3.81/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Honey amber with lots of trailers of bubbles and shaving cream froth that rims.
Fresh dark honey with some bread dough and butterscotch.
Lots of toasty malts, a touch of yellow apple, a bit of caramel, a bready yeast hit and earth and spicy hops.
Caraway finish and cut hay linger.
Light, round, crisp.

First Zwickel. This threw me at first because this seems to strip out everything interesting about Keller and leave a toasty O'fest-type beer. As you get into it, though, you get the same balanced, even bitterness, and easy drinking as in a solid English session bitter.

Missing the depth of character I look for from an unfiltered lager, but has a thing of its own going on.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Zwick'l pours a rich oaky tan color with a medium head of barely off white froth

The nose is fantastic with nice biscuity malt and just a hint of grass with some background molasses

This beer gives me a fresh bread taste with slight tropical citrus fruit notes and a mild malty finish with a hint of honey

The is a mild effervescence that lingers a bit on the palate but all in all this goes down easy and is a smooth drinking sessionable brew

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a Fremont pint glass. Pours a rich medium to dark coppery amber with a two finger white head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of biscuity, slightly toasted malt, hint of wheat and mild grassy hops. Flavor is slightly sweet biscuit, lightly bready malt and light grassy hops, nicely integrated. Medium bodied with nice peppery carbonation. Light flavored, but really pleasant malt profile and a deft amount of grassy hops. Lingering semi-sweet malt and hops finish. This was very enjoyable and could win me ovre to the idea of session beers. This would be quite nice to sit and sip for a long period of time on a warm day. There is a hint of oxidation in this, which is apparently why this style is rarely exported, meant to be drunk fresh. This was still very enjoyable and makes me want to try a fresh one.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass

Best before: 18/12/2014

A: Has a brownish amber colour, a small head which disappears quickly. Shows little carbonation

S: Can't smell much more than roasted malt

T: Tastes of malt and has a little bitterness with it

F: It is very light in body and the carbonation stays on the tongue for quite some time

O: It is SO awesomely drinkable. I really enjoy it. It definitely compares to a lager but it is much more malty and tasteful. I'll go and get a caste tomorrow!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

500ml bottle. Fluted mug. Deep brass color, veiled apperance. Off-white froth creates a close, thick & lasting head. Sweet maltiness, hints of honey & Noble hops to the nose. Sweet malts & floral hoppiness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate to high carbonation. Dense to watery texture. Sweet sensation is kept by green fruit & floral slight flavors just at the edge of cloyiness. Sweet finish. Herbal & floral infusion on the aftertaste.
