TEJA (3257) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2017
Sampled at Zum Waldnaabstal resturant in Neuhaus. Small off white head. Light opaque golden color. Malty and little sweet taste and mild bitterness.

[email protected] Waldnaabtal, post-3. Okt. Odd peach yoghurt nose, dirty yeast and earth. Body quite watery, with bitter hints of metallic lemon rind, white bread, earth and nettle. Oddly, still drinkable, but all over the place. At this point I did begin to get a lambiek territory feel from Zoiglland: anything can happen when both terroir, fermentation and coolship are given free reign...

New 2015 Zoiglwirt serving at his own courtyard across Bahler’s, Tag der Kommunbrauer 10/2015. - Betrays some of its Bahler provenance in the phenolic-rubbery "Islay" nose, but then goes off onto a more pleasing honeygolden and herbal-bitter flavour profile, with a distinct soapy finish. Odd how this was nearly-but-not-quite the same quasi-wild brew as the one served across the street the evening before.

Moravius (1441) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2015
Vom Faß im Hotel Waldnaabtal, 20.5.2015. - Hellgelb, nur schwach trüb, mit einem wahren Gebirge von zähem Schaum, der bis zuletzt in Form von kleinen Hügeln auf dem Bier steht. - Schwacher, unaromatischer Geruch. - Antrunk dünn und dominiert von etwas künstlicher Zitronenschale, die eindimensional und penetrant wirkt. Keine Malzsüße. Dünner Körper, schwach rezent. Abgang gut bitter aber ohne neue Aromen. Längerer zitronenschalebitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schwacher Zoigl, gerade noch trinkbar. Es hätte mir zu denken geben sollen, daß alle anderen Gäste ein anderes Bier bestellten ...

Draft @ Hotel and der Waldnaab. Pours hazy yellow with a creamy head. Nose is hay and butter. Tart and buttery flavor. Completely off.

At the hotel. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with diacetyl and a herbal hint. Sweet malty flavour with a fruity hint. Diacetyl and a sour hint at the finish

TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Revisited this one during our latest adventure in Zoigland, only to find it in horrible condition. Aside from the thick, lathery head, I have nothing positive to say about this. The beer was riddled with off notes such as vinegar, Red Delicious apple, and decaying hay. Rotten fruit and vinegar abounds, as does papery malt on a very sugary, limp body. DMS is rampant along with some acetaldehyde. Zero hop presence, dirty malt. Finishes flabby and apple-sweet with oppressive DMS. Totally offensive. This had my stomach churning after one tiny sip. Judging from the recent ratings, this is consistently poor, so I am amending my score

Draught @ Hotel Waldnaab in Neuhaus, 2009: Yellow gold appearance. Tight white head with spotty lace. Soft, bready, mineralic aromas. Intensely peppery, as well, with notes of lemon rind, uncured hay, honeysuckle and mild sulfur. Pleasant mouthfeel, snug carbonation. Sharply sulfury and peppery with a palate-scrubbing mineralic snap mirrored by equally vivid pils malt (toasted hay) kissed with faint biscuit. Some lemon cake heft, as well. Hops are floral and delightfully polished, boasting ample succulence along with a semi-coarse peppery and herbal accent. So little time for note-taking when a beer is this quaffable. Rustic, charming, fun. (3.8/5)

motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2012
on tap at the hotel, zoigl tag 2009 and 2010. golden with a light haze and a vague head; somewhat musty aroma of soggy tea leaves and old tins of peaches; grainy and quick with a tinny bitterness; left me a little underwhelmed compared to some of the other great offerings in neuhaus

Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Süß-herber Antrunk, eher unauffällig. Recht mild, wenig herb, der Hopfen ist angenehm gestreut. Hellmalzig, ok, absolut nicht außergewöhnlich. 10/9/9/9//9
