3.6/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A. Straw color, white 1 finger head with a ton of carbonation bubbles. Very slight cloudiness.

S. Classic lager aroma - bread, cracker, straw, yeast, a little lemon.

T. Nose carries over fairly well to the palate - bready malt, cracker and a kiss of lemony hops on the finish.

M. More creaminess than expected with lower carbonation than expected.

O. Decent enough stuff but not one of NG's better lagers. Actually glad I only grabbed a single and not a 6-pack.

3.39/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear bright yellow color. Forms a moderate sized white head. Retention is okay as the beer eventually falls to a slight surface coating. Minimal lacing.

S: Aroma smells of creamed corn, light generic hops, and a mild fruitiness.

T: Taste is mild. There is a bit of graininess and a bit of corn. Mildly sweet. There is a slight yeast quality to the beer, but not as much as you'd expect for a Zwickel (though, the beer is just listed as a "lager" on the bottle). Some lighter noble hops and a slight spiciness on the back end.

M: Lighter bodied. Medium carbonation. Minimal bitterness. Mild spicy quality.

O: While this beer is "clean," it's almost as if it is too clean for the style. The label says it is unfiltered, but its damn near crystal clear. This is just not a very exciting beer for me. I personally couldn't even say this would make a decent everyday drinker as I just wouldn't want to drink it regularly.
