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 Perle, Hallertau Mittelfrüh. Malts: Two-Row Pilsner.

Bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Consumed very chilled. Hazy golden color with standard Co2 level, spotty lace around the edges of the glass. Aroma of Noble hops, grain and skunky lager yeast.

The flavor has a solid malt base with the Noble hops, skunky yeast and grassy notes. Ends on a mild sweetness. Straw hints. This is exactly as it would taste in Germany. A perfect example of the style.

Draft served in shaker glass. Dark yellow with a nice white head, pretty clear with medium body. Grassy flavor with a long bitter finish. Very interesting nuance to this, for a lager.

micmillon18 (37) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2015
500 ml Euro bottle into a dimple mug. Despite what the bottle says, I can’t find a born on date. Aroma - Herbal hops, honey, fresh cut grass. Cereal (oat variety, hay. Fresh and bright. Lots of good things going on here. Appearance - Hazy gold. Fizzy, white head which comes as it goes. Taste - Sweet oat cereal/ grain and honey flavors initially countered by medicinal, herbal hops with a touch of citrus acidity. Finishes with a lasting grassy, lemon flavor. Palate - Light to medium bodied. Semi-dry. Overall - The world needs more unfiltered lager, with this one being a standard bearer.
