2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Klassisches, aber sehr süffiges Kellerbier mit ein paar Malzen und gar etwas Frucht. Süffig, trinkbar, aber letztendlich Massenware.

Bottle from Pivnizub - many thanks, Günther! Pours out in a light cloudy dirty golden colour with airy head and medium body. Aroma of straw and dust. Taste of light malt, barley, straw, hops and citrus. Sweet-nutty finish. Nice one - very refreshing and solid.

Bottle 500ml (MBS)
Amber color, decent off-white head, some lace. Aroma is quite weak, some berries and grains. Medium-bodied. Flavor is a bit grainy, sweetish berryness, light hoppy note in the finish. Nice maltyness. I suppose this quite decent imitation of real Zoigl (well, not had one yet).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours coppery and hazy, head is very large and vanishes quite quick. Aroma has rye-like graininess, grass and little flower-like aromas. There is indeed a lot of graininess in this beer. Taste is also very rye-like and grainy, there is also a lot of dried fruits. Palate is medium, you can almost chew the grains. On the other hand very full, on the other hand very fresh. Very grainy and full-bodied kellerbier.
