Meister Festbier
Bottle. Dark amber color with tan head. Aroma is burnt butter, fruity. Taste is lots of butter, butterscotch, some maltiness, some almond cake, popcorn. Natural carbonation. Quite a diac bomb, but also fun to drink - and it’s very interesting!

Ruby with little white head. Aroma is malty dough, nuts, roast, slight chalk. Taste is sweet malty body with a good roasty bitter counterpart. Smooth and very pleasant, rather more bubbly, mouthfeel, finish of more roast and less sweetness. Drinkable but not watery. Nothing wrong with this one.

0,5 l bottle out the the last big box from kapppldav123 so far as I remember. Dark amber in the glass, nearly clear with a big frothy light beige head. Looks really good. Decent malt on the nose. Taste starts roasted malty, low sweetness, grain, bready and low but present bitterness. Highly recommended!

Aroma; toffee, malts, honey, sweetbutter, faint mild hops. Look; deep clear amber body, fawn bighead, very inviting. Taste; sweet malts, toffee, honey, sweet butter, grass, hops, sweet barley syrup backbone - smooth malted finish, some hops popping up. Foam tastes lots of minerals and hops. Feel; normal body, near flat fizz. Overall; good vollbier, some carbonation may improve it. [50cl.btl 4.9% BB/14/9/(2016)]

Meister Vollbier
From draft at the brewery. Crystal clear copper-amber with a lasting off-white head. Quiet aroma is malty in the way of graham cracker and toasted cereals with quiet floral hoppiness. It’s lightly yeasty and minerallic with subtle off-notes of grain husks and paper. There’s a small bit of toffee and pipe tobacco in the nose as well, it’s the most interesting aspect of the beer, but unfortunately it’s pretty dull. Medium-light bodied, malty, sweet, lightly bitter and acidic. Carbonation and malt texture are both a little rough and edgy, and the body is watery and the finish is quick. No major defects, just bland expression and watery / flabby body.

Bottle, pours brown with a Fast-settling head and a fruity caramel nose. Crisp, malty and bittersweet, if I didn’t know what this was it could easily be a sweetish Southern English brown bitter.

This is a no nonsense Vollbier which is very drinkable. Though simple in its flavour spectrum, it does what it presents very well. A distinct flavour and drinkability, what more can one want?

3.5
Meister Zwickl-Bier
Nice malty, tangy quaffer with enough bitterness to be serious. Bottle. Amber brown and rather clear, suspect light filtering before bottling. Sticky grayish lace. Fruity light caramel nose, mild toast, with notes of sweet tomato sauce and tart cherry, and earth. Light caramel sweetness more than balanced by firm bitterness and slight acidic tang, bit of mineral, trailing into light lingering resinous bitter aftertaste, dry finish. Would have another if I were there.

0,5 l bottle from P&M Getränke, best before 7/6/2015. Slightly hazy, amber with a huge, creamy and very fine pored, stable, tan head. Aroma of toffee, nuts and grains. Sweetish taste of toffee, nuts and grains. Short, pleasant bitter finish with shy metallic hints. Thin to medium body, smooth mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very solid beer with great appearance and pleasant but not very exciting taste and aroma.

Meister Zwickl-Bier
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Ambrata scarica, abbastanza limpida, schiuma abbondante, discretamente persistente. Al naso sentori di pane, latte, biscotto, lieviti, stalla. In bocca è magnifica, un succo di pane liquido, magnificamente equilibrata, si beve facile ma ha anche tanta "sostanza", appaga ma non sazia. Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Ottima Zwickel.

So meisterlich ist es gar nicht mal. Schön trocken mit grasigen Anklängen, dazu ein wenig Hopfen und ein frischer Abgang, Nicht Herausragendes, wenn auch sehr solide in seinen Eigenschaften.

Meister Vollbier
My Bottom Line:
Delicate nutty caramel and herbal hop bitterness get along nicely in this dry and süffig lager.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the misty auburn.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-This is clearly in the same flavor family as their neighbor Penning-Zeisler’s Vollbier.
-Drinkability is through the roof.

On tap at the brewpub.

Mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of bread crusts, caramel, traces of (wal-)nuts and a mildly herbal-spicy hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Nutty toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, bread and herbal hops; dry-ish toast-malty finish with a spicy hop dosage. Very balanced and rounded Franconian Lager. 20.IX.14

Meister Vollbier
Bottle. Brite, amber. Delicate carbonation. Persistent one-finger head that laces nicely. Very enticing. Don’t drink too quickly as aroma really opens up as approaches room temperature, revealing sweet fruits and later a little roastiness. Mineral sensation in the mouth. Pleasant soft bitter linger. Could drink till the cows came home.

Flasche (50 cl) als "Zwickl-Bier" von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Dunkles Goldbraun, trüb. - In der Nase schöne Karamelsüße mit hintergründiger Frucht und etwas pfeffriger fränkischer Hopfen. - Im Antrunk ebenfalls aromatisch karamelsüß aber nicht dick, fein ausbalanciert durch zarte fruchtige Schärfe und würzigen fränkischen Hopfen. Münchner Malz mit kräftiger Brotkruste. Gut rezent, vollmundig, mild hefig. Im Abgang nicht zu schwacher, würzig-pfeffriger Hopfen und Mokka. Ausreichend bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schönes dunkles Zwickel mit der klassisch fränkischen Kombination von sehr guten Malzaromen und würzigem Hopfen. Sehr empfehlenswert. Darf auf keinen Fall zu kalt getrunken werden, sonst kommen die Aromen nicht recht zur Geltung. Leider scheint die Qualität größeren Schwankungen zu unterliegen: zwei andere Flaschen schmeckten unharmonisch schroff.

Feinmalzig mit brotigem Abgang und einer leichten Süße. Etwas dick, aber dennoch süffig und leicht trinkbar. Keine Rakete, aber solide und feine Wertarbeit.
