MrOrla (2636) - Odense C, DENMARK - APR 12, 2017
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.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
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.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2015
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 its minerally, snappy, and crisp. (3.7)

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
Draughts@Oberpflzer 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 Werthers 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.

Moravius (1238) - Beijing, CHINA - MAY 27, 2015
Frhschoppen beim Binner, 22.5.2015. - Schnes Braungelb, leicht trb; gekrnt von einem Berg sahnig-lockeren Schaums. - Schne hopfenwrzig-herbe, zart rauchige Nase, nur leichte Fruchtigkeit (Orangenschale). - Im Antrunk zarte Karamelse und angenehm herber Hopfen, perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt. Schwach rezent, schlank und weich im Mund, geht runter wie l. Im Abgang schn trockene, nicht besonders fruchtige aber hopfenherbe Bittere, zart rauchig. Sehr langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ausgezeichneter Zoigl, schn hopfenherb und etwas hopfenwrziger als die anderen. Woher wohl die rauchige Note kommt? Hier wurde doch gewi kein Rauchmalz verwendet ...

TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), 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 doesnt 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.
