Formerly Ottakringer Zwickl Rot.
Wer nach einem ganz besonderen Geschmackserlebnis sucht, hat es mit dem roten Zwickl gefunden. Durch ein spezielles, sehr aufwändiges Mälzungsverfahren erhält es seine typisch rötliche Färbung – und den unverwechselbar schokoladigen und karamelligen Geschmack. Bernsteinfarben, naturtrüb und einzigartig – eine verführerisch-mutige Bierinnovation, die man gekostet haben sollte! 12.2°

Translated with Google translator (from German to English) This is my favorite beer! It is unique! Both its color and its taste. It tastes full-bodied, tasty and refreshing.

kraddel (8145) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2016
Pours unclear amber, small white head. Smell is bit bitter, some aromatic ambermalts. Taste is intense aromatic malts, very clear and natural. Light bitter. Very Nice, actually.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 From tap. Dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt with some grains. Medium body with medium sweetness and light bitterness. The taste is malty with caramel, ripe apples and pears and some coffee.

Very nice and refreshing zwickel with a dark amber color. Some tarty sweetness in the body with refreshing hops in the crispy finish.

On tap at Vienna’s Euro 2016 fanfest @ Rathaus. Presents hazy copper-brown with a decent off-white head. Nose and taste is smooth toasty sweet malts with a light grassy dry hop bitterness. Nice clean palate.

EAGLE82 (235) - Röslau, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2016
Really nice beer. Next to no aroma but it looks great and the taste is really smooth but still nice hoppy and full.

0,5 Litter, Draft, Bunkerei Vienna. Malt and honey aroma. Amber to red color with nice creamy head. Again malty and sweet taste leaving some bitter taste at the end. Nice refreshing beer.

Moretum (167) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - APR 9, 2016
On Tap at Plachutta, Vienna. Hazy, brown colour with a nice head. Yeasty aroma with malts. Taste is malt and yeast with some hops. Seems to be a refreshing, easy drinking beer with no highlights, but a clear structure.

adamnowek (2723) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2015
Cloudy reddish brown with a head that looks like vanilla ice cream. Toasted malts with a slight sourness on the finish.

Werckmeister (3184) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 28, 2015
Shared at Ottakringer Shop by Cuso & Gurthnar, thanks. 0,2l from tap shared by 3. Amber hazy color, small off-white head. Strong smell of yeast and bread. Medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes of bread, yeast, malts. Finishes with bread and yeast. Decent enough, overall not too interesting..
