Tag Archives: zwickel lager


Closer to a fruitful (less wood-dried) India Pale Ale, unpasteurized Zwickel-styled lager reaches beyond its meekly balanced German, Czech, and Polish pilsner confluence. Tongue-tingled hop-glistened piney citrus frontage picks up herbal hop-oiled bittering to engage lemony grapefruit-peeled sourness and unobtrusive apricot-apple-pear sweetness. Recessive tobacco, hay, and barnyard acridity inform grassy bottom.
