My RBESG08 journey started, if you look at ratings, at an Austrian gas/rest station with a Zipfer and it finished at another, with another Zipfer. Ogi provided this so thanks to him! From the can, in the car. Heh. Pale golden body. Appley nose, sourish hop, weak malt. Light green apple taste, scant malt. A bit harsh. Hoppy aftertaste.

Rating from an ice cold bottle (thanks to ohmper’s recommendation) of Zipfer Ein Mark Glas Heller Freude Original Import secured at Binny’s Beverage Depot in Plainfield, Illinois: It pours a very pale yellow body with an initially tall fizy head that rapidly reduces to nothingness. No lace. It has a very light aroma, a bit bready with faint traces of grassy/herbal hops. Watery. It’s flavor, also light, is sweet and bready with a grassy, metallic bitterness. Not offensive, but one was enough.

heemer77 (5174) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Medium, slightly hazy gold with a thin bright white head. The nose is sweet and a little meaty with bologna. There is also some character of dusty old books mixed with hints of apples. The taste has some more of that dusty old book character. There is also some bread crust. Hints of sweet potato sneak through. Meh.

Kita (1464) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Clear pale yellow color with massive frothy white head and lively carbonation. Malty aroma with hints of fruity hops, unfortunatelly of detergent, too. Sweet and sour malty start, followed by citrus notes. Mouthfeel is still relatively plain, while aftertaste is quite hoppy. Medium bodied, thin texture and average carbonation.

0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. Light golden with stable head. First sip was bitter but the rest quite enjoyable. No rocket science and I’m not that friend of rice-stretched beers.

0,5 liter fles uit Oostenrijk. Goudgeel pils redelijke kraag. Aroma is niet sterk aanwezig maar ruikt wat fris. Smaakt als een goed pilsje met redelijke afdronk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright golden yellow, with a bright shiny head. Bitter wet cardboard flavour. Alcohol shows and detracts. Not a recommendation.
