TAR (2687) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle, best by March 7, 2016: Clear, burnished copper. Sticky and fluffy head. Pleasant aroma of minerals, breadcrust, airy phenols, hazelnut, apricot, spicy Hallertau, burnt toffee and candyish yeast. Hint of rustic sulfur, as well. Loose and prickly carbonation. Quite minerally and bracingly dry, initially. Splash of plum jam gives way to a more acidic fruit dimension akin to plum skin which is offset by a faint punch of melanoidins. Malt is fairly succulent and is cradled beautifully by the very clean fermentation. Assertive snap of herbal and woody Hallertau brings to mind sassafras and licorice root as it stiffens the clean and firm body. Nice and peppy throughout, owing to the abundance of brisk minerals. Well-attenuated finish is pillared by rich breadcrust and a refined medley of soft and starchy pils-derived hay dust textures. No complaints here other than the thin mouthfeel and occasional wax notes. Very fun to smell and quaff, overall. It’s nice to find a bottled Zoigl that exudes authenticity, unlike most of the posers out there. A quality lager.

Bottled, thanks fonefan! Clear nut brown, small head. Caramelly nose. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramelly and moldy with low bitterness. Even being from Windischeschenbach I don’t get any zoigl vibes from this one, more regular over-caramelly dunkel.

# 3366 ersma: danke an andreas für die flasche. endlich mal wieder ein zoigl. unkriegbar hier im norden. bräunlich, dunkel, rubinstich im gegenlicht. mittelviel beiger schaum, der recht stabil ist. der geruch ist mlazig, süßlich mit karamell, leicht röstig. der antrunk ist leicht säuerlich, recht malzig mit hopfenherbe. karamell und leichte röstigkeit. die mitte bleibt röstmalzig, es wird etwas herber. der abgang bringt dann verstärkt malzig-süßlich aromen und karamell. gut dosierte herbe. die 0.5-l-plopp-pulle hat ein etikett, das richtig gut wäre (sonderfarbe silber und gold), wenn es nicht so zugeballert wäre. rücketikett kostet geld, machte das ganze aber deutlich besser. fazit: angenehmes dunkles. ausgewogen und von der hopfung angenehm. probierenswert. 11,11,10,10,9,10 - 10,20 - 15/9

Dobry tradycyjny kellerbier. Rubinowo-ciemny o średniej piance ze słodowo-karmelowym smakiem, w zapachu zbożowo-trawiasty. Karmelowa słodowośc i wytrawny finisz. Bardzo to wszystko współgra razem.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 18, 2012
bottled. a decent rich shade of amber with a firm head; aroma of grass, nettle tea and stale cola; quite fizzy but drinkable - some tinny bitterness but not as much of the powder dry fruitiness as from other windy b zoigls
