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

Appearance is a cloudy golden with a frothy white foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is all pilsner malt, with no noticeable hop aroma. Taste is a bready pilsner malt with a moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to thick for the style, with a slight creaminess and moderate carbonation. Finishes clean and crisp with a slight residual bitterness. Reminiscent of a Helles, but with a creaminess from the unfiltered, bottle conditioned beer

Nice brew! Very yeasty. Great specimen of a Bavarian lager- a nice Helles cousin! Very enjoyable. Will have to buy more!

Bottle... Pours clear and golden with a small, fizzy, white head. Although I’m trying really hard to pull something from the glass, I can’t smell anything here. Light to medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mostly-balanced and a touch bitter with a hint of buttery diacetyl in the otherwise crisp finish. The diacetyl actually helps here, because it doesn’t really bother me and there’s not much of anything else going on.

arminjewell (6323) - lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, biscuit, nice honey, hints of floral and spicy notes. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, nice crisp crackery notes, some floral notes, finishing dry, clean. Nice version.

From bottle. Pours a nice amber with a couple fingers of white head. Decent lager - figure a Bud done right with a bit of a kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (5739) - Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Draft to pils glass. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of lager yeast and mild hops. Tastes like it smells with more of a yeast presence. A bit mineraly as well. Average on the palate. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Keg @ Urban Chestnut. Slightly hazy gold with a small head. Nice bread and light floral hoppiness. Fresh peppery hop flavor. Creamy malt. Sharp carb on the finish. Awesome.

JonLaRue (24) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle sourced from one of their 4 packs. Beer wafts of bread, barley and weakly of hops. Appearance is a thick opaque blonde. Tastes like the best lager I have ever had. Not surprising, the owner of UBCB brewed a lot of AB’s best beers for Michelob. Palate is refreshing as a well flavored lager could be the only thing this beer is missing is hops has too much grain/ bread taste.

BOSSbrewer (1940) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle at home. Properly chilled and served, but I had a gusher. About 30 seconds of foam pouring out. Oh well. Other than that...pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is wet grass and lemons. Light bodied. Nice beer apart from the gushing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
