4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewpub, served in a real German steinkrug. Looks to be dark golden colored with just a little bit of head. But this beer brings me right back to the German countryside. Bready malt with a neat bitter finish, I long for a pretzel or brat and brotchen. May not impress those look for audacity, but this is solid classic beer and my favorite of the day.

Draft at the brewery. This is hazy and golden. A lemon grass and bready aroma. Some grain is tasted with gentle hops with light fruit and flowers. There is a hint of spice. This is subtle and tasty. I love the low ABV.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Hazy, milky golden colour with huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy aroma with protein accentuation, yeasty and minimally doughy, thereby fresh and airy. Taste is dry, grainy, husky, protein notes, a touch of lemon. A Zwickel as it shall be, reverence evinced.
