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.

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.
