This beer pours a cloudy, light bodied pale pale gold in color with an effervescent and smooth bright white head. The nose is light and pretty straight forward. It features blond German esque malt, slight hop character, and a bit of corn as well. It smells like a fresh helles. The flavors are a little more complex. The pale malt offers a slight sweetness off the bat. The bitterness is mellow and you get plenty of that German helles character with a touch of yeast, pretty spot on for a Zwickel. It drinks light in body with good carbonation. Overall this is pretty good for the style. The freshness is probably this beer's greatest strongpoint and it's hard to find this type of unfiltered lager fresh.
