MrOrla (3200) - Odense C, DENMARK - APR 12, 2017
Tap @ at source. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of soft caramel and some bready malts, loads of fruity charater, slight dried fruits, touch of minerals. Taste is light bitter, with loads of fruits and bready charater, slight herbal. Very soft and super clean!

TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2017
Sampled at the Wolframstubn, Windischenbach. Small light grey head. Clear amber color. Clean light rasted malty aroma. Malty taste with a light body and medium bitterness.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Clean toastiness is enhanced by orange marmalade notes in this dryish and bubbly Zoiglbier.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam produces some lacing atop the misty pale amber.
-This is a tad too carbonated to properly let the delicate malts shine.
-As a result, the beer feels drier than it probably is.
-Drinkability is pretty high, of course.
-Subtle herbal hop bitterness seals each sip.

On tap at the brewery pub.

On tap at the brewery. Clear amber colour lasting white head. Cereal caramel typical landbier. Some sweetness some cereal from the field. Yes its ok. Bit rustic. Very clean touch of pepper slight on finish.

Moravius (1289) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - SEP 13, 2016
Vom Faß im Zoigl Am Alten Rathaus, Marktredwitz (eine von mehreren Zoiglstuben in der Umgebung, die von der Wolframstubn Windischeschenbach beliefert werden). - Schönes Rotgold, schwach trüb. - Nase äußerst schwach: erst bei Erwärmung erschnuppert man schwache karamelmalzige und orangenfruchtig-herbe Anklänge. - Antrunk mild toastmalzig mit schöner Karamelsüße. Nur schwache, knapp ausreichende zartfruchtige Hopfenaromen. Durchschnittlich rezent, was für einen Zoigl schon zuviel Kohlensäure ist. Im Abgang sehr milde, leicht orangenfruchtige Herbe. - Angenehm süffig aber dünn und deutlich unterhopft. Da hatte selbst das zur Brotzeit gereichte Bauernbrot mehr Geschmack. Der dünnste Zoigl, der mir je untergekommen ist. (Verkostung: 10.9.2016.)

Beerhunter111 (20468) - P´Castle, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2015
On tap as Eschawicka Zoigl. Leicht trübes orange goldenes Bier mit einer großen leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch angenehm malzig, fruchtig hopfig. Geschmack mild hopfig, getreidig, fruchtig malzig, lecker.

3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
November 2012: draft at Wolframstub’n in Windischeschenbach. Hazy light amber body with a tall, billowy and foamy head.
Spicy, herbal, slightly floral nose. Estery dried fruits and appreciable mossy / woody spiced hops with touch of dried nectarine / peach. Rough and chalky and somewhat tart and crusty. More carbonic / mineralic than I prefer, and the malt has an oat and cereal grain quality. Yeast isn’t the cleanest, but it’s still a decent Zoiglbier overall. 7/4/6/3/14, 3.4

August 2014: draft at Wolframstub’n in Windischeschenbach. Sparkling hazed gold, large bubbled head.
Aroma is honey, hay, yeasty must / sweat. Mineral water brashness with sweet malt. Faint buttery off-notes. Chewy mouthfeel but loose carbonation. Short finish. As carbonic as I remember, and not as raw or grainy as before. 7/4/7/3/15, 3.6
Earlier Rating: 12/20/2012 Total Score: 3.4
draft at Zoiglstubn beim Brucksaler in Neustadt an der Waldnaab
hazed amber body with a thick and creamy buttermilk froth head. creamy, silky, airy carbonation is like drinking a cloud. lightly zingy / zesty dried floral grasses and dried fruit, though has some starchiness and roughness underneath along with some sulfuric / eggy / bacteria notes. juicy up front, strongly drying and turning coarse, starchy and salty late once it has some time to breathe.

omhper (25104) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
Bottled from tap at the brewpub. Hazy deep golden, mid sized creamy head. Fruity grassy nose. Dry with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Minerally with ripe fruit, dough and hay. Long but mild bitterness. Refreshing.

TAR (2760) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2016 Draught at Zoiglstubn beim Brucksaler in Neustadt: Glowing orange liquid. Wispy lace surrounds a broken center of foam. Candyish nose of spicy herbal hops, marmalade, piecrust, browned biscuits, sour/fermenting fruit, fresh flowers and black tea. Lightly husky and fairly candyish. Prickly, thin mouthfeel. Juicy and lightly tart with marmalade and brawny notes of browned poundcake. Plenty of scratchy minerals to accompany the well-attenuated body. Kinda thin towards the center, which lacks the dextrinous heft to aid the lean, crisp and toasty Munich. Quite slippery, also, with a peppered unripe melon dimension. Finishes mostly dry with wood-root-spice hop character accompanied by toasted bread and a caramelized nut sweetness. A skillfully balanced, hugely quaffable, mineral-ladene zoiglbier, although a tad thin and husky at times. A bit of dough in the nose is detected, but overall it’s serviceable.

Earlier Rating: 1/12/2013 Total Score: 3.4 Draught at Wolframstub’n in Windischeschenbach, Nov. 2012: Clear light rufous. Pasty big-bubbled head. Bright and perfumey nose of peach marmalade, pound cake, mineral, floral Hallertauer, and gummy candy. Lovely medley of toasted bread and pecan malt aromatics. Lightly husky, though. Prickly effervescence. Fully malty, initially, with a bouncy pils malt and sweet pecan skin tandem. Crisp edge of toasted bread and vanilla wafer cookie mirrors the candied pecan firmness as underlying hay gently sweetens things with a grassy lushness. Pils character is somewhat flabby and papery, however. Ripe, boisterous and zesty marmalade punch fills the center and adorns the beautifully crisp and well-structured malt core as lustrous hop nectar lags behind. Perceptible huskiness translates to a burnt wood astringency which is exacerbated by the dry attenuation. Dry, deeply toasty finish showcases refined floral nectar which is curbed by a resounding Munich-derived browned biscuit persistence. A pretty enjoyable zoiglbier, but sadly the considerable huskiness is quite the detriment to the otherwise exquisite synergy of flavors.
