2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
300ml vom Fass at Taverna O’ Christos in Wien. Crystal clear, straw body. Shy cover of white, lacing foam. Discreet aromatic nuances of hops and malts. Same goes for the flavour - it’s dry hopped with grapefruit hints and malts beneath. Good lager (04.12.2007).

bottle. Clear golden yellow, medium-size head. Bitter-sweet with resiny hops, solid malty background. Hints of wet cardboard. Not brilliant, but quite allright.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Subtle hops/grain aroma. Dark yellow color and nice white head. Watery, grainy flavor with a slight bitter finish but grew on me as I drank more. Not bad but don’t look too hard for it.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes in a unique twist off bottle, very nice. It is really fresh, it just became available in the USA I believe.
Pours into my Veltins glass with a deep yellow/gold, a nice white head rises far above the rim and produces some nice lacing.
The smell is grainy, with medicinal hops, but mostly malt in the scent.
Taste is a nice crisp light lager flavor, with a good maltiness but with subtle bitter hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit fuller than most Euro Pale Lagers.
Overall its a decent Euro lager that is cheap and would be good for a party beer, impress someone with the fancy bottle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, straw golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up honey and toasted grains, with light earth and lemony accents. The flavor found pale malts and honey at the core with prickly carbonation and lemon zest around.. finished dry and refreshing. Light-bodied and crisp on the palate.. nice flow to it.. good for the style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 330 ml bottle. From Germany.
Name was Zipfer Original Import.
Tastes like a basic pale lager beer. A bit above the average. Quite boring. Well, quite smooth though.
500 ml can. From Wals-Siezenheim, Austria. Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Sweetish aroma with weak maltiness and hoppiness. Flavour is sweet and hoppy. Not too interesting.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light yellow and clear, starts with a white head, not lasting. Kind of unpleasent, sweet aroma. Flavor is a bit better, perhaps some bitterness from hops, metallic. Flavor is ok, the rest not.
