Ferdinánd Sörház, Budapest. Világos, arany szín, szép nagy, tömör fehér habbal. Illata malátás, füves és friss. Vizes, könnyen iható sör, amelyben inkább a maláta édessége a döntő, de azért komlós kesernyésség is majdnem olyan szinten jelen van, egészen jó az összhang. Nem nagy durranás, de azért eléggé rendben van, literszámra lehet pusztítani.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 20, 2009
Botled. 4,0 ABV. Ferdinand Lager beer on the label - I hope this is that one that i’ve sampled. Pours pale golden with vanishing head and fizzy appearance. Cooked corn aroma with some faint flowery hints. Medium sweet maltiness with heavy cooked corn tones. Light hoppy dryness in the finish. Worse than i expected.

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2008
bottle from Hypernova Praha-Nové Butovice. Clear golden yellow colour, large and very creamy white head. Malty nose. Rather full malty body, well-balanced with good aromtaic and bitter hops, resulting in a bitter-sweet character. Very slightly fruity with shy hints of apple. Pleasant carbonation. A superb desítka. Very tasty indeed, as are the other beers from Benesov.

pours gold with a small head and hardly any lacing. looks flat. flavor is a mix of a grainy lager with stale hops and pineapple and something. juicy palate with sharp carbonation. weird stuff.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2006
Pours an ever so slightly cloudy golden, and a large white head. Lacks the sulfur in the aroma that the 12° had, and has more floral notes. The body is thin, but pleasant, without any big faults.The finish is wheaty, with a hint of banana. A decent light lager.

JK (5329) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Excellent in its own style and not bad otherwise. Sampled from the tap. Gold and highly carbonated. Long lasting white head. Light hop aroma, and light bitter flavor; light all around. If you called it a pilsner, I wouldn’t call you a liar.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Bright yellow-gold and mostly clear. Head was thinnish. Curious microfloaties swirling about. Fruity, buttery nose. Soft and light body; light carb. Delicate notes of pear, vanilla and butter cookies. Very mild, herbal bitterness provided decent balance. Kind of white wine-like. Not bad, but not very exciting at all, either.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Sold in the states as Ferdinand Lager Beer, 4.0%. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Aroma is moderately malty (bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Body is medium to dark yellow. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. A rather unclean and flimsy rendition.
