DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2012
Swingtop; a self-pourer. These bottled Zwickls are feisty little chaps- have a glass at the ready. Orange hazy with an uneven, climbing white head. Mixed-up, yeasty aroma; slightly vegetal, thistle-like with fresh sappy hop over a warm malty base of peanut butter on toast. Even some lemon rind and banana. Champagne-like, airy, effervescent with more of that fine, sappy, earthy hop character mingling with sesame and toasty malts. Carbonated to the point of fizziness but wickedly easy to knock back once it’s stoppped foaming. An education. And quite unlike any beer I’ve ever had. Except the zwickl I had the other night.

Bottle from Vineyard, Belfast Mid-amber blonde with fluffy white head. Sweet malt and spicy yeast esters on the nose. Fairly soft mouthfeel with medium carbonation, some clove spiciness and a touch of banana in the finish

Grzesiek79 (4030) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Dobre choc moze nie rewelacyjne, fajna zlota lekko metna barwa. Ekologiczne jakby piwo wyraznie zbozowy smak i nawet z cytrusowa nuta, obecna takze w aromacie. Niewoelka biala piana srednio trwala. Krachla mocno strzelila uszedl dymek ale wysycenie jednak podczas nalewania niewielkie.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2012
It’s slightly hazy darkish golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, grain, flower, light yeast, and a little parrot feathers (thats a compliment). The moderately sweet flavor has notes of malt, grain, flower, light bread and yeast, and the finish is slightly dry.

stevoj (4018) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2012
half liter flip top bottle poured into glass mug, thick, fluffy head stays with the beer for a while. This unfiltered bier has a hazy deep golden color. Smooth, mellow flavor, leaving a slight sharp note on the tongue. Not as dark and musty as some of the zwickls I’ve tried, but overall a pretty nice beer.

bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2006
Blonde, cloudy. Swing top bottle. Citrus in the aroma. Earthy hoppy flavor with honey and citrus. Some sweetish citric flavors dominate the aftertaste. Quite likeable, this beer.

500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Is a cloudy gold color with a large bright-white head. Aroma is fruity sweet malt. Taste is sweet grassy malt. Palate is very bubbley and crisp. Good beer.

Holy (837) - GERMANY - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Bierkrug - as always, thanks! This beer is pretty tasty, but I didn’t know what a Zwickl was before looking it up on Urban Dictionary:
A. To steal something in a rude manner.
B. To be exceptionally awkward.
C. Someone who is kind of a huge bitch.
Thanks Urban dictionary!

Bamberg Bash, Day 1. Train bottle swig. Light haze on this gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and softish. Soft and slightly sweet pale malt. Light floralness and a suggestion of something fruity. Dry finish with a touch of spice.
