Impression: This was the the first Zoigl after the long 14k hike from Falkenberg through the amazing Waldnaaptal Nature Reserve and a beauty it was. It was surprisingly clear for a Zoigl and quite light in color. Though primarily a malty brew, it didn’t lack for hops in the the dry bitter finish. While not typical of the style, much like the other Neuhaus Zoigl I have had the pleasure to try, it’s more hoppy than most from its twin town Windischeschenbach.
Care for another Zoigl?
