3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Malt House - Pours hazy, cloudy dark yellow with a small light-bubbled head. Bready and yeasty on the nose, with some honey, floral hops, and a real firm maltiness that keeps it all together. Fairly sweet, bready malt taste, with a nice floral hop finish. Real yeasty, and perhaps a bit too much sweetness, but this is fantastically refreshing. Light and tingly carbonation adds to the effect. So pumped that I got to have this on tap!

A Mes rate. Tap at the Draught House.Hazy yellow brown with a thin white head. Strong unbrewed malt character as expected. Lots of straw and hay. Pleasant bitterness. Innocent, straight forward and effortlessly drinkable. Rubbish but enjoyable.

This is really quite delicious. Draft a few times, bready, nice carbonation, on the softer side, really much better as it warms and opens up, nice almost ’wheaty’ like graininess, hops are a bit soft, I could use a tiny bit more edge, but I would never turn this beer down! Yum! needs to be way more like this! bring back the real beer!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Map Room, Chicago. Cloudy golden amber, robust clingy head. Hearty, fruit-kissed cereal aroma. Bready, husky grainy flavour, really tasty and malty. Hints of beguiling fruit, I’m guessing from the yeast. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2010 Draught at Map Room. Hazy gold with a mountain of white head. This is a serious looking beer. The aroma is lightly yeasty and hoppy with a creamy, sweet malt component. The hops are apparent but minty and herbaceous in a mellow way The flavor is lighter in bitterness but still well balanced and creamy. Even though the bartender said this keg was nearing its one month drink by date (try finding that in another European beer over here) I still though it had a very nice fresh yeasty quality.

A great example of a Zwickl. Pours golden with thick haze. Taste is fruity with a pronounced malty sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 On tap at the Map Room in Chicago. Wow I loved this beer. Unfiltered and unpasturized, making for a bright hazy yellow poor. Yeasty aroma, flavor is bready, light hops and citrus, yeast, some malts, with a lovely refreshing finish of corn and some grass. Something about it made me want to chew it, despite not really being a thick and chewy beer. Refreshing, delicious, and easy to drink--what’s not to love?
