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).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle ( comes as a "Glass heller Freude"): Pale golden, thin but stable white foam, sticking to the glass; sweetish grainy/malty nose with a tinge of grassy hops and dust; faint sweetish-malty flavour with a distinctive, but mild bitterness; slightly bitter finish with a tinge of citrus. Not overwhelming, but quite pleasant and refreshing....................

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.

3.2 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.

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.
