Ein bisschen Getreide mit ein paar Kräutern, dazu noch Malz. Recht trinkbar und angenehm in der Perlung, wenn auch zu brotig.

Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy dirty golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of hops and bread. Taste of mild hops, straw, nuts, leaves, basement and mild fruits. Hints of bread and grains. Easy and nice drinkable, not a bad one.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

Golden-amber beer with a very light head. The aroma is gently malty, and the flavour is very well roasted and quite malty.
