Tap @ Oberphalzer hof. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of bready malts, light grassy, notes of honey, spicey/herbal touch with some light minerals. Taster is well rounded between flavours, loads of hops and bready malts, super smooth and soft, light bitternes, rather fruity. TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2017
Sampled at the Oberpfälzer Hof, Windischeschenbach as the hous Zoigl.

My Bottom Line:harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Orangey hops and honeyed malts combine over notes of toasted bread crust in this personable Zoiglbier.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy golden amber.
-Carbonation is soft, which makes the mouthfeel appear rounder, smoother.
-Drinkability is optimal.
-The finish is just bitter enough to keep things interesting on the second pint.
On tap at Oberfpalzer Hof.
On tap at Oberpfalzer Hotel Windischeschenbach. Hazy amber colour lasting white head. Some hop some malt on the aroma. Some fullness in the mouth. Light hop on the finish. Fine.

Draft at Oberpfalzer Hof Windisch. (2009-2012) and Beim Heigl in Schirmitz (2014). Mostly clear orange-amber with a white foamy head. Aroma is fruity / juicy with notes of orange jelly. Malt is pound cake, yeast is slightly chalky. Medium body, carbonation is sharp and pointed, finish is short. More sweet than bitter. In decent shape at both Heigl and the Oberpfalzer Hof (who pours this as their own). (3.5)

Bayrischer anstich at Binner Windischeschenbach, November 2015. Hazed honey gold with a short white head. Bright, clean, and hoppy (for Windisch.); toasted grain, nuts, pastries, apricot, dried herbs from the aroma hops.; malt sugar has that wonderful honey-glazed pastry effect, and in the mouth it’s minerally, snappy, and crisp.

Hof, W-bach 10/2015. "Batches brewed together with Binner". Amber-russet pour - the deeper orange variety that sets W-Bach apart from their greenyellow neighbours/rivals in Neuhaus. - Flowery, then fruity malt aromatics ("lieblich"), opening up to drier Sahnekaramell aka Werther’s Echte joined by chalky, near-mineral notes. Wonderful, moreish blend more butterscotch Munich malts and wood-herbal hop notes, buttered bread, a late leafy hop bitterness to round things off. Somewhere in between all that: watery pockets. Quality roast, finishing on buttered breadcrust.
Frühschoppen beim Binner, 22.5.2015. - Schönes Braungelb, leicht trüb; gekrönt von einem Berg sahnig-lockeren Schaums. - Schöne hopfenwürzig-herbe, zart rauchige Nase, nur leichte Fruchtigkeit (Orangenschale). - Im Antrunk zarte Karamelsüße und angenehm herber Hopfen, perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt. Schwach rezent, schlank und weich im Mund, geht runter wie Öl. Im Abgang schön trockene, nicht besonders fruchtige aber hopfenherbe Bittere, zart rauchig. Sehr langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ausgezeichneter Zoigl, schön hopfenherb und etwas hopfenwürziger als die anderen. Woher wohl die rauchige Note kommt? Hier wurde doch gewiß kein Rauchmalz verwendet ... TAR (2761) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Draught at Beim Heigl in Schirmitz: Hazed orange with golden highlights. Creamy and sticky halo of foam. Bright and clean aroma of orange marmalade, flowers, lemon, pecan, minerals and piecrust. Lush carbonation. Soft, refined malt links up with a lustrous and succulent orangey fruitiness, initially. Harmonious interplay of expressive flower nectar and an edgeless base of pils malt, which mimics new-mown hay. Multilayered maltiness spawns deep cookie, toasted bread, and softer toffee kisses. Juicy melanoidins shyly lurk amid silky, lip-smacking Cara-malt sugars. Appetizing contrast of explosive fruitiness and scratchy minerals blend with an invigorating splash of lemony acids. Pervasive fruitiness flourishes atop the lean malt and clean attenuation. Rustic yeast notes enrich the deep toast and lush hay with notable dustiness in the cohesive finish. Another delightful zoiglbier that doesn’t try to wow you with grandiosity or pretentiousness, as singular and well-crafted as it is. Fruity, balanced, minerally, good malt detail, and overall just lovely. jfb (6256) - GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
