bottleman (14) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, - JAN 2, 2010
Der Kloster-Urtrunk, ist ein Bier mit natürlicher Haltbarkeit. Also ca. 6 Monate haltbar. Das Bier gährt noch in der Flasche, als beim aufmachen gleich ein Glas zur Hand halten. Das Bier ist naturtüb und mild im Geschmack. Die Klosterbrauerei Irsee, macht im Jahr gerade mal 20 hl Bier, mehr ist dort nicht möglich. Also immer schön langsam geniesen

tgrtnr (394) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours dirty bright brown, small head, not long lasting. Aroma is musty like it matured in a old moist cellar. Bread, grain. Mild taste, slightly sweet and even less bitter. Süffig. Soft to low carbonated. Creamy texture, full body. Nice authentical Zwickel.

let syrlig, en ille smule maltsødme. virker lidt tynd, men på den anden side er den god til en frokost.

McSherman (684) - Aachen, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2017
Helles naturtrübes Exportbier. Malziger getreidiger Körper. Leicht süß und moderat würzig. Angenehm süffig.

3.2
Zlotta (4148) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017
0.5 l bottle from ’P&M Getränke’, best before August 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, foamy, stable, white head. Sweetish, malty and slightly floral aroma of honey, caramel and hints of vanilla. Sweetish-malty, slightly floral and a little grassy taste of honey, vanilla, some caramel, traces of straw and hints of butter, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a bit grassy-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent Lager!

3.1
derA (91) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 25, 2017
bottle courtesy of SinH4, thanks a lot for tirelessly supplying me with German ZKL! Initial impression is not great, nose has some basement mold type smell. But nice mix with a lot of grain and some summer hay. Especially in the taste and aftertaste much of the grainy and barley aroma becomes apparent. The finish isn’t particularly long lasting and surprisingly sweet without any perceivable hop bitterness. Overall this doesn’t really come together for me, especially the sweet finish doesnt convince me to seek out another one.

3.3
anstei (2746) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2017
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours clear golden. Aroma is grassy hops, some buttery, sweet malts, a bit citric. Body is light, rather sweet, soft bitterness and texture. Some flowers and honey. Palate is medium and sweet. Good.
