Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a nice Monday late winter evening. Appearance is a pale yellow with a robust white head. Aroma mostly of lager yeast. Taste goes down nice and crisp with a yeasty profile. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 Urban Chestnut’s Zwickel tastes like it arrived straight from Germany. Bread-like lager yeast, sweet grains, and lingering corn in the finish. Light-bodied feel with plenty of carbonation. Not hugely complex, but enjoyable and true to the style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Corn, grains, lemon.
A- Gold color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Corn, grains, slightly sweet.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, boring finish.
O- Pretty bland. I just think I really don’t like the style. Might as well have been a PBR.

Can at Revolution.
Golden with a white head. On the sweet side with grain, grass, bread and some light hops. Drinkable but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber. Medium low head. Yeasty aroma. Taste is a hint off sweet honey, a little grain and grassy hops which gets stronger towards the end. Taste stays an appropiate long enough time. Palate is thin which fits the style very well. Nice,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very clear pour for a zwickel. Other than that, no complaints. Delicious. Light and fruity. Like Froot Loops. Light and crushable. Loved it.

On tap @Birre sotto l’albero, Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma is malty, bread crust, honey, herbal notes, grass. Flavour is medium sweet with a decent bitter end. Medium to light body, light carbonation. A bit shy, I expected more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of grassy dry hops, dry bready yeast, and grainy malt. Taste of lager yeast, stale honey grain bread, with a strong hop bitterness. Very similar to some German/ European Lagers I’ve had.

Bottle by Beerhunter111. Lightly hazy yellow colour. Slightly honeyish and lemony flavour. Rather thin bodied, easy drinking. Refreshing. Good.
