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 Perle, Hallertau Mittelfrüh. Malts: Two-Row Pilsner.

(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.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits beer tasting on 04/03/2014: The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Toasted malt, spiced fruit and yeast in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, citrus and earthy yeast. The finish is grainy malt and subtle banana. Decent overall.

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.

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.

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.
