2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, labeled Original Import, 5.4%. It pours a slighlty chill hazed orange-golden body under a minimal layer of off-white bubbles. Fruit-syrupy sweetish nose with grains. Sweet flavor too, too sweet I think, with grains as a backbone, and a little bitterness lingering. The bitterness is overpowered by the sweetness all the way though. Medium body and appropriated carbonation considering the sugary feeling. Far from impressing, but not bad. Lacks on quenching qualities I think. 091102

Can, 5.4%. Lagery aroma, hint of hops. Almost clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour has a little bisquity malt and spicy hop flavour, but also some rough flavour hop. There is even a little hop bite in the finish, but without the fresh hop flavour that should come along with it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a short lived white head.
S: I can smell the skunk before I even pour the beer. Lots of sulfur on the nose, and some definite grassiness. Some decent sweetness underneath with some mild bread and some corn.
T: A lot of grassy hops with a fair amount of bitterness. The skunkiness is still there and certainly off-putting. However, the beer is sweet overall and has a nice bit of malt in addition to the adjunct sort of flavors.
M: Fairly light in body with a medium to high level of carbonation.
O: Could have been pretty good, but the skunkiness just really ruined it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Laut Dose "die Spitzensorte der Brauerei Zipf". Dem stimme ich nicht zu, schlecht ist es aber nicht. Insgesamt ist dieses Bier ziemlich mild. Dezente herbe und ein säuerlicher Abgang runden dieses Bier ab. Trinkbar ja - den Märzen dieser Firma trinke ich jedoch um einiges lieber!
