3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Hotel Waldnaab in Neuhaus, 2009: Yellow gold appearance. Tight white head with spotty lace. Soft, bready, mineralic aromas. Intensely peppery, as well, with notes of lemon rind, uncured hay, honeysuckle and mild sulfur. Pleasant mouthfeel, snug carbonation. Sharply sulfury and peppery with a palate-scrubbing mineralic snap mirrored by equally vivid pils malt (toasted hay) kissed with faint biscuit. Some lemon cake heft, as well. Hops are floral and delightfully polished, boasting ample succulence along with a semi-coarse peppery and herbal accent. So little time for note-taking when a beer is this quaffable. Rustic, charming, fun.

draft at hotel waldnaab/sausewind stube, 2009 tag der kommunbrauer. dimpled mug. mostly clear light honey colored body with a silky fine-bubbled white head. frother, fresh, zesty and hoppy, smells and tastes of hearty/husky wheat and cracked cereal grains. wet and oily but a little more zest and bite than other zoigls, and has a heftier malt body. clean and snappy. pick up a little bit of soured mashed potatoes in the finish but that’s not as bad as it sounds. a wonderful zoigl - fresh, zesty, hoppy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Hotel Waldnaab, Neuhaus. Orange blonde, clear. Flowery earthy hopbitter flavor. Just a hint of citrus. Fairly low on aroma. Not the very best of the available zoigls, but good enough.
