(on can) Very good after a good 3 hours gardenwork, but hey....Pale yellow, disapearing white head.Weak on te aromas, bit´o´malts. Nicely carbonated,dosen´t get burby,don´t have a finish. Like the catchfrase on the can; "Ein glas heller freude" "a glass of bright happiness....

Bottle. As ‘Zipfer Original’. Pours yellow with a diminishing white head. Sweetish, slightly dry aroma. Malt, hops and cereals. Same goes for the flavour. Milky and apple notes in the mildly bitter finish. 06-07-07.

hrossrm (20) - Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Poured from can. Pours a clear yellow-gold with very minimal carbonation and a very minimal head. Smells very grassy and slightly hoppy. Taste is actually a little complex. Malty up front, finishing hoppy and a little sweet. Kind of intriguing. Nevertheless, I lump it in with a lot of the other Austrian beers I’ve had. They all taste remarkably similar. Ever heard of variety, Oesterreich?

mkel07 (3093) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2010
330ml bottle. A soft flat white head. Body looks a little thin with aromas of malt and straw coming through. Strong taste with a medicine aftertaste that lingers. Not very tasty and a little boring.

WalterSobchack (8) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 21, 2012 does not count
Unverständlicherweise weit verbreitet. Fahle, sehr helle Färbung, schlank (eher dünn) im Antrunk, wässrig. Aroma schwer auszumachen und wenn faßbar, dann eine Mischung aus alkoholisch und, je nach Abfüllung, metallisch bis hölzern. Insgesamt unausgewogen, Gebraute Langeweile mit... ja was eigentlich...

bouclier (12) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 19, 2004
Tried it under the Zipfer Orginal name. Pale yellow colour, little to please the nose, a bit of hops and a bit of malt. Fresh but short in aftertaste.

Bottle brown, 660 ml
Appearance: Pours very bright, shiny golden body, urine like, with white, small, foamy head that decreases quickly and mostly to a small cloud floating on the body surface, carbonation is medium, body is clear, no significant lacing at all, body looks thin in its density. there is something floating in the body of the beer like very small fragments of don’t know what it is!!! Like hair from barber’ s dust bin.
Aroma: Milky, malted barley, fresh hops, clean hops, crispy malts, citrusy, lemon, hoppy and carbonated on the top, aroma typical for Premium Lager, a bit dull, soapy, nothing surprising or special.
Flavour: Bitter, fresh hops, quite dry, grainy, noticable barley malts, grapefruit, lemon, accidic, tonguy a bit, clean, flavuor of not sophisticated lager with some traces of Pilsener like flavuor, refreshing, good to dine with, strenghtening your apetite, well balanced, quite nice bitter lager. Finish duration is average.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery to dry, carbonation is lively on palate and beer seems accidic, finish feel is chalky, grainy, with mineral, hoppy nose, light alcoholic, an impression of a kind of heavy beer.

Finn (4033) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Boks 500ml. Gave fra Rune. Veldig lys gylden. Ser ut som eplesaft med litt bobler. Litt skum som raskt flater nesten helt ut. Syltynn aroma av gress. Smaken er veldig vassen. Litt malt & mais. Antydning til bitterhet etter hvert. Vasken fikk mest.

Typical premiun lager, with a very weak aroma, taste and coloration. Nothing more to say...
