luttonm (6271) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Can in Seattle. A pretty solid zwickle here. A bit sweet and sour edged lager nose. Relatively crisp zwickle character. A touch creamy and "weak". But a nice, dry and bitter lager for the summer. Tasty.

BuckeyeBoy (7663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 14, 2017
12oz can pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is grassy hops a bread malt and some sweetness. Taste is more of light grassy notes a touch of pine bitterness and a mellow malt end.

Bronze, touch of haze, yeasty nose, has a malty overall character, chewy Munich malts, just enough bitterness. Good example.

Can shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours clear golden with a thick fluffy white head. Aromas of cooked corn and green beans. Taste is more corn, light bitter lemon. Clean finish, if a little bit thin.

Capa (3295) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Clear golden with a large white head. Citrus and toasted malts with some earth, too. Medium bodied. Flavor is full of earthy hops with light sweet toasted malts, too. Sharp. Very nicely done. A fantastic summer refresher. Much better than originally expected.

RichTheVillan (7835) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Can from Cotteridge Wines; clear amber pour with a big frothy off white head, aroma has some bready malts with a hint of hop, taste has some grainy malts, tiny hint of citrus.

12 oz can poured, left over from Eugene’s Memorial Day party. Still quite fresh. Thanks for the can! This seemed like a fitting choice to start today off. It’s not quite 11 am, and it’s already 80° out. Traveling to Florida this week, but it’s plenty hot up here in the PNW. The sun on this can sums out this weekend for sure. Hazy golden pour with a loose bubble head. Pleasant grain aroma. Flavor is a touch of sweet, but mostly a light refreshing beer to drink outside. This beer is a good indicator that summer more or less began this weekend. Try to say Ziggy Zoggy Zwickel five times fast. If you can do it, I’ll buy you one. Overall, this was delicious.

12oz can, dated 138th day of 2016, which is May 17th, so very fresh. I bought this only because I realized its a zwickel, who would of guessed. Also, I was having a Memorial Day party, so a sixer at $8 for a fresh unfiltered lager is indeed a worthy purchase. Clear, dim golden color. Clean beer, a little malt sweetness but very earthy unfiltered lager with light noble hoppiness. Surprisingly well done beer.
