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)...

Bright pale straw color with a high amount of activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs.

Aromas of faint metal, sweet grains, and noble spices. Flavors of sweet malts, lemon, herbal spices. Slightly grassy and bready with a nice sharpness.

Slick light to medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish that lingers a little, ending with a grassy noble spicy feel and faint citrus.

Overall average in quality. A little faint but still enjoyable. Decent flavors with good balance. Slightly flat with passable freshness.

500ml can poured into a nonic pint. Date on the bottom is 07/2015. Imported by German colleagues. Fridge temp.

Pours crystal clear golden with a medium sized, unattractively coarse white head that fades quickly into clots. Medium carbonation. Smell is lager funk, yeasty bread, slight lemon, and a tiny bit of nice, spicy hoppy characteristic.

Taste is dominantly bitter, appropriately crisp. Strong lager funk, maybe slight skunk, but I really appreciate the bitter crispness of this. Nice, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is light, a little coarse, kind of airy. Overall, not bad.
