Bright and vibrant beer for summertime celebrations! This Zwicklerbier, an uncommon style, is an unfiltered lager that balances crisp and elegant honey-like malt flavor with assertive, classic German hop character.

12 oz can poured, left over from Eugene’s Memorial Day party. Still quite fresh. Thanks for the can! This seemed like a fitting choice to start today off. It’s not quite 11 am, and it’s already 80° out. Traveling to Florida this week, but it’s plenty hot up here in the PNW. The sun on this can sums out this weekend for sure. Hazy golden pour with a loose bubble head. Pleasant grain aroma. Flavor is a touch of sweet, but mostly a light refreshing beer to drink outside. This beer is a good indicator that summer more or less began this weekend. Try to say Ziggy Zoggy Zwickel five times fast. If you can do it, I’ll buy you one. Overall, this was delicious.

12oz can, dated 138th day of 2016, which is May 17th, so very fresh. I bought this only because I realized its a zwickel, who would of guessed. Also, I was having a Memorial Day party, so a sixer at $8 for a fresh unfiltered lager is indeed a worthy purchase. Clear, dim golden color. Clean beer, a little malt sweetness but very earthy unfiltered lager with light noble hoppiness. Surprisingly well done beer.

Can share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light grains, corn, some herbs. Taste is clean, grains, very mild honey, some grassy / herbal notes. An enjoyable and clean lager with a nice earthy character.

Draft. Clear light gold pour. Cereal grains, orange and grassy aroma. Sweeter body with same grass hop finish, low bitterness. Thinner body.

From a can. Hoppy orange aroma. Pours cloudy blonde with not much carbonation or head. Crisp flavour with mild notes of orange and restrained hoppiness. Medium bodied with a mild bitter finish.

Great honey flavor and light mouth feel. The 5% will keep you out of trouble. Great for a hot, Friday afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. A deep gold with a thick fluffy head. The nose is floral hops & crisp malts. Body is light to watery. The taste is sweet, malty, honey, light hops & a hint of diacetyl. It's a decent lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (22oz): somewhat cloudy darkish golden. Not bad for a lager, but I am not normally fond of lagers. Medium body.

Color is cloudy straw gold. Pours a thin white head with some lacing. Aroma is bread hops and some faint banana / spice. Taste is biscuity and citrus, body is thin. Has a hint of spice on the finish. Pleasant and light but a bit more bitter than I tend to like.
