NikkTwist (3051) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2017
UPDATED: APR 13, 2017 Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy blunted gold pour with slim white foam. Lasting lace. Fragrant honey toast aroma. Balanced lightly toasted whole wheat malts. Orange marmalade. Marzipan. Apricot. Croissants. Hazelnuts. Honeycomb. Smooth. Slightly juicy body. Simple but well executed. Better than expected.

Beer Table To Go, NYC bottle: pours copper with a small head. Aroma is bready and somewhat sugary. Taste is somewhat sweet. Nice medium body. Easy. Sugary aftertaste.

Jow (3821) - New York, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle at home newly distributed brewery to NYC grabbed from city hops. Had to google what a zoigl beer was. Anyways not the prettiest dirty gold pour. Nose is grainy and some malt. Tastes of cereals, honey, malt, hay, slight sour notes, maybe some fruit in background. Creamy mouthfeel. Not much carbonation. Interesting.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This silkiest of malty lagers shares honeyed cereals balanced out by floral hops in a most sffig vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the amber haze.
-Malts could not be better rounded and clearly expressed.
-Hops also offer a few herbal angles.
-This comes out more professional than most of the true the Zoiglbiers Ive had. Surely their brewing equipment is more state-of-the-art.
-This may not be a proper Zoiglbier technically-speaking, but it is a smashing lager nonetheless.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

floydslip (383) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Amber beer with a thin bright white head. Light sweet nose of maple syrup, hazelnut, and candle wax. Thankfully, the flavor is not as sweet with notes of caramel, bread, and nuts finished by a somewhat flaccid bitterness that leaves an odd aftertaste. Despite all the layers, the final impression is a bit watery. Decent, not great.

JDBaker11058 (2071) - Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2016
appearance: clear golden-amber, short, creamy-to-soapy bright white head, thinning quickly to a collar. aroma: honey smacks cereal, some grassy notes, hint of floral hops and pepper. taste: grainy, with toasted barley, light honey, a hint of caramel; hops are grassy, slightly floral, slightly peppery. finish: palate is full, bordering on flat, but the flavors and light hop bitterness dry things out nicely. notes: First exposure to the Zoigl style, and I liked the flavors but wish theyd kept the bung in the barrel juuuust a little tighter. Guess itd be a keller and not a zoigl then, which probably just means I prefer a keller. Aaaaaand I just went full beer-douche. NEVER GO FULL BEER-DOUCHE. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Bottle. Dee golden color. Hint of honey in the aroma. Malty flavor, hints of citrus and honey. Sweetish. Pleasant enough.

Bottle from Quack-Duck thanks. A copper beer with medium head. Nose is on barley sugar and blond caramel. Aroma is sweet, grainy with grassy hops, light almond and nuts touch, body is better than expected. Finish is on barley sugar with vegetables notes.
