Terrible zoigl... definately too much hops for such a beer. Also too filtered. Not recommended.

TAR (2595) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2015 Bottle best by Mar. 16, 2016: Golden in color with minimal haze. Creamy but nonuniform head. Clean but simple nose of minerals, lemon, hay, baguette and piecrust. Loose carbonation. Thinnish body. Initially toasty with fairly vibrant pils malt which distributes a profusion of baguette and hay notes underscored by deeper cookie accents. Malt takes on a grassy hay dimension which echoes the grassy hop aspects. Lemony splash of well-integrated hops ensues, though a noticeable waxiness as well as an intrusive slickness negates much of the hoppy brightness. Lemon, hay and vague toast encompass the basic but mostly clean finish. It’s nice to see that this brewery is actually trying rather than simply exploiting the word "zoigl" for monetary purposes, like so many other charlatans are doing with their fraudulent bottled product. No obvious off notes found here, but it certainly doesn’t possess the character that you’ll encounter in most of the stuff produced at the kommunbrauhauses, nor does it exhibit the depth of character found in their Dunkles Zoigl. Tastes more like Franconia than Oberpfalz, but it’s still an enjoyable lager.

Moravius (1037) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) aus dem Cash-Getränkemarkt, Weiden. - Dunkelgelb, leicht trüb; üppige weiße Schaumkrone. - In der Nase Hefe, Karamel, matt fruchtig-herber Hopfen mit dumpfen Zügen. - Im Antrunk matt herb-fruchtig mit recht dumpfen, abgestandenen Noten. Ein wenig süßliches Karamelmalz, Anflüge von Banane. Rezenz wie bei einem Industriebier, für einen Zoigl also viel zu rezent; etwas dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang schroffe, lustlose Hopfenherbe mit Noten von alten Socken. Hier schmeckt man deutlich den Hopfenextrakt. - Noch trinkbar, aber unrund und billig gehopft. Mit einem echten Zoigl hat das wenig Ähnlichkeit.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Bottle @ Oberphalz. Pours Golden with a small White head. Fruit, orange , bread and grain. Some more hops would have done it good. Medium bodied. Quite decent. Bottle @ Windisch. Cloudy golden. Corn, grain and dust. The bottle I brought home was much better. I let the highest rating stand.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2012
It’s hazy orange-golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, bread and fruit. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, fruit, malt and bread - and the finish is slightly dry. A beer that almost drinks itself - lovely, but not stunning...
