Session Pils - Czech Pale Lager - 4.0% ABV

Zwickel - German Pale Lager - 4.5% ABV

Unfiltered, German pale lager hopped with Spalt & Sterling. Slightly malty, yet dry, with a touch of lemon and pepper in the aroma. Zwickel beers are typically lower ABV offerings and served fresh from the lagering tank, so a slight haze is appropriate. All German grain undergoes a decoction mash to yield a deep malt richness.

PKG: 16oz can, six packs
ABV: 4.5
MALT: German Pils
HOPS: Spalt, Sterling
YEAST: Lager
FUN FACTS: Zwickel is a brewers sampling cock, hence the rooster.

All German in its construction, but with a hop profile only Germany can produce. Hallertau Blanc provides notes of peach and grapes that meld perfectly with the smooth German malt and cold lagering. All German grain undergoes a decoction mash to yield a deep malt richness and a long lagering time allows the hops to integrate perfectly.

ABV: 4.5
