Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2009
Very hazy orangey-amber with a thick head. Yeasty fresh aroma is rustic - light bread, light hop. Bitter, dry, full body. Lightly yeasty. Goes down easy - a complex yet completely quaffable country lager.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Wonderfully floral and biscuity nose, the malt is sharp and crunchy, the hops are bright and prickly and the carbonation is effervescent, prickly and tight. floral dried hops impart a wonderful rustic character on top of a sharp, firm and minerallic malt body. chalky, resinous, minerally, just freaking amazing from front to back.

This is what small craft beer is all about. This Zoigl should be the standard others are judged by. A super craft beer.

on tap at weisser schwan - on the way to neuhaus for the zoigl fest, accompanied by some accordion. honey-coloured with a lasting, white fairy floss head. invigorating honey-hay aroma with a distant mustiness. plenty of bitterness with a hint of tinned peach, extremely drinkable

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Draft at the Weisser Schwan, and my first real Zoigl. Hazy orange with thick white foamy head and lacing. Absolutely gorgeous. Fresh hoppy aroma with lots of grain breadiness. Quaffable, low carbonation and soft mouthfeel. Has a hoppy entry with a slightly sparged, husky finish and a fruity body, also lots of herbal bitterness and dry. Great stuff.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
At Weisser Schwan, Windischeschenbach. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of honey, minerals, and banana peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, soft carbonation. Slightly more interesting/diverse aroma than most, more hop-accented too. One of my favorites of the trip.

shrubber85 (7557) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Tap at the Weisser Schwan. Lemon and bready malt aroma. Hazy amber color with nice head. Lemon peel and creamy barley malt flavor. Mild diacetyl finish. Excellent - another great zoigl.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2009
Draught at Weisser Schwan, Windischeschenbach. Cloudy pale amber, creamy head. Dry and lightly grassy, minerally and quite crisp. Light bodied, refreshing and easy going. More minerally than the stuff at Oberpfälzer Hof.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 23, 2012
draught at Weißer Schwan. Hazy-cloudy amber-golden colour, large and creamy off-white head. Yeasty, nice malty base with hints of caramel, slightly fruity in the finish. Very shy hops. Smooth palate and carbonation. A great accompaniment for my Zoiglschnitzel.
