Clear light golden color with some white head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma has clean malt, bread crust and a hint of honey. Taste starts slightly sweet and malty but the hops kick in and balance out the beer quite well. Unfortunately there are also some stale grains and cardboard. Light to medium body with medium to soft carbonation. It has a good potential but it has the typical macro flaws.

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.
