I loved the 'hoppy' pilsner taste--very different from the other 'hoppy' beers such as Urquell, but fresh and having some character. Much better than a lot of the more bland beers that pass themselves off as pilsners. Bit of a strange aftertaste, but I liked it nonetheless.

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

Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is almost nothing. Very clean. Flavor is quite dry, clean. A tasty pils.

Comes in a unique twist off bottle, very nice. It is really fresh, it just became available in the USA I believe. Pours into my Veltins glass with a deep yellow/gold, a nice white head rises far above the rim and produces some nice lacing. The smell is grainy, with medicinal hops, but mostly malt in the scent. Taste is a nice crisp light lager flavor, with a good maltiness but with subtle bitter hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit fuller than most Euro Pale Lagers. Overall its a decent Euro lager that is cheap and would be good for a party beer, impress someone with the fancy bottle. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-27-2009 20:10:28

The bottle I have is labelled "Zipfer" and underneath "Ein Glas Heller Freude". More of a helles than a pale lager. Pale yellow color with thin head, grassy aroma and slight bitter hay in the flavor. This is a good summer quaff. Really enjoying this one.
