COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reverence Series #1: Our first beer in our Reverence series of traditional European-style beers, is a sessionable German lager known as a Zwickelbier - a very old ’classic’ with a heritage traced back to the Middle Ages. Zwickel, pronounced ‘zv-ick-el’, is unfiltered, unpasteurized and finishes as a smooth-drinking, vitamin rich (from the yeast), naturally cloudy beer. Hops: Hallertau Malts: Two-Row Pilsner. Target stats (final stats TBD): 19 IBU, 4.8% ABV, 11.8 Original Gravity

My first time trying this local brew. Great beer. Not my usual preference but I found it easy to drink and refreshing. A good beer for a day or night of casual drinking. Smooth crisp and high quality beer.

Pours hazy pale yellow with white heas. Aromas of grassy hops, spices, some bread. Flavor of spices, grassy hops, and grainy malts. Easy drinking and well crafted.

A gorgeous, rustic, grassy-hoppy bitch of a lager. Dry, refreshing, plenty of spicy hop character, and an honest, grainy backbone. Right in my wheelhouse.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2012 Thanks, Carter! Tasted on tap into shaker pint. Poured a cloudy golden color, persistent white head with some lace and lots of suspended yeast. Aromas of rising dough, fresh-baked white bread, graham crackers, black pepper, grass, leaves. Chalky, yeasty, grainy, lightly fruity, subtly spicy, pils-like, mild and balanced bittersweet. Light body, moderate carbonation, bready mouthfeel, crisp and refreshing lager finish. Delicious. I love this kind of thing, and can’t wait until it’s available in bottles (any day now.) I think The Stable’s Zoigl was a little better but they’re out-of-business now, so that was obviously a minority opinion.

Pretty good for a lager, very light. Sweet and malty. Very low IBU. Smooth. Strong pils taste.

Draft at the brewpub, served in a real German steinkrug. Looks to be dark golden colored with just a little bit of head. But this beer brings me right back to the German countryside. Bready malt with a neat bitter finish, I long for a pretzel or brat and brotchen. May not impress those look for audacity, but this is solid classic beer and my favorite of the day.

Zymurgeist2 (1080) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 27, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Lots of fruity esters but disjointed. The Hellertau plays its normal nice part, but the yeast seems to take over and mess this beer up a tad. Of all the beers i enjoyed, this was lowest on the list of the taster.

Easy to drink. Basic beer. Smooth with little aftertaste. Would definitely drink again.

draft... bright and clear gold body... not much to say about this beer, good enough zwickel, just not a style I appreciate

Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate floral hop and malt aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium swwet finish of moderate duration. Good soft beer.
