On tap at Bronwyn in Boston, MA.

This one pours a clear pale yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like sweet malt, crackery malt, light grassy hops, and lemon.

This is a bit too sweet for the style, unfortunately, and doesn't quite have the crispness I really crave out of the style. It's pretty subdued as well, with only a slight touch of bitterness. I didn't hate it, but I'm certainly not going to seek it out again.

This is light bodied, a bit slick, with a typical level of carbonation. It's pretty drinkable.

There are numerous better German pilsners out there. This wasn't too too bad, but it certainly had some flaws.

A pleasure to find a new brewer after a long day of touring Munich on foot. Furstenberg's Premium is refreshing and a bit above average.
Looks are decent, a head of large bubbles and a color that is a deeper pale than typically pils are.
Smells are mostly malt and not that much. Hops finally come through in the Taste which is balanced. Finishes semi-dry and a bit thin. But the bubbles do their job.

My first and probably only from Furstenberg (since they don't seem to distribute except regionally and I don't see myself coming back to Bavaria for a while since this was my first time in 65 years.) Furstenber's website did not have a readily accessible English button, so they get only a cursory review. A 13th Century brewer, they market their beer as a part of cultural events... which seemed to be mostly rock concerts. But, whatever. They are in a small town near Zurich, so barely Bavaria anyway.

Pours a very pale, straw gold. A little head that settles on top. Lazy bubbles.

Nose is very subdued...not much of anything. Faint grain.

Taste is similar....low profile, light malt, slightly peppery.

Crisp, middle of the road carbonation. Easy drinking. No big flaws but nothing stands out either.

Pours a clear light yellow.

Smell is very soft and almost subdued, mostly doughy malt and some sweetness.

Taste is slighty sweet, with some bready maltiness backed up by a soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium and soft, well carbonated.

Overall, a decent pilsner. Just a bit too laid back and a bit boring.

Pours a a pale yellow color, very small top of head that disolves almost immediately. Aroma is lightly sweet and grainy with some bread notes and some spicy and herbal hops. Flavour is similar with a dry and spicy finish and a good lenght in the aftertaste,a little to unbalanced with the bitterness. This beer is medium carbonated with a medium body. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean but a little flat all in all. Overall this is a standard german pilsner, not bad or anything out of the ordinary. Decent enough and enjoyable in the sun.

Furstenberg Premium Pilsener has a thick, white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, golden appearance, fairly heavy glass lacing, and noticeable fine white sediment, thoughout. Aroma is of zesty hops and cracker, and the flavor is of cracker, spicy & bitter hops, and some bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium, and Furstenberg Premium Pilsener finishes crsip and clean. RJT

Pours to give a clear yellow body with an inch of lively white head that quickly fades to nothing. The aroma is grassy, a bit spicy, and somewhat crackery with the rest being dominated by cereal malts. The taste is sharp with hoppiness balanced by a good cereal maltiness, going down smoothly with a bubbly carbonation. Really nice pilsener, I would return to it if it were regularly accessible in my area.

500ml brown bottle

From the appearance, this beer has a very pale yellow color which does not invite to drink it, however it has a good structure with a nice two-finger head (the problem is that the head goes very quickly). The smell is not very intense without special nuances and the taste is bitter and an aftertaste of alcohol remains in the mouth. In the mouth is not very carbonic and it is quite soft. It is an interesting option if you are looking for a fresh beer.

Serving Type: 500 mL Can

A- Pours a clear Pale Golden Colour with a 1/2 finger white head that fades into thin patches. Visible carbonation bubbles coat the glass. No lacing.

S- Bready Pale Malt and fresh cut grass. Quite pleasant.

T- Same as the aroma but with a slight skunkiness. Not off-putting at all, just not ideal.

M- Moderate Carbonation and Light body.

O- A Solid German Pilsener that offers a great look into how a Pilsener can taste without the use of Adjuncts (I'm looking at you BMC)...
