UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Bottled is alright stuff, u can drink a reasonable amount on any occasion. 5.3% also.
On draft however this is excellent stuff, good body great flavour and had me on my back in no time. Asked the % at the bar and was told 5.5-5.9% as it alters apparently.

Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival.
Pale golden colour. Sweetish nose, with glue notes. Papery mouthfeel, glue-ish flavour. The job had to be done.

Bottled. Consumed at MaBell’s, St. Andrews, Scotland said to be one of the local drinking spots of none other then Prince William who is studying there. Golden, no head at all. Grainy, corn aroma. Pretty crap beer it must be said. Chemical flavours that leave a sour taste in your mouth. My brew was also 5.3%ABV.

No me da mas. Una rubia del monton. Le gustara a los tradicionales de la cerveza alemana.

One of best standard lagers I’ve ever had. The taste is fairly common, the beer is malty, refreshing and amazingly balanced.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mine also says 5.3% ABV. Poured light gold, with a decent white head. OK retention. Skunky aroma straight after opening, but it mellowed to mildly fruity clean malt after a few minutes. Thin watery mouthfeel. Quite tastless, just balanced bland lager. Little bit of a sweet aftertaste. Refreshing (its warm today) and clean.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Mine says 5.3% ABV on the bottle. PGC under a large white head. First beer I've rated with an opening aroma faintly reminiscent of the rubber from a new balloon or a new rubber glove. Aroma becomes a touch fruity when warmed. Thin watery unfulfilling body. Bland to weak floral hops and candy sweetness. Entirely forgettable.

Beer from the black forest! Well I hope it tastes better over there than it does here! It wasn't offensive and it went down alright but I don't need to revisit it anytime soon.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Skunky aroma, golden colour, good frothy head. Not so much flavour, just a little bit malty and hoppy. Very watery.

One of the three German breweries with a royal connection, the Fuerstenburg brewery has been brewing for public consumption since 1283. That's a long time to have been making such a bog standard lager!
