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°

Bottle: cloudy, golden, bigger, slowly collapsing fluffy white head; moderate fruity-yeasty nose with a clean sweet-malty background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite soft MF; longer sweet-fruity and slight bitter finish. Good, well drinkable Zwickel.........

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
This amenable Zwicklbier relies on its minty, herbal hops and its huggable blond cereals to sculpt a balanced and healthy pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A layer of foam protects the cloudy blond.
-The nose is a tad too timid for my tastes.
-This could be hoppier, but it is still quite good as is.
-Light citrus leaks from the hops, working well with the hay-like cereals.

Bottle. Best before January 23rd, 2009 (drunk on Dec.28).

KyotoLefty (9388) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Tasted from the bottle in August 2006, Wien. Light yellow color, extremely cloudy. Tall, fine head. Extremely strong lemon aroma. Sour, with just a touch of sweetness. Very aromatic. Somewhat like a lambic in its nose. Sour flavor, with lemon and spice. Good malt, but little sweetness. Good hops, but it is ruled by a refreshing, sour flavor. Very drinkable; fantastic. Dry, sour, hoppy finish, long lasting. Maybe the best bottled Austrian beer I have tried, certainly the most interesting and original.

draught at Prilisauer Wien. Very cloudy pale golden yellow, creamy white head. Malty with a yeasty fruity touch and shy hops in the finish. Good to accompany my Wiener Schnitzel.
