Stefansbräu Zwickel

Brewery: Stefansbräu
Town:
Wilhelmshöhe (Dinkelsbühl)
Style:
Zwickel
Color: unfiltered golden

Head:
white, creamy
Nose:
malty
Body: medium

Palate:
balanced, grainy, hoppy
Finish: lingering, dry, semi-bitter

Served: on tap at Zur Schleuse

Impression: After having two unusually hoppy beers for their styles, I think Stefansbräu hit the exact right style for them. I like a dry hoppy Zwickl and this one very much fits the bill. The grain is an undercurrent but adds to the otherwise dry hoppy palate. The finish is quite dry and only slightly bitter, making it moreish. Bottled version I brought home was excellent too.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
