OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2010
0.33L bottle labelled ’Zipfer’ from bestillingsutvalget, Vinmonopolet. Body is shiny, straw colored with a fully diminishing blond head. Modest aroma of sweetish, grainy and bready malts, a hint ogf hay and a faint lemony fruitiness. Light to medium body, with a light malt sweetness and some noticable earthy and grassy hops. Sparkling, if not fizzy in the mouth. Short, dryish, light hoppy finish. Not bad, not exciting either, straightforward and simple.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear yellow with thin fast dissipating white head. Pleasant grassy aroma. Light body, flavour begins well and dissolves into a sicky finish. Not a winner.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Light taste, flavours of rice and mild lemon fruits. Okay-like taste but nothing special.

Wolfbass (1077) - Firenze, ITALY - OCT 9, 2012
Ho dovuto assaggiarla per forza, perchè mi stavo mangiando uno splendido panino col prosciutto e avevo bisogno di mandarlo giù...

pilsnerrogge (2773) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2002
I guess every country’s got their ’Heineken-style beer’, this is Austria’s.

bierkoning (12038) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Very pale colored. Glue in the aroma and a bit of malt and apple. Medium to full bodied. Apple in the flavor. Grainy. Some bitterness that lingers on in the aftertaste, in which the glue returns. Sticky. Can. Grainy, soapy aroma. Grainy, soft flowery flavor with a hint of citrus and a soft hopbitterness. Standard lager.

HenrikSoegaard (12841) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle. Frothy white fair mostly lasting head. Light hoppy aroma, just OK. Light bitter flkavor, short finish. Nice oily palate. OK pale lager but not a 2.7 beer!!!!

Grovlam (4203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle. Head was small foamy white with and average last. Slight lacing in glass. Body was clear light sparkling with an amber reddish colour. Aroma was light, grain, hay, grass. Light bodied with a very thin texture and a soft carbonation. Flavour was slightly bitter with some balancing sweetness. Light bitter finish. I have to agree with HenrikSoegaard, this was a ok beer, but not 2.7!

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. A clear, light yellow colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of malts, fruits and a little hops. the taste is malty with fruits like orange and citrus. A little bitter, much to little for a urtyp. The aftertaste is little bitter. Not bad, but in my view not really an urtyp.
