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.

Euro2-Flasche: Golden, hazy to cloudy, mid-sized lacy off-white head; spicy herbal-hoppy nose with a piney touch, some fruity yeast in the background; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied, pretty soft; slightly lingering bitter-hoppy finish with a certain yeasty fruitiness. Nice brew…

500 ml bottle as Urban Chestnut Hallertauer Zwickel Hell. BB 22/01/16. Thanks to Timo A!
Cloudy pale yellow color with a tiny white head. Mild grassy hops, mild sweetness, earthy notes and malt in the aroma. The flavor is grassy hops, mild bitterness, earthy notes and malt. Very drinkable.

deyholla (9935) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice light grain with a bit of grass and a touch of earthiness. Flavor has a lot of light grains with a nice earthy grass note underlying. Great drink ability.

Draft notes from Lansdale Brew Fest. Poured hazy gold with white clingy head. Nose was pale malt, hopcitrus, with a smooth flavor of the pale malt, hopcitrus, complexity from the non-filtration, and this is a definite beer you could gladly drink all day.

Taster at Upland Sourfest. From a bottle. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Wow. Awesome clean bready aroma, very satisfying. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Awesome change of pace from the 100 sours today. Good mild bitter, moderate sweet. Badass Zwickel. Want to session this.

MoritzF (9286) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Yeasty, malty, slightly biscuity and doughy aroma with herbal and subtle fruity hops. Mildly bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Soft malty base with hints of biscuit, white bread, backed by a mildly herbal-spicy hoppy touch; dry-ish mildly malty and slightly hop bitter finish with doughy and subtle grainy spots. Likeable. 27.IV.15

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Draft at the brewpub served in one of their steins (Wasandis is also served in this), so I didn’t get a great look at the color looked like a slightly cloudy yellow-gold, and there was an uneven white head. Aroma of grassy hops, straw, butter, bready and pale malts, and yeast. Flavor followed suit for the most part, getting sweeter, maltier, and more buttery as it went down and warmed. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a grainy, malty mouthfeel. Don’t know a whole lot about this style but it was nice and easy to drink. RE-RATE: Had it again at The Royale. This is still not a style I know much about but this is a great, sessionable beer. I’d like to try more Z/K/Ls for comparison because I don’t think they’d beat this.

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.
