Zipfer Urtyp (500ml Can)
Zipfer is beer of the highest quality with a refreshing, finely hopped flavour. The foundation of the Zipfer brewing recipe is formed by carefully selected hops from the finest garden regions, in combination with outstanding Austrian malt. The experienced touch of the master brewer and a slow maturation process then gently turn this beer into the slimline, lightly hopped Zipfer Urtyp.
Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Crips hoppy and slight grassy aroma. Delicate fruity hops in the initial flavour. Light bitterness showing through. Light bitter and fruity finish. Nice one.
The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesnt vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or youll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
