COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schwechater Zwickl passt besonders gut zu cremigen Erdäpfelpürees serviert mit Kalbsbutterschnitzel oder aber auch zu schärferen Gerichten wie Chili con Carne. Zu empfehlen ist es auch zu bunten Salaten mit gebratenen Putenstreifen. Milde Käse harmonieren ebenfalls mit dem prämierten Zwickl. 12.5°

16erBlech (524) - 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

Demens (440) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2017
0,5l bottle. Very thick, hazy hay-yellow colour with small but lasting white head. Aroma: Very fresh grassy/hay tones with hiding honey/citrus and soft bready notes. Taste: Has a fresh malty start with a moderat but overwhelming bitter mouthfeel. One of the most creamiest bodied beer I ever tasted. Light body (but not weak) with a medium carbonation. Long lasting, pleasent bitter finish with softly acidic caracter. Very refreshing unfiltered lager, a pleasure to drink.

Veľmi príjemné pivo. Krásna jemne ovocná vôňa. Chuť ľahká s banánovou dochuťou. Vždy si rád dám toto pivo.

KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Tasted from the bottle in August 2006, Wien. Light yellow color, extremely cloudy. Tall, fine head. Extremely strong lemon aroma. Sour, with just a touch of sweetness. Very aromatic. Somewhat like a lambic in its nose. Sour flavor, with lemon and spice. Good malt, but little sweetness. Good hops, but it is ruled by a refreshing, sour flavor. Very drinkable; fantastic. Dry, sour, hoppy finish, long lasting. Maybe the best bottled Austrian beer I have tried, certainly the most interesting and original.

ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Draft in Vienna on 09 June 2011. Cloudy/dense golden with a lovely creamy white, lacing/Orval head. Nose is yeasty, medium citrus, light grass and hay. Very inviting. Lovely yeasty/doughy taste. Lightly bitter, lightly sour/citrusy, but man that dough/yeast is a lovey, creamy-textured wave of joy. Full buy extremely soft and creamy body. On this day, just really perfect for this moment. Lässt erfrischen!
