Kanone Zwickel

Brewery: Kanone
Town: Schnaittach

Style: Zwickel
Color: chestnut
Head: white, creamy
Nose: malty, grainy
Body: medium
Palate: malty, grainy, underlying hops
Finish: lingering, semi-dry

Served: on tap at Balkon in Nürnberg

Impression: I’d had a fair Dunkles from Kanone at the Nürnberg Festival a few years ago so I was happy to see this Zwickel from them at Balkon. It’s a little maltier than I expect in the style but not cloying. It’s brewed with Herkules and Mandarina hops but evidently not prominently so. The lingering finish is semi-dry but could use a dose of bitterness to keep me happy.
