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

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a hazy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and yeast. Taste is malt, grain, yeast, a touch of citrus, and a touch of grass. Very nice!

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours a light hazy yellow color with a monster, white bubbly head and a lot of carbonation. Aroma has a modest grassy, lemon nose from the hallertau, light pilsner nose, some light yeast character as well. Flavor has a smooth grassy, lemon start with a light amount of bitterness which fades to a very nice pilsner grainy finish. Body is light, very fizzy and slightly sharp feeling from the high carbonation. Overall a very tasty brew. Wish it was an everyday beer as I enjoy the full flavor for such a light beer.

An extremely refreshing and flavorul lager. You think that these styles of beers dont have depth and flavor which in a why the do lack what you can find in IPA’s and stouts. There is great flavor and depth here. Creamy body. Clean pour. Hazy as it’s says it to be. Yeasty and cereal-like. Refreshing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was bready with a faint citrus note. The flavor was bready and a touch nutty with hints of lemon, egg white and pepper. Medium length yeasty citrus and pepper finish. Medium body. Fairly basic.

If you want an easy drinking German style lager, this is a solid choice. Nothing stands out; just a crisp, slightly hazy, straw yellow refreshing beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Urban Chestnut on Jan 11th. Pours a cloudy golden color with white head. Grainy, earthy, herbal flavors. Alright, drinkable, but nothing special.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2013
On tap at House of 1000. Wheaty grainy nose with noble hop notes. Medium amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts medium dry with wheat and pale malt sweetness. Noble hop bite, carbonic acidity, and light hop finish.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (grain/cracker, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of DMS, linoleum, and detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Seems like maybe some promise lies under the covers, but the clunky/industrial flaws are prominent and difficult to ignore (in both nose and mouth). A drain pour, but at least the brewer’s heart was in the right place.

diefledermaus (7) - Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013 does not count
Reverence Series Lager. True to bavarian style. Tasted like a lager i had in Garmish back in 1999. Puts many american lagers to shame.

musinj6 (383) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden with white head and moderate to heavy lacing. Bready, yeasty and toasted malt flavors on the nose with maybe a slight hint of caramel on the back. Mildly sweet, hint of bitterness. Slight herbal hop, but this is very much a malt driven beer. Medium bodied palate with moderate carbonation. Long malty finish that is very smooth. Very drinkable.
