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. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Oh man. Zipfer. Drank many rounds of this in Innsbruck while bar hopping with random people from Wisconsin and the north of England. Classic. dwyerpg (6497) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is almost nothing. Very clean. Flavor is quite dry, clean. A tasty pils. drmet (1053) - GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016

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.

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.
