UPDATED: MAR 10, 2010 The aroma is weak with perfume and corn like malt. The appearance is pale gold with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a metallic bitterness and a grassy-floral finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is not just like your run of the mill lager, it’s worse.

A pale lager with attributes like many others. Smooth in the mouth. Skunky aftertaste.

rubbishystuff (1846) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Michelob looking bottle labeled Glas Heller Freude Original Import 5.4%. . . Sometimes it has this faint corn like smell. Other than that a pretty standard euro-pale lager. Serving: Bottle

edpeg (828) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2012
Pale yellow with white rocky head. Aromas cardboard, sweet malts, starch. Medium full-bodied in the mouth , smooth carbonation. Taste sweet malts, metallic, starchy. Hints of hops and dryness in the finish. Mouth-feel is good. Not very interesting, rather typical pale lager, but somewhat balanced. My bottle said "Heller" 5,4 ABV and has rice in it.

bartlebier (1734) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2013
50cl can, bought in Interspar on account of label mentioning "Gebraut mit Naturhopfen"... Pours a pillowy piss yellow, chemical/plastic fumes arise through sickly sweet mash malts; mouthfeel of adhesive cardboard, bandaid; metallic hop kick sets in late in overdrive. A drainpour desaster - please somebody explain how this reached 94% as a Pale Lager?

(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....

NosirIwont (1964) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2007
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 (3404) - 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...
