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.

vyvvy (5014) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Pours clear light pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has light pale malt with no hops bitterness detected. It is lightly bready and smooth. Medium smooth body with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth lager malt, very light toast and a bit of citrus. The taste seems basic, but it is very well constructed. The finish has a light bit of spicy hops and a touch of malty sweetness. This is far from being a fireworks sort of beer, but a its a great no frills beer that will be a perfect summer afternoon beer. (7/4/7/4/15 - 3.7)

Feel the need to update this since the initial rating was a sample at a fest & I’ve had it multiple times since and now in bottles. I see nothing of the original rating notes that needs to be updated, but the consistency from this beer and flavors have really grown on me. The one alteration I would make to my ratings the Hallertau hops giving more of a spicy presence to the taste. This has become a bit of a benchmark for solid lagers to me.

Bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Consumed very chilled. Hazy golden color with standard Co2 level, spotty lace around the edges of the glass. Aroma of Noble hops, grain and skunky lager yeast.

The flavor has a solid malt base with the Noble hops, skunky yeast and grassy notes. Ends on a mild sweetness. Straw hints. This is exactly as it would taste in Germany. A perfect example of the style.

Yellowish with white head. Bitter and slightly fruity. Haven't really liked any of their beers. Had this on tap as part of a flight at urban chestnut brewery.
