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

brokensail (12479) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap @ Urban Chestnut, thanks to Andy...cheers John. Clear golden pour with a white head. Really nice bready malt and floral hops on the nose. Good sweetness, some grass, and spicy hops. Slight bitterness on the palate. Tons of bread, hints of apple, and lots of floral hops. Slight earth and spice. Good all around.

bhensonb (12135) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours golden amber with a creamy white head. Aroma of light malt with some citrus/herb hop. Med body. Flavor is herb - probably noble hop - with some underlying citrus and pale malt. Flavor is actually rather strong, but it’s made of light things. Finishes pretty dry. Drinks quite well.

(500ml bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of nuts, grain, straw, and minerals. Flavor of toasted grain, earth, grass, bread, and minerals. Typically, I do not care for Zwickels. This one is exceptionally clean and has great quality. Good beer.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a fairly hazy, golden yellow appearance with a diminishing white head. Lemony, light veggie, straw, light creamed corn, a bit herbal aroma. Uh oh. Tangy, light to moderate DMS, herbal/straw, somewhat chewy malty flavor with a fairly dry finish. Off but not off in a really horrible way- maybe they can clean this up. Update: tried on tap at Urban Chestnut and the DMS is still there. Goddammit, I really wanted this to be good.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2014
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.
