Appears much like a Euro-lager ought and tastes much the same. Light in aroma, body and flavour with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Pleasant enough but not a show-stopper. Now, a plump naked blonde streaking joyfully across a cricket pitch: that’s a show-stopper.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank in November 2008: Third and final lager in my lager reviewing evening, won hands down against the other two (Quilmes from Argentina and Casablanca from Morroco).
Zipfer Original on the label.
330ml brown bottle, poured into one of my Veltins Pilsner stemmed glasses. It looked very good, deep golden yellow with a large white head which stayed through the drink.
No aroma worthy of note, gets my standard lager 3 for smell.
Crisp, sharp and tangy, a good lager feel and taste to it. Glad I had it last of the three beers in the tasting, it was a lot better than the others. I remember trying it at a Bier Borse in Germany many years ago, it was good then too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours lightly cloudy gold with a slight creamy white head. To me the aroma is like light lemon grass. Near med body. Flavor is bready, with some bitter. Bitter is kind of unusual - could be herb/grass, but I’m not really getting a hint of spice. Finishes fairly dry. Better than many East Euro lagers, but this is from Austria, so maybe not a surprise.
