500 mL can picked up at TBS; best before March 2015. Served well-chilled.
Pours a clear straw-yellow colour, with two fingers of billowing, sparkling white head seated atop. It leaves a series of successive lace rings around the perimeter of the glass as it slowly recedes into a lumpy cap and collar. The aroma consists of bready, crackery pilsner malt and some grassy, somewhat spicy noble hops. It's a nice, clean bouquet.
This is a fairly straightforward pils that I have no strong feelings toward, in either direction. Pale grainy malts and some cracker/biscuity sweetness dominate at first, with a tamed hoppy finish that is mostly grassy with a touch of spice. Dry finish, with a touch of noble hop bitterness that doesn't remain on the palate for long. Light-bodied, with fairly assertive carbonation that provides an appropriate bite for this type of lager. Very sessionable; I have no serious complaints about this one.
Final Grade: 3.4, a passable B-. Fürstenberg Premium Pilsener is a fairly good pale lager, but compared to some of its more accessible imported competitors, it falls a little flat. I'd probably buy this again, but it's not available locally so I can't see it happening any time soon. A middle-of-the-road German lager that I can enjoy, and worth a try if you're an enthusiast, but you wouldn't be missing out on much by skipping it, either.

Pours light straw color with nice half inch frothy head. Smell is sweet and somewhat fruity. Tastes is a little watery, but has a bitterness that lingers on the tongue with is very pleasant. I enjoyed this beer alot and would definitely pick this up again, but unfortunately I picked this up on a trip to Ontario, and have never since this in the states.

500ml can. From Quebec "Biere de la Foret Noire". Best before 08/11.
It pours a clear, pale gold, a very light shade of it, with a sterile-looking foamy white head that leaves only a few bits of lacing.
The smell is suber grainy. Grain, grain, grain, and more grain. There is a little bit of hop twang but not much. For a German Pils, it is pretty cheap smelling.
The flavor is a lot better. It is smooth and bready with a balanced level of hops that even provide a small kick of bitterness in the finish. It is a light, cheap, easy drinker of a pils. But it is still tasty.

3.05/5 rDev -8.1%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5
A: Pale yellow color, fully translucent. Pure white fizzy head. Not much volume at all, not much retention and no lacing at all.
S: Biscuit malts are dominant. Some white bread in this. Corn syrup. Light citrus and herbal hops.
T: Biscuit malts and white bread mostly. Corn syrup, makes me think there might be some adjuncts in this. Light herbal and citrus-y hops. Light taste. More malt and more hops would have helped.
M: Light body with medium to high carbonation. Fits well.
D: As with most beers with lighter taste and lower ABV, this could be drank all day.
Serving type: bottle
