COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Das Sechzehnzwölfer (1612er) ist das Bier aus der guten alten Zeit. Ein naturtrübes, vitaminreiches Export Hell, frisch aus den kühlen und dunklen Tiefen des Lagerkellers. So wie zu Urgroßvaters Zeiten die Bierfässer unfiltriert vom Braumeister "gezwickelt” wurden. Nach Beendigung des Brauvorgangs öffnete der Braumeister mit einer Zwickelmünze (heute 2 DM) einen kleinen Hahn am Lagerfaß und verkostete das unfiltrierte Zwickelbier.

Traunstein 1612 zwickbier Pour me another. Fine tasting. Lite as feather but very tasteful. A lot of sweet yeast flavor. This is great. Not sure how accessible it is but this represents a pretty cool and tasty style. Need a good version of this local.
