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

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, served in a real German steinkrug. Looks to be dark golden colored with just a little bit of head. But this beer brings me right back to the German countryside. Bready malt with a neat bitter finish, I long for a pretzel or brat and brotchen. May not impress those look for audacity, but this is solid classic beer and my favorite of the day.

Zymurgeist2 (866) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 27, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Lots of fruity esters but disjointed. The Hellertau plays its normal nice part, but the yeast seems to take over and mess this beer up a tad. Of all the beers i enjoyed, this was lowest on the list of the taster.

Easy to drink. Basic beer. Smooth with little aftertaste. Would definitely drink again.

It poured a bright yellow color with a white head. The aroma was very malty. The flavor was about the same. A great Saturday afternoon beverage.

Strykzone (4475) - 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.
