omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 21, 2012
Very pale straw colour with little on the nose. Tastes very manufactured and chemical. Thin. Here I was thinking I was being unkind on the aroma, and it went downhill from there.

0.5 l can. Shares alll the characteristics of an average commercial pale lager, but with a bit more hops in aroma and taste than the usual. These bitterish hops scent/taste make it slightly above average for me.

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.

Aroma is of hops as is the flavour which is relatively light. Just a servicable lager but as an import it’s a bit expensive.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2003
Very pale colour, not much head but some clumpy lacing on the glass. Very little aroma, some cooked spaghetti. Lean but solid malt flavour. Dryish, balanced finish, some hops in there. Light body. Nice, but hardly exciting.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
Flaske 33 cl. Gylden hælde med hvidt hoved. Livlig kuldsyre. Aroma og smag af malt og humle. Eftersmagen er let bitter.

2.6
zenkis (834) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours pale golden, clear with medium white top, light lacing, frothy foam. On nose it comes below average intense sweet malty with minimal herbal, grassy hopping. Taste is semisweet, more bitter, hops here than in aroma. Finish is light dry, mild bitter, herbal, light carbonation. Medium bodied, not watery palette for light lager type - nice. In hot summer day I would say it is very competitive pale lager, most in taste.

Oh man. Zipfer. Drank many rounds of this in Innsbruck while bar hopping with random people from Wisconsin and the north of England. Classic.
