Schwechater Zwickl passt besonders gut zu cremigen Erdpfelprees serviert mit Kalbsbutterschnitzel oder aber auch zu schrferen Gerichten wie Chili con Carne. Zu empfehlen ist es auch zu bunten Salaten mit gebratenen Putenstreifen. Milde Kse harmonieren ebenfalls mit dem prmierten Zwickl. 12.5

Saeglopur (2024) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 12, 2015
500 ml, bottled 22.04.2015, from a supermarket.
Pale yellow, cloudy body, with a big, frothy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of hay, flowers, grass, bread, some sweet malts.
Tastes of bread, flowers, grass, grains, citrus, sweet malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, grainy, citric, hoppy, yeasty.

Very nice. Enjoyable floral, bready notes and quite a lot of citric hops. The taste isnt fully on par with the really nice nose though. Overall one of my favourite Zwickels from Austria.

16erBlech (505) - Burgenland, AUSTRIA - AUG 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2017 0,5l bottle. Its funny that Schwechater brews such a good Zwickl, cause their main beer is just average. Refreshing bitterness, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

inbirraveritas (1552) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 28, 2014
Bottled, 0.5 l. Hazy yellow one with a creamy and lasting white head on its top. Fresh grassy nose. Tasteing starts crisp followed by a somewhat clean aroma containing honey, bread, lemon and grassy hops, mouthfeel is slick and moderate thin. Dry, hoppy-breadcrusty-lemony finish. Aside from its cleaned mass touch, overall not bad...

HerrBierkoenig (1382) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 27, 2014
From 0,5l bottle. Many thanks to Martin M. BBD: 19.07.2014. Pours: Interesting deep cloudy straw yellow to khaki liquid (reminds me freshly fermented grape juice - before sedimentation - "burčk"). Nice medium frothy white head. Aroma: yeasty, malty, citrus- lemon, dust. Taste: light sweat, light bitter, light sour. Yeast, dust, lemon, perhaps minor banana?. Palate: Medium body, creamy to sticky texture, average carbonation, medium long bitter finish. Overall: interesting (appearance and aroma), the taste was bit poor and abrupt. Nevertheless, for Heineken owned brewery quiet good.
