3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at beerfest in Augusta. Poured a hazy orange color with a nice white head. Aroama was very bready, malts and citrus. Flavor was one of a kiund. Crisp, citrus, earthy. Very good. Longer finish. Brew master said they are one of two brewers in Missouri that brew a zoigl. This one was amazing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at The Stable in standard pint glass. Cloudy, deep golden color with medium white head which dissipated quickly. Lots of noble hop and active yeast aromas. Medium body with sparkling carbonation. Tastes of grain, rising dough, citrus zest, pepper. Crisp and refreshing. It’s an interesting experience: drinking a turbulent, yeasty beer which is nonetheless a fairly neutral lager. Hefeweizen is the only other mainstream unfiltered style, with all its attendant fruitier/spicier ale yeast esters. Amalgamated Zoigl is a masterfully crafted beer. Like the real deal in Germany, it’s somewhat hard to find, but well worth seeking out.

On tap at The Stable/Amalgamated. Pours a yellow, golden color with a white head. Aroma is malty, grainy, and kind of funky. Taste pretty much follows the aroma with a good amount of funk coming through. My first beer from Amalgamated, not too bad.
