kappldav123 (4596) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle looks very simple, a bit like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts malty, a bit dry and moldy, hoppy background. More and more metallically, a bit sourish. But still quite drinkable. Okay.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Draught at Zoigl Stefflwirt Wiesau, Nov. 2012: Golden orange. Persistent white foam. Yeasty (sulfur) aroma with some cotton candy, kumquat, hard lemon candy (Spalt), and fresh bread. Vague note of butter, vinegar and soured fruit. Peppy and prickly carbonation. Notably crisp with dry malt, minerals and a pleasant dose of hop spice. Bouncy hay links up with a distant toffee-glazed nuttiness to augment the core. Supportive poundcake lends substantial weight, as well, yet remains fairly buoyant and graceful, as well. Hops brim with feisty pepper notes, which favorably dovetails with the ongoing mineralic briskness. Dab of butteriness comes and goes. Mild fruitiness accompanies a moderate level of sticky orange and reduced-peach residual sugar. Munich and pils malt yield a silky and soft fresh bread and punchy melanoidin interplay. Gentle toffee dots the cookie sweetness and pronounced yeast bite in the finish. The malt character is quite attractive, but it’s too bad about the overly gassy mouthfeel and soured fruit aspects, which mar things considerably. Young and greenish, but a decent representation.

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2012
draft at Zoigl Stefflwirt Wiesau
the second zoigl of the trip from a private brewery. hazed honey body with a creamy off-white head and thick cascading carbonation. moderately musty and gamey with notes of moldy hay, a lot of barnyard scents: wheat, field / earth, dust / air. the hops are honey-tinged and juicy but are overridden by diacetyl, much like you would find in a kvasnicovy czech pils, only this being zoigl it’s much more rich, sticky and smacky. the rustic green and raw hop character also speaks to czech pils, and the acid in tingling throughout with some lactic and sulfuric egg shell and mineral roughness, though the medium-level sweetness helps.

kevnic2008 (7124) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2012
Golden-amber beer with a very light head. The aroma is gently malty, and the flavour is very well roasted and quite malty.

EithCubes (4640) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle by 17.11.11. Sweet malty nose. Hazy, still orange body with a beige head. Taste is sweet, mild chalky orange and lightly sunny malt, low bitterness and faint roast in the bg. Crisp medium-full body, carbonation is sharp. Mild fruitiness. Pretty much the definition of a 3.0-level beer in Germany, five or take a few tenths.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Stark karbonisierter, dafür aber wenig intensiver Antrunk nach wenig Getreide und Hefe mit leichter Herbe. Das süffige Bier weist auch weiterhin keine intensiven Noten auf, die vorhandenen Aromen stagnieren oder werden gar milder und wirken harmlos, das Bier insgesamt langweilig. Muffig bitterer Abgang, klangloser Abgang. 10/6/7/7/7/6

Grima (2041) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2011
The beer in the glass is dark amber colored, slightly cloudy, with soapy head. The smell is Zoigl-typical very fruity and yeasty, very sweet. The beginning part is yeasty and sour with fruity nuances. A subtle sweetness comes through more and more. The aftertaste shows again very fruity, with subtle malty aroma. The further course gets even more fruit, but the sour yeasty notes is somewhat clearer. Very intense Zoiglbier!
