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

Which I could sit down with a session of this. Where it stands it is a good lager and one of the few in the style in the US.

Never had this style before; pretty good. Honestly they could've called it any style of German lager(dortmunder, helles, etc) and I wouldn't have known better. Very tasty though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

illiniphil (134) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2013
This is a classic lager. What it was meant to be. Pours dark straw with a nice white head. Malt predominates but a slight hop flavor balances. This is what a lager was meant to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WabashMan (1015) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Good, refreshing, and highly drinkable, this beer is a nice example of the style. Fairly light on the hops, mostly a malty, lightly sweet flavor to complement the medium gold and near white head.

Bif (1580) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a hazy copper color with a firm head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of some malt sweetness, mild fruit and citrus, a bit of grain and spice in the background. The taste is a subtle mix of malt and fruity sweetness, with a bit of grain and spice in the background. Mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Has a fairly light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer. A sessionable beer that goes down easy.

cbfobes (2596) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Tap at the brewery, pours a cloudy golden with a really thin head and no lacing, the aroma has a decent amount of banana and yeast on the front end and the flavor is much of the same, some spice and yeast in the finish, interesting.

2013 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a fizzy whit head. Aroma is a little citrus and cracker, very light. Taste is light malt and biscuit with a little grain and grapefruit. No bitterness to speak of. Has a thin, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very little carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (795) - Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2013
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.
