Had on tap at a restaurant in Vienna. Pours golden with hints of amber and very cloudy. Small head sticks around and leaves lacing. Pretty nice aroma but not a lot going on. A malty beer, for sure. Taste confirms it, typical Zwickel in that it is nice and malty but not too sweet. Easy to drink a few but far from remarkable.

,5L glass for €5 on tap @ Museum Cafe, Wien

Notes: Cloudy deep gold with a brass cast beneath a frothy head of white. Head retention and lacing are very good. Aroma: Sweetish grainy malt backed by lightly grassy and spicy hops. Flavor: As the aroma suggests with a bit more of a floral note. Moderately bitter. Dry finish with a light touch of residual malt, some light earthiness, and faded grassy and floral hops. Medium-light in body with a crisp, fine-bubbled carbonation. Highly drinkable.

Had this beer (several times) on tap at a festival in downtown Vienna with standard Austrian food (read: bratwurst and potatoes). A very cloudy and refreshing beer that goes well with Austrian food. Probably the best beer I had in Austria. If you are in Vienna - try this beer.

I had this beer on tap, along with a generous helping of Tafelspitz at a resturant in Vienna. The beer was murkey and cloudy, something of a dark straw color, topped with a huge rocky head. The beer's aroma was dominated by yeast. It was an earthy, almost sweet smell, but very enticing. Mild flavor, at once sweet and yeasty, but also with a flirtatious touch of sourness. There was a little grain husk as well. Pale malt comes forth in the mid-taste. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Light to medium in body. I have a bit of an internal debate about whether I'd rate the beer as high as I did without the accompanying food. The beer was a fantastic and refreshing counterbalance to the heavy Austrian food. I'm not sure that, on it's own, the beer would strike me as so good. Nevertheless, this was extraordinarily good when I had it.
