Radeberger Zwickelbier by Radeberger is a Zwickelbier and is being evaluated as a Pale Kellerbier (category 7C in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). Munich Helles are golden lagers with a moderate pils malt character with a slight hop presence throughout. Kellerbiers and Zwickelbiers are essentially unfiltered German lagers, most typically of the Munich Helles or Märzen styles.

Radeberger Zwickelbier pours golden in color with an appropriate slight haze and a medium white head. The aroma is moderately light crackery and bready malt with light floral and herbal hops. The flavor is moderately light crackery and bready malt with slightly lighter spicy and floral hops. The beer finishes moderately bitter, dry and crisp with light crackery malt and moderate-light herbal and spicy hops. 

Radeberger Zwickelbier is an excellent German lager. The beer is very clean with a dry and crisp finish. The malt has a little complexity while retaining superior quaffability. The hop level is appropriately just below the level of the malt with high-quality noble hop flavors of spicy, herbal and floral. Be sure to seek out this exceptional Zwickelbier.
