Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Rifugium on 06-20-2011

Our flagship lager, pronounced ‘zv-ick-el’, is an unfiltered, unpasteurized, German classic that finishes as a smooth-drinking, vitamin rich (from the yeast), naturally cloudy bier.

Golden hued with great clarity. Minimal head. Aroma is slightly nutty with a bit of pale malt. Mouthfeel is salty and light. Flavor is strong in terms of light malt and somewhat salty and buttery. There's just something underwhelming here. This is not one of my favorites.

Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Stays hazy (as it should), great lacing & above average head retention

S: Breadyness, grassiness, pears & perfumy hops

T: Breadyness, faint yeastiness, slight peppery notes & pear up front. Orange peel, white grapes, a hint of lemon, wet grain & more bready notes as this warms. Finishes grassy, grainy with pears & hay notes, some faint white grape & juicy fruit notes

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Drinks so easy, compares favorably with most of the kellerbiers I had in Germany. I would buy this if they actually distributed in SW Mizzou

A super smooth, crisp, refreshing lager. It may not punch you in the mouth with flavor, but there is something to be said about it's excellent execution of subtle flavors and smooth taste.

Would absolutely purchase and drink again.
