Impression: First time at the pub which formerly served Zoigl brewed in the Communal brewery in town. It’s sadly closed down and was brewed in the Falkenloch-Bräu up the street for a number of years. It is now apparently brewed at the larger regional brewery in town, Kaiser-Bräu. It’s a gorgeous pour nonetheless with a chiffon like rocky head which lasts forever. Oddly, it’s quite the fizzy pour considering the head and time spent pouring it. Obviously, locals like it so. It’s got a nicely balanced palate with a hint of roast and fair hopping. It’s slightly fruity and quite refreshing. It’s certainly an easy drinking session beer with a moreish finish. Second one a notch less fizzy and malt shines. Quite nice.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
