This rare beer is a bready, malty lager with only a delicate hop flavor. A communal beer from the Oberpfalz region of Germany, finding it is an adventure within itself. Drinking this will take you to the country side of Eastern Bavaria. Pilsner and Munich 1 malts were used with the late addition of Hallertau Hersbruker hops. EN JOY while it lasts.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2011
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.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2015 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.

Sampled on draft at GTMW 2011. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. Good head retention and lacing. The aroma is very corny with some toastiness. The taste is pretty much the same. Medium bodied. High carbonation.

On tap at the Stable. Amber with a medium white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of grains, toasted malt and light fruit. Taste is more of the same with a dry crisp finish.

Sampler at the brew pub. It poured an orange coloring with a thin off-white head that lasted for a very long time. It had a toasted malt aroma and flavor. Not a bad brew.

jdskinns (220) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2010
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.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2010
Draft at the Stable and listed as 4.4% abv. If only more beers were. Bright orange-amber. Nutty, malty nose with notes of pumpkin. Enticing. lightly sweet with a nice crisp bitterness. Oh my, I could drink a lot of this.
