Arcobrau Zwickl

This is a 5.2% ABV Zwickl bier, or unfiltered German lager, a style related to the kellerbier. It is from Arcobrau of the Bavaria region of Germany. 

The beer pours a cloudy dull yellow, like a lemon meringue. There is nearly an inch of thick, white foam. The aroma is straw, sweet grain, bread, lightly floral and fruity. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes. The beer drinks smooth and easy with a light carbonation. Not a lot to say about this one, just a solidly enjoyable straightforward German beer.
