2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (330ml). Labeled Furstenberg Premium Lager. Served chilled. Poured dull gold with a frothy, white head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of sweet/slightly musky malts with wet grain, straw, some corn and a squeeze of lemon. Flavor was sweet malts with a very light bitterness, hay, grain and some honey. Light bodied with lively carbonation, watery texture, dry mouthfeel and a short finish. A touch better than your standard pale lager, which is not saying much.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours pale golden with a decent white head. Grassy hops nose. Sweet malt flavours, but with grassy hop flavours providing some balance. Grainy mouthfeel. Not the worst lager around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Like GMan71 I am not sure this is the right beer. It was called Premium Lager and I am assuming that is the Export. Poured a pale amber yellow with a reasonable white head. Sweet, faintly floral aroma. Medium body with quite fizzy but fine carbonation. Initially sweetish malt with floral hints. Pleasant hoppy bitterness develops. Some grassy, vegetable notes. Pleasant drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Assuming the version available in Australia is the export. Good, white head, just right carbonation. Standard euro larger taste overall but slightly less bitter and more fruity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Very pale golden colour. Crystal clear. Tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Subdued malty aromas. Gentle hop aroma with some grassy notes. Mellow texture balanced by a crisp grassy hop flavour. Quite a lot of hop flavours, but the body is rather light. The beer is very refreshing and I’m sure it’d work nicely as a thirst quencher. Particularly exciting it isn’t, but for a pale lager this is one of the better ones I’ve had in a long time.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Straw body, slightly unclear. Thin white head with bubbles. Notes of malts in aroma and flavour added some sweetness.. Little more than clean tasting and easy drinking (bottle shared with Finn, Tromsø 06.09.2007).
