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 Malts: Two-Row Pilsner. Target stats (final stats TBD): 19 IBU, 4.8% ABV, 11.8 Original Gravity

Reverence Series Lager. True to bavarian style. Tasted like a lager i had in Garmish back in 1999. Puts many american lagers to shame.

Dogbrick (7243) - 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.

Another beer shared by Stan Hieronymus. Still geeked out. The beer had a rich translucent gold body with a film of white head. The aroma was herbal with some wildflowers; had a pastoral feel. There’s also a touch of white grape and maybe pear. The flavor brings much of the same; seems very traditional. The palate isn’t quite as soft as the Hefe, but is still soft and creamy overall. Would really love to try this in person someday. Thanks again, Stan!

Bottle from a trade. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty with citrus. Taste is light sweet. Follows aroma with a hint of lemon and orange. Light bodied with a slightly slick texture. A bit fizzy on the carb and a decently long finish. Pretty darn good.

Beergeek23322 (2024) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
1/6/2014. On tap. Golden yellow with a white head. Corn, grain and malty aromas with light hoppy flavors. Mild and simple beer without any complexity, yet very drinkable.

kevinator (713) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2013
This tasted as a standard pilsner. My understanding of the style is that it should have a darker color that the off-yellow of this one. Aroma was of grassy malts with some floral hoppiness. Decent but light mouthfeel. Easy to drink and crisp. Some hop bitterness up front with wheat type malts finishing out. OK but unremarkable. Would probably be better out of the cask.

STLGoldendog (22) - Ballwin, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Poured from pint bottle. Light golden color with light foamy head. A sweet bread aroma. Tastes of sweet grain with a citrus end. Overall a good Bavarian style lager.

Tap - fair size foamy head, light hazy gold color, pretty balanced aroma and flavor - light malt and hops with a slightly tart finish - not bad overall

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Taste sweet, floral. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from pump, thanks! Golden yellow with a large white topper. Aroma is grainy with toasted malt and mild fruit and citrus. Taste is on the sweeter side with bready malts, light fruit and light hops on the finish.

Pours hazy gold with a thin head and great lacing. Aroma is big dandelion floral and a faint bit of bergamot. Flavor is warm, toasty malts, with a hint of sweetness and a big grainy rush after the swallow. Some awesome yeasty dough and a grassy finish. Yes, please
