Impression:  This isn’t part of the Echte Zoigl group but now that I’ve been to all the “real” Zoiglstuben, I start to look at others when it’s convenient. This one was and I have to say not only was the Zoiglstuben really nice and traditional but the Zoigl was better than at least a couple of the Echte ones. That it’s in Kaufbeuren, only an hour away from where I live is definitely a plus. It’s very balanced with a great malty profile due to five malts being used. The grain element shines through and there’s enough hops in the mix to make for a clean, semi-dry, semi-bitter finish. Worth seeking out if in the area.

Care for another Zoigl?
