(Flasche) Es hat eine bronzene Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süßlich, karamellig und leicht oxidiert. Der Geschmack ist eher schlank, etwas Karamell, etwas Spelzen, leicht bitter und leicht metallisch.

TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2017
The smell of bread, light sour. The small white fizzy head disappears fast, the body is red. A light sweet taste, the finish is bitter. The body is light to medium strong, creamy and with a soft oily touch and a lively carbonation.

Idiosynkrasie (7096) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2017
330ml bottle. Cloudy, amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, bready malty aroma, hints of caramel, a doughy, yeasty touch. Taste is minimally strawy, bready malty, a touch of caramel. Uninspired.

L: -pours a hazy amber with a medium to big,foamy,offwhite head -medium to high carbonation visible S: -caramel,plums,raisins,strawberries,r spicy,cinnamon,roast -finishes dry -medium bitterniss for the style F: -medium carbonation -light to medium body O: Almost more Altbier than Zwickl, but a pretty good session Lager. This is underrated (Macro Baggage?).

jonas (7238) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle. Pretty orange clouds, golden creamy head. Light grassy fruity nose. Light body, a bit fruit a hint hop aromatics, metallic tinny finish. Lacks conviction.

Christos (5364) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2016
(Th. König Brauwerke Zwickl) Stubby bottle 330ml at home, served into a dimpled mug, ABV 5.3% Deep red to light brown colour on the body, mostly clear, with a good sized, thick white head on top, average retention. The aroma has faint citrus, earthy notes, a little bit of caramel, straw, orange. Taste follows, a bit of citrus and orange, earthy notes, iron, straw. Thin body, carbonation could be a bit higher but on good levels. Pretty good.

Grumpelmies (177) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle. Dark orange. Nice head. Aroma and taste are rather subdued. Malty, fruity, sweet and a touch of honey. Nearly no bitterness. Ok and very drinkable. But the labeling and marketing is downright silly and despicable.
