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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Consumed very chilled. Hazy golden color with standard Co2 level, spotty lace around the edges of the glass. Aroma of Noble hops, grain and skunky lager yeast.
The flavor has a solid malt base with the Noble hops, skunky yeast and grassy notes. Ends on a mild sweetness. Straw hints. This is exactly as it would taste in Germany. A perfect example of the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Pours clear light pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has light pale malt with no hops bitterness detected. It is lightly bready and smooth. Medium smooth body with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth lager malt, very light toast and a bit of citrus. The taste seems basic, but it is very well constructed. The finish has a light bit of spicy hops and a touch of malty sweetness. This is far from being a fireworks sort of beer, but a its a great no frills beer that will be a perfect summer afternoon beer. (7/4/7/4/15 - 3.7)
Feel the need to update this since the initial rating was a sample at a fest & I’ve had it multiple times since and now in bottles. I see nothing of the original rating notes that needs to be updated, but the consistency from this beer and flavors have really grown on me. The one alteration I would make to my ratings the Hallertau hops giving more of a spicy presence to the taste. This has become a bit of a benchmark for solid lagers to me.
