2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle labelled as Zipfer Original from a supermarket in Pecs, Hungary. ’slightly hazy medium yellow colour, small mostly diminishing frothy white head and virtually no lacing. Aroma of moderate malts with cookie and nutty notes accompanied by light floral hops and a bit of dough and nutmeg. Taste is moderately acidic, with a lightly bitter finish with a slight alcoholic feel, medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Was somewhat shocked, I assumed it was another uninteresting bulk lager but there was even some yeast and character to it, more hopping and it would’ve been way above three even.

500ml can labelled as 'Zipfer Original'. Grassy, grainy aroma. I think this is the first Austrian beer I have ever tasted, seems pretty anonymous to me, although it isn't a bad beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 Smell of slight skunk, dishwater and stale socks. I maybe getting quite harsh on mainstream lagers. But don't stop me yet...
Very yellow colour and little head. Taste isn't bad really. Bit Watery, but some aftertaste that reminds of international Dutch offerings. Nothing special, but not all that bad.
Re-rate: no, notes, but new numbers. Better than I remembered, but not special still.

0,33l hana @ Freizeit Vienna. Kirkas lähes haaleankeltainen. Tuoksussa humalaa, vähän pitävyyttä, mallasta. Maussa mallasta, humalaa, vähän leipää. Tylsähkö, mutta ei varsinaisesti pahaa.
