blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Draft and bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Pale malty and grainy with some nice grassy notes. Some slight diacetyl showed up once. Not bad.

tkrjukoff (4304) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2010
Pours hazy light yellow with rich white head. Well carbonated. Strong grain aroma with yeasty tones, some floral aromas as well. Tart, acidy dry grass flavor. Acidy and full bodied on palate. Finishes with a dry bitter hoppy aftertaste.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 27, 2010
(bottle, courtesy of Allen) Hazy, pale golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Distinctively grainy and slightly yeasty nose. Moderately sweet flavour, slim bodied with a medium carbonation. Soft malty and grainy, slightly mineralic taste; moderately dry and slightly hoppy and yeasty bitter finish. Drinkable but uninspired Zwickel. 21.IV.10

pivnizub (10136) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 25, 2010
Bottle (Danke, Julian!): Hazy, pale golden, mid-sized white fluffy head; mineral water and a tinge of vegetables in the grainy nose; light - but a bit tart - sweet-bitter flavour; light bodied, short drier bitter-sweet finish with a yeasty touch. Drinkable, not great.......

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2010
Draught at Buddy’s Pub, Interlaken. Hazy yellow with a lively white head. Similar to the pils but noticeable diacetyl in this beer. Thin bodied. Fizzy finish. It’s drinkable when not much else for choice in the region.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2009
The Dan Journal #268. Tasted 7/2/09. 500ml Bottle. Mildly hazy with a pale golden hue. Spiraling white head. Grainy cereal aromas with a hint of strawberries and faint hops. Light to medium bodied with a grainy malt note. Tight yet controlled effervescence. Faint citrus note. Dry finish that lingers on the tongue. Crisp and tasty.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 2, 2008
Coloração dourada pálida, creme pouco denso e consistente, se desvanecendo rapidamente. Aroma e paladar quase inexistentes de lúpulo. Final amargo e metálico.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2008
Bottled 50cl. It pours an extremely pale hazy yellow beer with a lasting white head. The nose is citrussy, malty with notes of chestnuts and soy sauce. Mediocre taste. Watery and grainy. Low bitterness. Astringent. Some lemon and lime showing up. Poor malt and hop profile. Light bodied and boring. Buttery finish. A bad Zwickel.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - JUN 29, 2008
Garrafa, junho/2008. Trazida da Suíça e degustada no Brasil. Pilsen mediana, com um bom aroma lupulado, mas com um sabor muito fraco. Se o sabor seguisse o aroma, teríamos uma pilsen muito parecida com as alemãs.

asheft (2960) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2008
[on tap in Interlaken] Malt aroma ruined by high diacetyl, popcorn butter. Slightly hazy golden straw with nice, lacy white top. Fresh hops and crips malt flavour that has a sort of citrusy finish reminiscent of a British ale (i.e., from the yeast). Massive diacetyl levels present, but good bitterness. Medium carbonation that goes well with the bitterness. Light to medium body with still some citrus in the finish.
