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°

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

KyotoLefty (9305) - 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.

Draft in Vienna on 09 June 2011. Cloudy/dense golden with a lovely creamy white, lacing/Orval head. Nose is yeasty, medium citrus, light grass and hay. Very inviting. Lovely yeasty/doughy taste. Lightly bitter, lightly sour/citrusy, but man that dough/yeast is a lovey, creamy-textured wave of joy. Full buy extremely soft and creamy body. On this day, just really perfect for this moment. Lässt erfrischen!

jgb9348 (5681) - 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.
