor but evolves into a crappier but still decent Zwickl.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle looks very simple, like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass better. Fine turbid, nice head. Starts quite soapy and dry, sourish, very unbalanced. Finish a bit better but still very soapy. Not my favourite!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma has notes of apples and flowers.
Cloudy pale yellow, nice stable head and champagne carbonation.
Mostly neutral taste,
a bit bitterhops in the aftertaste.
Other Zwickl are more interresting.
Quite similar to the Öko-Urtrunk, but the brewery informed me they are different beers.
