StueyD (1233) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006
A light amber yellow beer with a slight white head. A clean, dry hoppy aroma in the nose with a slightly wheaty finish. The taste is again dry hop, and the wheatiness is present again, with a slight fruity smoothness to the finish.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden with small white head. Malty aroma with a fruity-malty flavor. Light hoppy finish. A decent beer, but why someone bothers to import it to Norways poor beer-scene is a mystery to me. There are hundreds of more interesting beers than this one to choose from if you plan to import.

scotty (1060) - SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Furstenberg! Another beer that featured a lot during my youth! It seemed to be available in every pub I went into in Glasgow, granted, I’ve not been out in Glasgow for years, so it might still be for all I know! Anyway, it was one of the first genuine German beers I’d tasted, and I thought it was fantastic.This bottle was bought in Asda, and I was expecting a lot from it...still a cracker I think, malty and with good hop balance..a fine lager...takes me back to the time when I.....etc, etc,and so on and so forth!

Had this in Austria. With pizza. Kebab pizza. At least the beer was refreshing. Decent, even in a pizza joint served in a proper glass.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2005
Warning contains hop extract. Pale yellow without a head. A bit of hoppiness in the aroma. Some slight malt in the taste but mostly stale bitterness. Probably the worst German beer I’ve had.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Pale yellow color with a healthy white head. Almost no aroma. Flavor had a hint of good maltiness, but all said and done it might as well been another Chinese lager.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2005
330 ml bottle, now available in Norway. ABV is 5.3%. Clear pale golden colour, decent to moderate head. Flowery aroma of aromatic hops, notes of honey, grass and fresh plums. Flavour is less interesting - moderate grassy hops with a certain fruity sweetness. Easy drinking, but no masterpiece.

ALLOVATE (2466) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2005
Unsure if I have the right beer or not (Brown bottle, white label, 5.3% ABV). Pours a crystal clear pale straw with no head, bar some islands of white bubbles. Very clean malty aroma with underlying fruity esters and grassy hops. The esters in the aroma follow into the mouth, with bananas, lemons and watermelons dominating the malt and light honey flavours of this light bodied Lager. Crisp, clean, and finishes with a short lived malty sweet swallow. Simple, balanced and lightly refreshing, this could easily be a great Summer quaffer.
