rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2006
Pale yellow colour, low carbonation, cloudy. Resin, pine, butter, tobacco and spice aromas; bitter taste with resin, tobacco, pepper and wood aromas; very bitter finish with wood, resin, hop, spice and pepper aromas. A wonderful, light, very hoppy beer - like a top-quality Franconian Kellerbier. One of the best lagers Ive ever had. 89 out of 100 on my scale.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 October 2009: the first and last zoigl of the night. first impressions were a bit wonky as they had just begun pouring and the carbonation and body seemed flabby and lifeless. but later that night its conditioned had changed remarkably and it was "on". appearance was hazy golden wheat with a rocky and soft fine-bubbled white head. nose is malt/grain-rich with spiced / rustic honey, apples, butter and hay, with snappy malt and a minerally and zesty yeast quality. amazingly fresh and vibrant, exceptionally deep and complex, and immeasurably drinkable. froth and rich texture, perfectly mashed, perfectly structured. i drank a lot of this later during the night. (4.3)

August 2014: We wedding crashed Zoiglstube Bahler on a Saturday night, sneaking inside to taste a small glass and being told to sit outside next to the wedding guests where they poured us a small glass of the Zoiglbier. Unfortunately it was in terrible shape. Strong diacetyl, lots of sugar, flabby mouth feel. Boo on this. (2.4)

bartlebier (3631) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
[email protected] on the eve and after the Neuhauser Tag der Kommunbrauer, before the storm 02-04-10/2015. - - 1st sample on Friday: Deep golden-greenyellow pour, dense white cap. Amazingly "wild" nose, bretty pollen, daffodil and dandelion flowers on a summery meadow - near-saison like (Saison de Cazeau) - fascinating. At the same time some rubbery smoked notes, near-medicinal like an Islay whiskey - must be that coolship? Lots of confidently bitter milk thistle notes (Saison Dupont), hints of smoked rubber on thick, honey-drizzled pilsner malts. - 2nd batch, post onstorm 04/10/2015 had much less of this wild profile and shows how much batches can differ even at the same Zoiglwirt. Common theme: bitter noble hops (melissa, nettle, thistle milk, dandelion) meet dry vegetable oil, honeylike palate. The most captivating and memorable of all W-Bach and Neuhuser Zoigls this weekend.

on tap at zoigltag in 09 and 10, usually worth settling in here for a couple. looks great - faintly hazy golden with a steady white head; aroma of hay, passionfruit nectar and sandstone; crisp and invigorating, grassy, cumquat with some lurking butterscotch. excellent drinking

Tap. Sweet buttery malt aroma. Mostly clear golden yellow color with a small head. Sweet creamy malt and moderately bitter grass hops flavor. Very nice - the hoppiest Zoigl Ive had.

downender (8189) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2011
At Beim Bahler, Neuhaus 11/07/2011. Deep, clear gold with a frothy white head. Biscuit malt aroma with a touch of citrus fruit and dusty hop. Flavour had more fruit, a touch of caramel leading to a hoppy, bitter finish. Excellent stuff.

JorisPPattyn (9667) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2006
Little white head; golden colour with a very slight haze. Terribly malty, grassy nose, slightly smokey. Sweet initially, but with a very fine hoppy lining, especially coming up in the finish. Light, but grist slickness, refreshing. This is UNBELIEVABLE! Der Doppelbock upped everybody with this super addition to the knowledge here. And it was worth all the trouble, IMO.

DerDoppelbock (22) - Aachen, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2006
Diesen Zoigl habe ich in einer 1l-Flasche mit nach Dresden genommen, wobei das im Bezug auf das Gebinde wohl eher einem Syphon gleicht. Stark wrziger und malziger Geruch, deutliche Spuren des Karamellmalz. Ebenfalls starke Wrze im Geschmack, gut gehopft, karamellmalzig und SEHR herber Abgang. Feines Bier!

rauchbier (3830) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2006
Draught, at Beim Bahler in Neuhaus, October 2006. Faintly hazy gold, moderate thin white head and gentle condition. Restrained sweet malt and dominant peppery hoppiness in the aroma, pleasantly yeasty-sweet in the mouth with a developing caramel note and a building but restrained hop bitterness. Long dry and bitter finish that comes both from the hops and the yeastiness. Much drier and hoppier than the Zoigl across the river in Windischeschenbach. "

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Slighly hazy, mostly clear, deep gold with foamy head. Aroma is worty-sweet and yeasty. Not the most sophisticated zoigl but still nice. The body is sturdy as are the maltz and the overall impression is sweet, yeasty and sticky but balanced.
