Sebilinz (1174) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle, bottled on 22. 04. 2015. Cloudy yellow body with white head. Aroma is some citrus with yeast and also bread and malts. Taste is first some malts with hay and grass then some citrus and floral notes. Aftertaste is medium bitter with a little bit sourness balanced by some malts. I am surprised I never liked Schwechater but the Zwickl is really nice.

Saeglopur (1172) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 12, 2015
500 ml, bottled 22.04.2015, from a supermarket.
Pale yellow, cloudy body, with a big, frothy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of hay, flowers, grass, bread, some sweet malts.
Tastes of bread, flowers, grass, grains, citrus, sweet malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, grainy, citric, hoppy, yeasty.

Very nice. Enjoyable floral, bready notes and quite a lot of citric hops. The taste isn’t fully on par with the really nice nose though. Overall one of my favourite Zwickels from Austria.

16erBlech (296) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 27, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2015 0,5l bottle. Its funny that Schwechater brews such a good Zwickl, cause their main beer is just average. Refreshing bitterness, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy sunny yellow milky orange with a creamy, lacy, lasting, tan head. Smells of orange-citrus, yeast, grass, hay and bread. Tastes of dough, yeast, fruit, and a bitter grassy fruity finish. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Decent and interesting,

inbirraveritas (1368) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 28, 2014
Bottled, 0.5 l. Hazy yellow one with a creamy and lasting white head on its top. Fresh grassy nose. Tasteing starts crisp followed by a somewhat clean aroma containing honey, bread, lemon and grassy hops, mouthfeel is slick and moderate thin. Dry, hoppy-breadcrusty-lemony finish. Aside from its cleaned mass touch, overall not bad...

HerrBierkoenig (668) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 27, 2014
From 0,5l bottle. Many thanks to Martin M. BBD: 19.07.2014. Pours: Interesting deep cloudy straw yellow to khaki liquid (reminds me freshly fermented grape juice - before sedimentation - "burčák"). Nice medium frothy white head. Aroma: yeasty, malty, citrus- lemon, dust. Taste: light sweat, light bitter, light sour. Yeast, dust, lemon, perhaps minor banana?. Palate: Medium body, creamy to sticky texture, average carbonation, medium long bitter finish. Overall: interesting (appearance and aroma), the taste was bit poor and abrupt. Nevertheless, for Heineken owned brewery quiet good.
