Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice light grain with a bit of grass and a touch of earthiness. Flavor has a lot of light grains with a nice earthy grass note underlying. Great drink ability.

500 ml bottle as Urban Chestnut Hallertauer Zwickel Hell. BB 22/01/16. Thanks to Timo A!
Cloudy pale yellow color with a tiny white head. Mild grassy hops, mild sweetness, earthy notes and malt in the aroma. The flavor is grassy hops, mild bitterness, earthy notes and malt. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Lactic barley malt and hay aroma. Hazy medium yellow with giant white head. Mildly sweet lemon barley malt and moderately bitter herbal/hay flavor. Pretty good.

Bottle... Pours clear and golden with a small, fizzy, white head. Although I’m trying really hard to pull something from the glass, I can’t smell anything here. Light to medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mostly-balanced and a touch bitter with a hint of buttery diacetyl in the otherwise crisp finish. The diacetyl actually helps here, because it doesn’t really bother me and there’s not much of anything else going on.

DocLock (10689) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft notes from Lansdale Brew Fest. Poured hazy gold with white clingy head. Nose was pale malt, hopcitrus, with a smooth flavor of the pale malt, hopcitrus, complexity from the non-filtration, and this is a definite beer you could gladly drink all day.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a fairly hazy, golden yellow appearance with a diminishing white head. Lemony, light veggie, straw, light creamed corn, a bit herbal aroma. Uh oh. Tangy, light to moderate DMS, herbal/straw, somewhat chewy malty flavor with a fairly dry finish. Off but not off in a really horrible way- maybe they can clean this up. Update: tried on tap at Urban Chestnut and the DMS is still there. Goddammit, I really wanted this to be good.

pivnizub (10619) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2015
Euro2-Flasche: Golden, hazy to cloudy, mid-sized lacy off-white head; spicy herbal-hoppy nose with a piney touch, some fruity yeast in the background; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied, pretty soft; slightly lingering bitter-hoppy finish with a certain yeasty fruitiness. Nice brew…

BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2015
Tap. Clear gold-yellow pour with a small white head. Hay, grain, grass. Really good for the style.

50 cl bottle. BBE 22.01.2016.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Grassy aroma, pale malts, some mild fruity notes and subtle hops. Grassy and malty flavor, some subtle grain notes, hay and earth. Quite boring.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Draft at the brewpub served in one of their steins (Wasandis is also served in this), so I didn’t get a great look at the color looked like a slightly cloudy yellow-gold, and there was an uneven white head. Aroma of grassy hops, straw, butter, bready and pale malts, and yeast. Flavor followed suit for the most part, getting sweeter, maltier, and more buttery as it went down and warmed. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a grainy, malty mouthfeel. Don’t know a whole lot about this style but it was nice and easy to drink. RE-RATE: Had it again at The Royale. This is still not a style I know much about but this is a great, sessionable beer. I’d like to try more Z/K/Ls for comparison because I don’t think they’d beat this.
