dr_rauhbein (5) - GERMANY - JAN 29, 2015 does not count
A really nice Zwickel with a lot of yeast and a great head. Fresh taste, hints of citrus and grass, much better from tap than bottle. The best beer from Saarland, drinkable to the bitter end!

Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 23, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Saarlander. It pours a murky yellow beer with a tall nicely remaining lacing white head. Murkier and paler appearance than expected. Lovely hops, baguette, sweat, hop resin and yeast in the nose which is really inviting. Coconut and strawberry showing up in the taste. Yeast accented. Strong bitterness. Long dry hoppy finish which is reminiscent of coconut and baguette. Excellent and underrated in my opinion. Thanks a lot Aaron!

500 ml bottle in Germany. Pours a nice golden color with white forming stands through out. Aroma is a true pleasure a full floral and citrus spectrum. Taste is much like an unfilltered Pils., however very mellow. Palate is weak but Pils like. Overall a very nice Zwickel, which is a little understood beer.

marcusm (56) - Remich, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 18, 2005
A bottled sample, aroma of spritzy Saaz hops, a head lasting to the end of the glass - just off white. On the mouth, slightly murky gold colour, as you would expect from a naturally produced beer. Well, it starts off with the hops biting the tongue, sliding down the palate, forming creamy malty notes, filing the tongue with flavour, ending with a note of hoppy cream soda in the mouth. A lucious beer, worth seeking out. I buy this by the case close to a micro in Germany - no question, need beer, buy some here - visit the micro too (Abteibrau in Metlach)

darkseduction (741) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Nice cloudy golden brew, appetising appearence. Small white head. Lively carbonisation, fresh and floral lightness, in the aftertaste a elaborated maltiness. Hoppy notes underline the satisfying impression.

Christos (5692) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2014
(Bruch Zwickel) Stubby bottle at home, from trade with vipinvelp, thanks! Served into an english pint glass, ABV 4.8% Golden yellow colour on the body, huge thick white head, with great retention, helped by its size, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Nice activity in the glass. Aroma of barley, fresh grass, light yeast even, nice citrusy touches. Nice taste, light grains but without becoming offensive, bread, hay, again some light citrus that fades as the beer warms up. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Quite good, certainly drinkable.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2015
[email protected]’s No 1, Saarbrücken. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is herbal, mild spelt and wheat like notes as well as some yeasty and earthy notes. Flavour is earthy, herbal grassy, grainy and a bit bready malts to it. Very refreshing on a hot day.

shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle. Hay malt aroma. Clear golden yellow color with tufts of cloudiness - nice head and lacing. Grass malt flavor - mild bitter finish. An above average bottled zwickel.
