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°

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy brown with a small amber glare and a creamy, thick and slight tan head. Aroma is breadish and roasted malt. Toffee dry malt flavoured - towards bread. Subdued bitterness mixing in with the dark roasted malt. Ends with a mild fruity note to a dark malt base. Light bitterness coming through.

KyotoLefty (10726) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2010
Draught at the Schweizerhaus, Prater, Vienna, where they called it "Rotes Zwickl." I am not really sure just what style of beer this is aiming for. It is reddish-brown in color, very cloudy. Has a rich, malty, fruity, and quite sour flavor that even resembles a Flemish ale slightly. It has a slightly sour, yeasty aroma as well. This was very nice stuff, interesting and original, and more complex than their others beers.

draught at Prilisauer Wien. Hazy amber-golden colour, creamy white head. Malty with caramel and a nice hoppy touch, also hints of a yeasty fruitiness.
