Königsbacher Brauerei “Zischke”
,5L flip-top brown glass bottle coded “Mindestens haltbar bis Ende: 02.22 L13 13:19”

Look: Surprisingly both clear and light straw gold in color. The head is a short cap of dense white foam that holds very well. Hundreds of tiny bubbles can be seen racing towards the surface. Sadly, the lacing is limited.
Smell: Sweetish, doughy, and fruity with apple.
Taste: The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma suggests it will be. It’s a bit acidic, still apple-like, and stiff with bitterness. No hop flavors are found. It finishes gently acidic and mildly bitter with red apple fading steadily.
Feel: Medium bodied and gently crisp despite a clearly effervescent carbonation. Slightly astringent.
Overall: Refreshing and easily drinkable but certainly not the most well made beer out there.

appearance: The clouded limey green color really a pleasure to look at depending on your perspective. Keep s a good lacy head.

smell: Weak malty smell. Fruity hints on the edges. You really have to get your nose in there to smell it

taste: Malty subtle flavor. Not pronounce and kind of disappointing.

mouthfeel: weak but somehow filling. Makes you want more it is almost explainable

overall: Why is this brew so good. For some reason this is a great beer and I love it but it doesn't taste like much and it really isn't very filling. Its just a generally good beer. And the wife loves it.

A - pale yellow, thick white pillowy head; dissipated fairly quickly, not much lacing

S - Citrus, yeasty, sugary malts. Very faint though

T - Like the aroma, the taste is very light. pale malts, slight hints of fruity esters, bit of lemon, bready/biscuit notes, and a light floral hoppy bitter finish

M - thin, crisp, very light carbonation

O - Although very light and mainly dominated by yeasty and citrusy flavours (something I'm not normally a huge fan of), something about this beer was really enjoyable. It has such a crisp, summery feel to it that it feels like you can drink it anytime. My .5L Bügelflasche was purchased at a CenterParcs in Germany, and for a bit under 2 euros, I'd say it's quite a steal.

Appearance: Pale orange-yellow; cloudy; big head, long lasting

Aroma: Malty; slightly hoppy; slight aroma

Taste: Slightly bitter, but overall it is very watered down; very thin, like a radler without the lemon

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

I was disappointed in this beer. Today I went to the speciality beer shop in Berlin, and i decided to buy 8 or so beers with the only criteria that each cost more than e2.00/ltr (or e1.00 for a standard 1/2l bottle). This approach probably weeds out 80-90% of the multitude of offerings. So tonight I've had a cracking couple of beers. But I hate to say it, this one is doing very little for me indeed, despite it's price.

The beer is a fogy dark yellow keller. Despite the promising color, the head looked like detergent bubble that fainted within few seconds.

The beer had a light but nice lemony smell. The taste is almost absent but enjoyable and not as bitter as a Pils. Carbonation is interesting, there is a lot of small bubbles around.

Interesting and easy to drink beer. I'm not crazy about it but I would try it again.
