COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zoigl is a golden, unfiltered lager beer which was originally brewed only in the region of Eastern Bavaria, between Franconia and the Czech Republic. For centuries, Zoigl was brewed in brewhouses owned by the town or an association of small brewers. The Zoigl-Star, a six-angular star similar to the Star of David, was the sign of brewers in the middle ages. The star symbolizes the three elements (water, earth, and fire) and the three ingredients (water, malt, and hops) used for brewing. The importance of the yeast was not yet known in the 1400’s.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a hazy orangish yellow body with a small film of white head. The nose is slightly bready pale malt with a slight yeastiness and just a little grassy hops. Very nice doughy and bready maltiness, very soft and well rounded flavor. Light to moderate bitterness with a bit of fluffy yeast on the finish. Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth with moderate carbonation. Very nice, one of my favorites from ABC.
