Great zwikel, it has been clarifying in time but still a great beer, optimal balance between the hop character and the malts, more sweet than bitter but not too sweet. A really nice session beer always perfectly brewed.

hauxe (552) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2016
Pours gold from the bottle with a light haze. The head fizzes and dissappears amid much evident carbonation. Smell is rotted, moldy mushroom, light skunk, and sour too. Frankly, were not off to a good start here. The taste though is mellow and sweet with a lightly peppery aspect. Finish leaves me feeling like Ive downed a swig of hard, well carbonated, mineral water. Drinking it, I got a headache. Hmm, it is cheap, and its a geat burping beer. I could see this leading to some wicked hangovers. No more, please.

Ritzn (981) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Hazy golden with medium white head. Aroma is soap water, wheat, some sour dust. Taste is a surpsrisingly smooth design of a fresh and lemon-y sourness paired with some rather earthy and slightly malty bitterness that extends into the finish. Medium carbonation with smooth light mouthfeel. Texture reminds of flour. Enjoyable if you put a clothes-peg over your nose first.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
330ml bottle. Milky, yellow-ish golden colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, white head. Malty aroma with a spicy touch of hay, some protein, hints of green apple, a lemon dash. Taste is biscuity malty, dry and minimally fruity hoppy overtones with hints green apples and their parings. Decent.

RexTalionis (3642) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Notes of bready malts, some grass and hints of yeasty spicyness in aroma. Bittersweet taste with some grass and malts. Fruity sweetness in aftertaste.

oh6gdx (25965) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottled (from Bier Zwerg). Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is herbal, fruity, some bready malts and also rather sweetish malty notes. Flavour is bready, sweet malts, some slight grass, hay and mild floral notes. Easy to drink, and not all too special, but still gives a nice long bitterness in the finish. A bit mouthdrying as for the palate.

bartlebier (3719) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2015
33cl pull-cab bottle bb07/2015, Karstadt Mchner Freiheit. Assertive sweet yellow apple and slightly sour-sulphurish apple peel in the nose. Returns in taste on mild almond malts, creating a sensation of thin-crusted apple-almond tarte with some hop spice and a caramelised apple crust. Decent.

mile (3888) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint bread with light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint bread and light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - grainy and lightly sweetish, faint bread and light metal with light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Not too sweet kellerbier. Sharp metal in the finish makes this one not so enjoyable.
