3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, quite stable fluffy off-white head; sweet grainy nose with distinctive fruity aromas, presumably no traces of infection; robust sweet-bitter flavour, good body for a beer of 4.8%; drier and hoppier - but not without fruity flavours - in the bitter-sweet finish. Good......

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Hazy, deep golden to light-amber colour with a big foamy white head. Slightly yeasty and sweet cara-malty aroma with notes of sour dough, a subtle fruity touch of apricots and citrus, as well as a whiff of herbal hops. Slightly sweet flavour, light bodied with a lively, even a bit sharp carbonation. Slim cara-malty base with yeasty-fruity notes (apricots) and shy herbal hops; moderately dry and mildly hop bitter finish. A tad too fizzy and slim, otherwise likeable. 18.VI.10
