Today’s beer: Kress Bayrisch Zwickel
This is my first Kellerbier/Zwickel and I think I’m in love!
Something about the yeasty cloudiness, the malt sweetness, and an overall tartness remind me of a mix between a dark wheat beer a Märzen.
For the style I think the color is a little dark but it’s a beaut.
Cloudy and amber. Just perfect.
Kellerbier literally means cellar beer and this is and old style that predates pasteurization and refrigeration by wide margins.
It reminds me of a tankard of beer a character from Middle Earth might quaff.
This was a great addition to the calendar and quite possibly a style I’ll seek out in the future.
