Had this at a cafe outside Meiming, Austria. Only saw this beer around that locale.

A: Golden clear with good head retention and lacing. Medium carbonation.

S: Moderate Saaz hop aroma.

T: Hints of grassiness along with the hop flavor make it a nice beer.

M: Medium mouthfeel, not at all heavy.

I would class this as a German Pils more than a Czech pils. The level of hops bitterness is more along the lines of a German pils. Nevertheless a very good beer.

Great beer with medium hops. It's enjoyable at all times during the day and I highly recommend it. It's best served cold from the tap ands can be found just about anywhere, especially Innsbruck. Another tasty brew with medium hops from the Austrians.

I found this rarity in the famous kebab-falafel stand of Maschu maschu located near Schwedenplatz in Vienna. Ive never seen it anywhere else. It is mentioned there that it is a special production type of thing.

It is remarkably different than the normal offering or their Märzen. Fresher, crisper, with a smoother and slightly sweet malt backbone, more lively in the nose. However, it doesn't hold up to top Czech Pilsners and as they are actually easier to find in the area, I don't know where Zipfer was going with this one.
