Die Erfahrung aus mehr als 300 Jahren Zwettler Braukultur steckt in diesem böhmischen Pilsbiertyp. Nach klassischer Art aus besten Zutaten der Zwettler Biernatur gebraut, ist es von kräftigem Hopfenaroma, lebhaftem Mousseux und umfassender Präsenz am Gaumen geprägt. Die feinen Malznoten verleihen dem Zwettler Original bemerkenswerte Eleganz.

Bottle from a Billa in Vienna. Pours gold with a transient white head. Mild aromas of bread and fruity/grassy hop. Med body or nearly. Tastes like a pils. Grassy and decently bitter. Probably underrated.

Mad_Ferret (977) - SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear pale golden with a nice puffy white head that lace. Aroma starts ok with sweet corn, white bread, citrus, grass and hop extract. But soon turns bad with cooked vegetables and some sulphur. Taste is slight sweet with corn, white bread, straw, lemon, grass and some metal at the end. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with soft tickling bubbles and smooth light texture. Too bad on the aroma. Otherwise a decent pilsener.

Very good beer. Not for beginners maybe. Nicely bitter yet not too pils-like in other areas. My favorite beer.
