2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly flowery, otherwise tinny hop aroma. Pale golden, foamy white head. Watery corny - unexiting.

I could drink this one no problem. A decent kick to the beer for a continental. Otherwise relatively bland, just a notch or two higher than your average italian version of this.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear pale golden body with a compact white head. Hops on the nose while the taste is mainly malty. Plain but enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle ( comes as a "Glass heller Freude"): Pale golden, thin but stable white foam, sticking to the glass; sweetish grainy/malty nose with a tinge of grassy hops and dust; faint sweetish-malty flavour with a distinctive, but mild bitterness; slightly bitter finish with a tinge of citrus. Not overwhelming, but quite pleasant and refreshing....................

Sweet floral head. Deep straw color with quickly dissapating head. Sweet taste with a nice balance of the very floral hops and rich malt. Would have liked a cleaner finish. Cheers!

Moderate Austrian session lager. Pale gold, short head. Reasonably zesty aroma - some cut grass. Quenching palate, dry finish. Hint of lemony hops amid the malts. Good balance.

[on tap in Salzburg]
Bright, pale straw with a nice, white flanel blanket that produced pretty lacing. Weak aroma of mostly noble hops and a little corn. Bland malt flavour well balanced with low noble hops and a little bit of bitterness at the end. Light body with moderate carbonation and a clean finish. Not offensive, but not very tasty either.

Oh man. Zipfer. Drank many rounds of this in Innsbruck while bar hopping with random people from Wisconsin and the north of England. Classic.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Comes as "Zipfer Original". Quite classical golden lager with a pretty high hoppiness. Not much fuss about this one. 140701

Bottled, pasteurised, 660ml. Yellow gold, lightly carbonated, white head. Initially a very pleasant beer, lemony a touch of hop and a crisp malt. The further through the bottle though, a sweetish, cloying palate develops. Enjoyable, but a bottle to share.
