stevoj (1956) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 28, 2012
The bottle I have is labelled "Zipfer" and underneath "Ein Glas Heller Freude". More of a helles than a pale lager. Pale yellow color with thin head, grassy aroma and slight bitter hay in the flavor. This is a good summer quaff. Really enjoying this one.

McTapps (3556) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Light taste, flavours of rice and mild lemon fruits. Okay-like taste but nothing special.

MichaelAwesome (3556) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2012
0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. Light golden with stable head. First sip was bitter but the rest quite enjoyable. No rocket science and I’m not that friend of rice-stretched beers.

omikr0n (692) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours pale yellow color with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is malty with some hops and grass. Taste is malty, earthy with some grass and a hint of hops. Aftertaste is dry bitter.

Jimthechap (1539) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 12, 2012
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.

joergen (20476) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2012
Can in a hotel room in Vienna. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Malty aroma of grain with notes of alcohol. Malty flavour of hay and caramel with notes of hops. Sweet finish.

kevnic2008 (7569) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2012
Nothing special about it, but nice to drink, at least it was refreshing on a hot night. Test of 24.07.2005.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2012
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.
