Die Spitzensorte der Brauerei Zipf glänzt in hellem Goldgelb und ist schlank im Geschmack. Mit seiner Balance aus feiner Fruchtigkeit, mit seinen feinherben Hopfennoten und dezenten Malztönen ist Zipfer Urtyp der Inbegriff eines heimischen Premium-Biers. 12.2°

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2008
Bottle, 66ml. Pours clear golden, with virtually no head, and minimal lacing. Not much going on for either the nose or the palate: mild hops on both, and insubstantial mouthfeel. Inoffensive, but unmemorable.

Really not sure if this is the one but the ABV says so. IT was a lager but very strong, like the Hamburg area ones.

Szalmasárga színű,közepes habú termék.Nem túl erős illatában érezni a komlót.Ízében is szépen ott van a komló kesernyéssége és az alkohol édessége.Utóíze is kesernyés de van valami érdekes mellékíze,amire nem tudtam rájönni.Egyébként nem rossz.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. A clear, light yellow colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of malts, fruits and a little hops. the taste is malty with fruits like orange and citrus. A little bitter, much to little for a urtyp. The aftertaste is little bitter. Not bad, but in my view not really an urtyp.

50 cL bottle, Zipfer Original. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Crips hoppy and slight grassy aroma. Delicate fruity hops in the initial flavour. Light bitterness showing through. Light bitter and fruity finish. Nice one.

My RBESG08 journey started, if you look at ratings, at an Austrian gas/rest station with a Zipfer and it finished at another, with another Zipfer. Ogi provided this so thanks to him! From the can, in the car. Heh. Pale golden body. Appley nose, sourish hop, weak malt. Light green apple taste, scant malt. A bit harsh. Hoppy aftertaste.

Bottle brown, 660 ml
Appearance: Pours very bright, shiny golden body, urine like, with white, small, foamy head that decreases quickly and mostly to a small cloud floating on the body surface, carbonation is medium, body is clear, no significant lacing at all, body looks thin in its density. there is something floating in the body of the beer like very small fragments of don’t know what it is!!! Like hair from barber’ s dust bin.
Aroma: Milky, malted barley, fresh hops, clean hops, crispy malts, citrusy, lemon, hoppy and carbonated on the top, aroma typical for Premium Lager, a bit dull, soapy, nothing surprising or special.
Flavour: Bitter, fresh hops, quite dry, grainy, noticable barley malts, grapefruit, lemon, accidic, tonguy a bit, clean, flavuor of not sophisticated lager with some traces of Pilsener like flavuor, refreshing, good to dine with, strenghtening your apetite, well balanced, quite nice bitter lager. Finish duration is average.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery to dry, carbonation is lively on palate and beer seems accidic, finish feel is chalky, grainy, with mineral, hoppy nose, light alcoholic, an impression of a kind of heavy beer.

Can 0,5ltr bought it in Austria: Same as the medium but heavier in alcohol and eventually stronger in taste.
