Das Bier für Liebhaber: Vollmundig, süffig und besonders bekömmlich. Dank seiner wochenlangen Reifung in den tiefen Kellern der Familienbrauerei. Kein Wunder: unser meistgetrunkenes Bier, aus bester bayerischer Braugerste und feinem Hopfen von der Hallertau, eingebraut mit einem Wasser, wie es besser für den Brauprozess nicht sein kann – das zeichnet Zötler Gold aus.

Bottle, bought @ SKY, Süderlügum.
Clear pale golden with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma is sweet, malty, light brewing cereal, soft citric. Medium carbonation, fairly light and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, citric, quite fine pilsner malts, grassy. Fairly short aftertaste. Okay, even if it feels a bit too clean and is too sweet.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear yellow and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a light malty touch . This beer smells malt.

Bottled 500ml. -from Bier Imperium, Vienna. Yellow coloured, small white head, dusty vegetable nose. Moderate malty, light acidic hoppy and some vegetables with short watery bitterish finish. Not good.

Marko (4979) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2011
Courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (thanks!). Poured a yellow-golden body with a medium sized white head. Sweet, malty nose, agrumey? notes. Soft, too soft sweaty grainy taste, malty. Interesting mouthfeel but what’s with the actual taste.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2011
Hopfiger Geruch, leicht getreidig. Hopfig-frischer Antrunk, belebend. In der Mitte dann milder und aromatisch mit angenehmer Bitternote. Malzig und feinherb im Ausklang. Ein gutes Export. Süffig.Test vom 3.3.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
Bottled. Pale yellow colour with low head. Sweet cookies, honey and hay in aroma. Flavour is glue and sewer with a cardboard feeling in mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is light and papery astringency with low hop bitterness. Not the best of beers.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Pale yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, hops and a bit of citrus. The taste is sweet of malt, but has a somewhat bitter and acidic mouthfeel and a slightly sulphurous finish.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. Yellow straw colour with a frothy and quite durable head. The aroma is very malty, with everpresent graininess, a bit bready and sweetish. Taste is also one-dimensionally grainy-malty with some breadiness, the bitterness being virtually absent. The sweet side is quite well balanced by the bready elements, but I miss the hops. For a decidedly malt-oriented lager this is actually quite good, however.
