3.53/5  rDev +17.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured from the 500mL can. 2.5 fingers of pure white head on top, and plenty of carbonation visible.

Aroma: Sweet faintly citrusy smell of lemons and maybe green apple...

Taste: Sweet with bready malt, finishing with a tinge of lemony/fruity hops. Very smooth with little or no bitterness in there.

Awesomely drinkable, but nothing special tastewise, and somewhat expensive.

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.

just a smidgeon better than the standard euro lager, i found zipfer to have more character than i was anticipating. notthing to go gaga over, but was still ok in my book.

the thing i liked most about this beer was that is was a little more fruity and floral than the usual lagers. quite zesty, some summer fruits there and a decent but not huge floral hop presence both in taste and smell. had a pretty fair malt aspect also. didnt look like anything out of the ordinary, but i was happy with what i was drinking. i finished my six pack and was happy to go back for more at a later stage. the ABV isnt noticed in the drinking, and has a good crisp, slightly hoppy finish that goes along nicely with fizzy carbonation. like the bottle too. ive noticed kronenbourg 1644 have copied this since.

i enjoyed zipfer, it had something different to others of the variety that impressed me on a certain level. sure you can get a better beer, but this is one to give a good going over when you dont want to get too serious.
