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

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of light malt and biscuit with a hint of light fruit and yeast. Taste is biscuit with a slight honey and fruit sweetness and an underlying minerality. Soft mouthfeel and medium bodied with light/medium carbonation. Super drinkable and nicely flavorful for a lager.

(500ml bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of nuts, grain, straw, and minerals. Flavor of toasted grain, earth, grass, bread, and minerals. Typically, I do not care for Zwickels. This one is exceptionally clean and has great quality. Good beer.
