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.

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.

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.

pivnizub (10456) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, quite stable fluffy off-white head; sweet grainy nose with distinctive fruity aromas, presumably no traces of infection; robust sweet-bitter flavour, good body for a beer of 4.8%; drier and hoppier - but not without fruity flavours - in the bitter-sweet finish. Good......

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2012
draft at Zoigl Stefflwirt Wiesau
the second zoigl of the trip from a private brewery. hazed honey body with a creamy off-white head and thick cascading carbonation. moderately musty and gamey with notes of moldy hay, a lot of barnyard scents: wheat, field / earth, dust / air. the hops are honey-tinged and juicy but are overridden by diacetyl, much like you would find in a kvasnicovy czech pils, only this being zoigl its much more rich, sticky and smacky. the rustic green and raw hop character also speaks to czech pils, and the acid in tingling throughout with some lactic and sulfuric egg shell and mineral roughness, though the medium-level sweetness helps.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2015
* Hopfig-mildes, leicht brotiges aber sehr sffig-wrziges trbes Bier. Lecker, aber nicht zu tief.
