Pour very clear pale yellow. Aroma is sweet, with lots of malt. Flavour is definitely more hoppy than the aroma. A Citric hoppyness giving the beer a sour edge.

From the three Zipfers I tried in Austria this was propably the best. A good lager. Light yellow/golden color , very nice foamy white head. Malty and hoppy. Not bad.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2006
0.5 L bottle, ’bbe’ Jan 07. Light in colour, scarce sparkle, lacy and well-sized froth. Hoppy aroma with a good malt note underneath. Dry, hoppy taste with a light citrus note. Gentle but lasting bitter AT. Drying finish, a bit watery body.

HermanW (1059) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2006
Not my favorite. There is better in Austria. I am from Holland and Austria is a perfect country for hollidays. This beer has a strange taste.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2006
A secret favorite of mine, nice flavor to this one, hopped quite well for the style, malty aftertaste, great with meat dishes(sausages). Great drinker.

The Perfect Beer. Hot summer days laying amongst the Austrian mountainscape are incomplete, painful, and nearly intolerable without this beer. Low-ratings can be understood as American cultural impoverishment. Bottom-Line: superbly balanced, refreshing brew. Prost!
