3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits beer tasting on 04/03/2014: The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Toasted malt, spiced fruit and yeast in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, citrus and earthy yeast. The finish is grainy malt and subtle banana. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. lightly hazed golden body and white head. sourish and sweet lemon, wheat, bread dough, spice / herbs, etc., but all with noticeable cooked corn DMS, very sulfuric, fizzy, acidic, etc. nice to see them try a zwickl, and you can tell they’re getting the foundation close, but the off-flavors and aromas are difficult to take.

Euro2-bottle from Bierpost. Hazy deep golden with a persistent white head. Dry hoppy nose. Light-bodied, good malty start with a nice yeasty-fruity touch and some dry, slightly dusty and also slightly resiny herbal hops in the finish. Good beer and true to the style.

Which I could sit down with a session of this. Where it stands it is a good lager and one of the few in the style in the US.

Draft notes from Lansdale Brew Fest. Poured hazy gold with white clingy head. Nose was pale malt, hopcitrus, with a smooth flavor of the pale malt, hopcitrus, complexity from the non-filtration, and this is a definite beer you could gladly drink all day.

Taster at Upland Sourfest. From a bottle. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Wow. Awesome clean bready aroma, very satisfying. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Awesome change of pace from the 100 sours today. Good mild bitter, moderate sweet. Badass Zwickel. Want to session this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice light grain with a bit of grass and a touch of earthiness. Flavor has a lot of light grains with a nice earthy grass note underlying. Great drink ability.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Draft at the brewpub served in one of their steins (Wasandis is also served in this), so I didn’t get a great look at the color looked like a slightly cloudy yellow-gold, and there was an uneven white head. Aroma of grassy hops, straw, butter, bready and pale malts, and yeast. Flavor followed suit for the most part, getting sweeter, maltier, and more buttery as it went down and warmed. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a grainy, malty mouthfeel. Don’t know a whole lot about this style but it was nice and easy to drink. RE-RATE: Had it again at The Royale. This is still not a style I know much about but this is a great, sessionable beer. I’d like to try more Z/K/Ls for comparison because I don’t think they’d beat this.
