bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
50cl bottle bb10/2014. Another near-anonymous beer with a cheap, unmotivated label straight from the 80s - welcome to Fürstenberg sub-par contract range. Weird but not unpleasant lemonade-fruity nose, verging into banana-orange milkshake. Taste brings on more of those almost Kölsch-style fruity malts and an Ok dose of complimentary hops. Watery palate, some off-flavours like a slight alcholic zing and vegetable. Otherwise a fair macro-Kölsch, inadvertently brewed in SW Donaueschingen...

neur0 (1111) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2013
(Flasche) Es hat eine sonnengelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, karamellig, pappig mit weiner sehr leichten würzigen Note. Der Geschmack ist schlank und wie das Aroma. Die Bittere ist eher leicht und nach dem Abgang bleibt eine leichte Adstringenz zurück.

kevnic2008 (11414) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2012
Light, thick head with slightly lace. Soft and balanced taste, not enought hops aroma for pilsner. In aftertaste you can find a bit more malt.

pivnizub (10184) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle (with the label of the former Bärenbräu Schwenningen): Pale golden, almost clear, lazy carbonation, small persistent white head; sweet grainy to malty nose with some herbal hops in the background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, pretty soft; shy hoppy edges in the grainy-bitter finish. Not bad, but not very Pilsner-like.....

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2008
(bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Clear, pale golden colour with a fluffy foamy white head. Medium-sweet malty and subtle fruity nose with light hoppy notes in the background. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Solid malty base with herbal hoppy accents and light fruity (citrus, pine apples); dry, slightly sweet, moderately bitter and slight tart finish. Mediocre mild Pilsener by German standards (03.03.08).

Quack-Duck (9181) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2007
bottle. Clear golden yellow with a medium-size head. Very hoppy, full-bodied and slightly malty. Much better than expected, a decent brew.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2006
Odd label on this offering from Fürstenberg; is it a now defunct breweries beer reborn or is it a spin-off beer designed for supermarket chains or geographical marketing. Either way, this was actually a pleasant quaffer, one that could easily be the better of this breweries line-up. Poured into a Fürstenberg stein, a decent sized compact white head formed atop a clear, pale, yellowish gold body. Aroma is soft and balanced between bitter, grassy hops, a little citrus and banana?, and some honey. Light and prickly on the tongue with an initial sweetness reminiscent of lemon ’fizz-whizz’. Second mouthful brought on lightly grainy, sour and tangy sweet malts with a good serving of spicy, bitter hops in the back before dropping off short and fresh in the finish. Slowly developed a lightly sweet, floral aftertaste nearing the end of the glass which gave it just a little more character. Above average, refreshing and clean German pilsner; great for a hot summer’s day. (50cL, BBE 07/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2006
Yellow gold, moderate head with moderate lace. Mild green hops and pale malt nose. Malty palate with a moderate amount of bitterness and a dry finish. A nice example of the style, and a pleasure to drink.
