3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Light taste, flavours of rice and mild lemon fruits. Okay-like taste but nothing special.

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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
