jonas (5772) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2006
Slightly flowery, otherwise tinny hop aroma. Pale golden, foamy white head. Watery corny - unexiting.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 31, 2006
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.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2006
Clear pale golden body with a compact white head. Hops on the nose while the taste is mainly malty. Plain but enjoyable.

pivnizub (9004) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2006
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....................

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2005
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!

highlandlad (1418) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2005
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.

asheft (2549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
[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.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Oh man. Zipfer. Drank many rounds of this in Innsbruck while bar hopping with random people from Wisconsin and the north of England. Classic.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2005
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

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2005
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.
