Schwechater Zwickl passt besonders gut zu cremigen Erdäpfelpürees serviert mit Kalbsbutterschnitzel oder aber auch zu schärferen Gerichten wie Chili con Carne. Zu empfehlen ist es auch zu bunten Salaten mit gebratenen Putenstreifen. Milde Käse harmonieren ebenfalls mit dem prämierten Zwickl. 12.5°

jgb9348 (5723) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Hazy golden coloured body with a bright orange glow and a thin off-white head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of yeast, light spices, wheat, malt, sugar and a trace of grain - nice. Light-bodied; Strong yeast, wheat and wort flavours with some nice flowers and grain noticeable along with a small bit of caster sugar sweetness. Aftertaste is light and airy with some sweetness noticeable, a little grain and the smallest hint of salt. Overall, nice to sample this one, and it looked good in the bottle and went nicely all the way to the very end - nice to sample this style locally! I sampled this narrow 50 cL bottle purchased yesterday here in the centre of Wien, Austria at Spar [Gourmet] on 21-March-2016 for €1,09 sampled in my apartment hotel on 22-March-2016 a day later in central Wien, Austria on 22-March-2016.

Sebilinz (1826) - 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 (1731) - 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.
