On tap at the source. Mildly hazy golden color with a one-finger white head. Scant lacing in the glass. Nice aroma of grainy sweet malt and lemony, floral notes. Really crisp and clean taste with slightly sweet grain, citrus notes and some floral notes. Light to medium bodied and clean on the finish. Nice.

Golden in color, slightly hazy but mostly clear. Ample bright white foam on pour, which recedes to a thick ring around the edge and persistent layer across the top. Lacing is minimal. Aroma is quite nice, moderate maltiness. Bready. Mild noble hop aroma. The taste is malty, bready, and clean. A mild spicy, earthiness from the hops. Extremely well balanced. Medium light body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish. Slightly creamy. An excellent zwickel.

Tasted in a pint glass from draught at Firkin on April 19, 2017. A well made Zwickelbier. Recommended.
