2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Typical German pil appearence with rocky white head. Rather impure taste for a German beer. I notice that hop extract is listed as an ingredient on the lable. Not how I remenber thse beers from 20 years ago.

Pilsner com creme denso mas pouco duradouro. No aroma e no sabor, lúpulo discreto e leve malte. o Final é longo e levemente amargo. Refrescante.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, BB 05/2008, luckily it was a freebie. Clean pale gold body, small white foam. Slightly cardboardy/grainy malt aroma, some bread and the faintest indication of hops lending some hope. Soapy texture, moderate carbonation, medium body, drying throughout. Sugary malt body, bit of grainy bread flavour, with just a hint of hop spice in the background to keep me relatively interested. Nothing special, even if it is out of date.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Quite disappointed with this one. Was looking forward to feeling this about my mouth, but never followed through with a good hoppy lager taste, which I would have liked. I’m far too fussy these days.

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.
