Bottle; poured a murky muddy water. Aroma of caramel, bread, grass and earth. Nice German aroma. Flavor of bread and earthy grass. Nice German hop profile. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Hazy amber. Fair, wispy creamy white head, lasting with lace. Aroma is fairly sweet, honey, grass, straw, caramel. Flavor follows. Watery. Lighter medium body, moderate sweetness, slight bitterness, nicely balanced and thirst quenching. Had with afternoon snack of sharp cheddar and summer sausage on a sticky Saturday in June.

strong malt, honey, a little citrus perhaps. wet and dry at the same time. A little straw, wheat. A fairly muted taste, a little watery. However, clean and crisp. Wheat, citrus.
But I’ve never had a Zwickel before, and don’t know much about it, so I’m not sure if this is common.
A decent, very drinkable light beer though, nice for a sticky summer day. Bamsen78 (5333) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy pale golden with stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy pnset, replaced by sweetish, yeasty and malty notes. Moderately bitter finish. A decent Zwickel.
MrBeerFanatic (1052) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Pours a medium light cloudy amber. Aromas of hay, slight hint of coriander, faint hint of orange peel, faint hint of toffee, and just a light yeastiness. Flavors of slight orange peel (very faint), hay, lightly bready, slight grass. Lightly acidic. Slight soapy feel. Leaves a slight bitter/dry aftertaste. Light sweetness. Not to much that stands out in this to point it to a different "style". solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Candied malt and booze in aroma. Finishes a little sweet with average carbonation. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Not very familiar with style, but this isn’t much different from a lot of lighter German lagers Sours on long term aftertaste. Cloying texture. Bottle. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle - pour is turbid orange - lively carbonation with a well-sustained head - aroma is juicy, sweet, doughy, lightly wheaty - simple but pleasant - low carbonation - fairly creamy texture - flavor is muddled doughy yeastiness, moderate acidity, over ripe apples - finish is lightly bitter, with more lingering doughy yeast - serviceable, but kinda disappointing. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Brown bread, sweet lemony tea, barley malt aroma. Cloudy straw gold with a small white head. Sweet bready/yeasty barley malt flavor with the barest hint of hop presence in the finish. This stuff goes down very easily. beastiefan2k (3900) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2013
5L mini keg I drank with friends during my wedding. Making it simple I am just going to steal a line from mj (read more of his ratings for further detail without the whole type of glass element): a simple, sweet, yeasty German-type lager. Earthy, bready, toasty, yet a German lager yeast without off flavors. However, I enjoyed the straight forward simplicity of the beer, as well as the unfiltered aspect. Hard to find a similar product without the oxidation or skunkiness. Maybe that is why my bar is set lower.
