Saeglopur (2007) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 11, 2017
2 litre growler from the brewery shop, bb April 7 2017.
Golden, hazy body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of flowers, hay, grains, bread, some sweet fruits, some biscuit, even slight vanilla.
Very smooth taste, with quite similar aromas, but with more of the smooth bread and biscuity sweetness, a subtle hop bitterness and a slight dryness.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes smooth, bready, floral, hoppy, a bit sweet, a bit dry.

Wow, this is the perfect Zwickl! Never had another style example before, with such a depth and smoothness. The balance is outstanding, sweet, hoppy and bready notes in perfect harmony. And this is so quaffable, it shouldnt be difficult to empty the growler on my own I guess. Maybe Im crazy giving such a high score for a pale 5% ABV Lager beer, but I dont care, this is perfection in its category, cant imagine a better style example!

Ritzn (1172) - GERMANY - DEC 14, 2016
Hazy yellow with medium white head. Aroma is some green stuff, grass, citrus, a little grainy hops. Taste is well rouded fresh citric sourness with some fruity sweetness. Slightly sparkly mouthfeel, but with little bubbles. Still easy to drink. Some uncanny citrus pips in the finish, which I dont like that much. Still decent.

SinH4 (4437) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 Growler from the brewery, many thanks jonas! Hazy yellow color with big frothy white head. Aroma is citrusy, a bit apples, bready malts, juicy, some yeasts. Taste is juicy citrusy, grassy, biscuity, some honey, bready, incredibly balanced and lecker. Low natural carbonation, chewy mouthfeel. Similar to the Jahrhundert from the Holzfass - they?re both masterfully crafted. A beautiful and unpretentious beer. Jonas says this was more sulphuric a few hours ago.

Tap from the tank at the Zwicklbiertag. More milky, sulphuric, green than the growler version. But excellent!

pivnizub (10456) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2017 Growler(2000ml, freshly filled at the brewery): Pale greenish-golden, hazy, big loose and rocky head, freshly mowed grass, hay, pale malt and traces of bisquits in the nose; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and very soft; lingering grassy-hayish finish with solid malty counterpart. Delicious and very moreish Growler ( filled 1/17): Great: The hayish and slightly piney hops do harmonize very well with the malty and a bit yeasty finish. Absolutely moreish...
