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

Strykzone (4826) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Draft at the brewery. This is hazy and golden. A lemon grass and bready aroma. Some grain is tasted with gentle hops with light fruit and flowers. There is a hint of spice. This is subtle and tasty. I love the low ABV.

Steeeve (326) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. Dry, bready aroma with some grassy hop notes. Taste is light bready malts, and very light hints of caramel, bread, and hay. Grassy hop finish, with a clean sort of earthiness. Palate is light and very quaffable. I’m not familiar with the Zwickel style, but I’d say this one is similar to a light maibock. Pretty nicely drinkable.
