Sweet corn and grain nose, with lightly notes of wheat and unnamed adjuncts. Tinny and sour flavor, with some fresh but mild corn and pils malt, far too sweet, but at least it has some decent fruity citrus hops that smell and taste decent enough.

Have you ever accidently run your notes on a beer through the washing machine? Last night I turned my notes on this beer to pulp with help from Kennmore’s Heavy Duty double rinse cycle. I do remember Zoigl Star being a fine looking fresh lager with light bitternesss . Zoigl Star has peaked my interest in Eastern Bavarian region and ABC beers.

This is a good lager. Definitely has some character and flavor to talk about, something that was lacking in other ABC brews. Definitely a big step up from the Mountain lager.

This is a pretty good stuff, has a nice tang/spice taste to it. Colour is a cloudy orangish. One of ABCs better beers I would have to say. I hope this becomes a regular.

On Tap at Appalachian’s Brewpub. Copppery color, not particularly pale at all, more amber than some amber ales. Bready and zingy. Almost some wheat flavors in there. Still, very light and crisp. Much cleaner flavor than other breweries lagers that are supposed to take pride in their cleanness. this is clean without being bland. Very nice beer for this style; my favorite lager thus far on the beer journey. Available only at the brewpub and seasonally (January, but some of their other seasonsals were still on tap, so may be available later).
