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.

Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Draft at the brewery. This is hazy and golden. A lemon grass and bready aroma. Some grain is tasted with gentle hops with light fruit and flowers. There is a hint of spice. This is subtle and tasty. I love the low ABV.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This rating is from bottle (even though I had some on tap too)... YES the bottled version is far better, no idea why.

Hazy golden hue with a fading head and spotty lace. The aroma is a beautiful confluence of pils malt, noble hops and minerally water. The taste is spot on with the nose, just bitter enough for refreshment and just enough mouth feel to make sure you know you are not drinking some blah lager. I can only imagine this is what bier was more modern advances got in the way. Glad I still have two more to enjoy... should have bought more. FYI, my tap rating would have been 3.7. I did detect a touch of DMS on tap, none in the two bottles I have opened so far.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6538) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was bready with a faint citrus note. The flavor was bready and a touch nutty with hints of lemon, egg white and pepper. Medium length yeasty citrus and pepper finish. Medium body. Fairly basic.

MichaelAwesome (6388) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
Nett, einfach nett. Aber auch leicht bieder mit einer recht starken Perliung, einem trockenen Gaumen und einer angenehmen Frische und Knackigkeit. Einfach zu trinken, mir aber etwas eintönig, dabei jedoch handwerklich sehr gut umgesetzt.

drfabulous (6324) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Draught at PI on Delmar. Yellow and hazy. Light with a bit of fruitiness to the overall taste. Enjoyable for a warm day. Very drinkable.

tiong (6280) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
500ml bottle (as Hallertauer Zwickel Hell)

Pours golden orange with a small head. Aroma of grassy hops, earthy notes, bready malts and hay. Taste is crisp, grassy and earthy with some bready notes. Finish is crisp, grassy and malty with some earthy notes and hay. Okay.

Braudog (6254) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, served in a real German steinkrug. Looks to be dark golden colored with just a little bit of head. But this beer brings me right back to the German countryside. Bready malt with a neat bitter finish, I long for a pretzel or brat and brotchen. May not impress those look for audacity, but this is solid classic beer and my favorite of the day.

Idiosynkrasie (6185) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
500ml bottle. Hazy, milky golden colour with huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy aroma with protein accentuation, yeasty and minimally doughy, thereby fresh and airy. Taste is dry, grainy, husky, protein notes, a touch of lemon. A Zwickel as it shall be, reverence evinced.
