3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought in a Billa, Vienna, 0,5 l bottle. Nice golden-opalescent appearance with a small but delicious lacing white head. Aroma of pale malt, fine sourish yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation with a character of the style, some fresh and sourish yeast, some crude taste of the fermented wort made from pale malt. Refreshing one, nice zwickl with a balanced aftertaste includes a little hop.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 100% bio, naturtruub, etc. etc. Pours cloudy yellow-gold, nose is nutty and grassy. Mild bitterness cushioned by that lightly sweet nuttiness, but it shows through better when the beer is cold. Interesting and it could be much worse.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle my mum brought from Linz, thanks! It had murky lighter yellow body with medium sized head and few bigger yeast particles floating inside. Really nice aroma, kinda weak but with that subtle honey maltiness and grapefruit hops. Flavor was also tasty, somewhat malty, slightly orange bitterish, yeasty notes, but a bit watery. Fine finish follows the taste, but I was sorry for some strange dryness near its end. Anyway, it would be a great refresher for a summertime and it was perfectly getting along with special burek Doggythedog’s mother made this evening :) The best Zwickl I’ve tried so far!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with heavy whose mother brought it from Austria (thanks!)
Poured an opaque yellow body tinged a bit with orange. A dusty nose with notes of honey and orange. Odd. A nice dusty, flowery taste, light honey, light lacticity and acidity. Subtle hopiness carrying notes of orange. Delicate and kinda interesting.
