mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Whole Foods, Bowery 50cl ($4): Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is malty and some candy. Taste is slightly sweet. Carbonation and body are pretty correct. A slightly sugary aftertaste. Easy to drink and refreshing, but the flavour ain’t all that great.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2012
#409 Leicht trübe mit lecker viel Schaum im Glas - für ein sog. Kellerbier echt gelungen! Im Antrunk frisch und mild nach Hefe und Malz, nur etwas Hopfen - fein abgestimmt und in sich stimmig. Läßt sich gut und reichlich trinken und hinterläßt für mich bisher den besten Eindruck eines Veldensteiners - Hopfen und Malz ist hier also doch nicht verloren! Test vom 29.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,12,10,10,10 - 10,50

Gachupines (911) - USA - NOV 7, 2012
Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is very musty almost like wet oats. Flavor is a bit hoppy and effervescent with a strong musty yeast characteristic. Finish is a little sour.

motelpogo (6701) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2012
bottle, picked up at the veldensteiner stand at slunce ve skle 2012. hardly deserving of the zwickl name - just a dull golden lager with a soft texture and hints of floorboards and nettles in an aftertaste seemingly entirely devoid of bitterness

A good German beer. CO2 was throughout. I suggest drinking it when it is warmer versus cold out of the fridge.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2012
The nose is grass, spicy, some breadiness. The appearance is a drab golden brown, very hazy, white head. The flavor is grassy, noble hops, bread, spicy. The finish is noble hops, grass, spicy, light on the bitterness. Medium in body, slightly fuller actually. Interesting. A style not easy to find.

tibicinoid (26) - Wyoming, USA - SEP 17, 2012
From: Binny’s, Schaumburg, IL Date: L152C054 stamped on label Glass: Ayinger willi glass Veldensteiner’s zwick’l bier is a light version of the kellerbier tradition, with the recipe resulting in a focus on sweetness, honey-like malt, and other lighter, maltier flavors. The hops are somewhat lacking in the beer I had, either due to age or intent, it’s impossible to tell with the lack of dating. Regardless, sweetness overpowers bitterness to a semi-cloying degree. This is a beer I would not worry too much about seeking again. Pours a 2cm head of off-white bubbles, small and densely packed. Retention is above average, the head lasting several minutes as it drifts down to a thin film atop the body of the beer. Lacing is fairly generous, a few streaks and clumps along the sides of the glass. Body is an opaque burnt tan with orange-yellow highlights, light bringing out pale orange and yellow hues: a lighter-colored unfiltered lager bier. Carbonation is not visible through the opacity. Aroma is brighter, sweeter than the Kulmbacher kellerbier, emphasis here being on sweet malt syrup, honey-like sweetness, and a floral aspect. Too light, and slightly cloying, for my tastes. Whereas Kulmbacher’s kellerbier was richly of brown bread, Veldensteiner’s zwick’l is of clean white bread, malt syrup and honeyed sweetness, with some yeast and modest bittering European hops present. Aftertaste is of sweetly bread or cracker-like malts, a bit of yeast, and some residual bittering hops. Beer is medium to medium-light bodied, with low to low-medium amounts of carbonation. The mouthfeel is generally light, smooth, and slightly watery as a result. Closes out with a very dry finish.
