2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled - LCRBM2 - A quite clear golden coloured beer with a touch of off-white head. The aroma is buttery with some popcorn notes. The taste has a touch of toffee and a litttle spice. Tastes home brew and a little farty rough. OK. I didn’t really enthuse although I am very grateful for tasting a true Zoigl.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 From bottle: sour cream, butter and hops in the aroma. Butter, chewing gum, loads of flowery and earthy hops, especially revealing itself in the aftertaste. Hint of wood and butter in the aftertaste. Low on carbon. In spite of a very rural mouthfeel, this is very special beer. (7 2 8 2 15 = 3.4)
Tap @ zoiglstube. Blonde, just a bit hazy. Flowery, just a bit soapy aroma. Initial malty flavor with earthy hops and some citrus notes. Long flowery aftertaste with citrus.

Golden, light amber hazy coloured with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma, with some cream touches. Light body with a stronger finish, hoppy with some herbal touches. Very nice beer. Thanks Der Doppelbock

Little white head; golden colour with a very slight haze. Terribly malty, grassy nose, slightly smokey. Sweet initially, but with a very fine hoppy lining, especially coming up in the finish. Light, but grist slickness, refreshing. This is UNBELIEVABLE! Der Doppelbock upped everybody with this super addition to the knowledge here. And it was worth all the trouble, IMO.
