Blond lager, unfiltered (Zwickel). Light hop aroma; citrusy, soda-like. Watery, a bit metallic, only some malt and hop hardly perceivable in the background. Poor palate, sharply bitter and not aromatic.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.......

(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

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light yellow colored, medium sized white head. Slightly hazy appearance. Lemony and estery aroma with some hints of yeast. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is similar: lemon dominates, some fruity esters and mild hops also there. Aftertaste lasts with this mild hops. Not very interesting one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased in Switzerland, somewhere between Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen: Bright golden in the first pour; became cloudier -- and tastier -- with the sediment from the second pour. Malts were chalky, dry and cracker-like, with only a slight sweetness. Bitterness was zingy, followed by some herbs and spices. Faint yeast flavors surfaced in the background. Nothing spectacular, but not too shabby, either.
