Spalter Zwickel on tap

Brewery: Stadtbrauerei Spalt (Spalter Bier)
Style: Zwickel
Color: unfiltered light golden

Head: white, creamy

Nose: citrusy hops, spicy, slight grain

Body: medium

Palate: dry, citrusy, Spalter hops

Finish: lingering, dry, semi-bitter

Served: on tap at Biergarten Kopernikus

Impression: It was nice to find this on tap at Kopernikus in Nürnberg. Oddly enough, they probably had it the first time I was here but with four amazing Franconian dark beers on tap I never considered it. After going to Spalter and really enjoying all their beers, I saved this Zwickel for last. I’d bought a bottle in Spalt and quite liked it. It’s even better on tap. It’s got a nice citrusy nose which creeps into the dry hoppy palate. The finish is lingering, dry and only slightly bitter. Really nice.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
