tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Grainy malts and leafy green hops in the nose. Clear plae gold with shy, white, fully-diminishing head. Sweet, mild, grainy flavour is lightly bitter towards the finish, but doesn’t have the crispness one would expect from a top-notch pils. Light body is somewhat fizzy and watery. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2005
(bottle) Clear body with a pale golden colour and an average frothy white head. Harsh strawy malty aroma with a tinge of grassy hops in the background. Light sweet flavour, malty taste with a bitterdry hoppy finish. Thin texture but fizzy carbonated. Rather unpleasant and decent.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Sample from can at the Mondial. Very, very, very...ok, extremely pale, lots of bubbles, no head to mention...dry herbal nose, faint but reasonably fresh...fairly bitter, dry body throughout, just enough honey sweetness to keep it drinkable but without enough malt to make it interesting.

By the glass at a cafe in the university district of Munich. Tobacco-ish taste, not overly impressed.

schwabe5 (4) - GERMANY - MAR 20, 2005 does not count
Fürst has really got it´s own taste. It´s a good pilsner with a strong flavor. Only for thoses who like strong pilseners.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2004
From can, clear golden colour, little head, hoppy, fat grass aroma, tart and bitter, very dry finish - a good example of a german pils.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2004
Golden amber. Fruity undertones. Good hopping. Pale malt infulence. Lots of palate. Not sure about if it was pastuerised or filtered, because of a very lightly cloudy particled appearance. Good lager style aroma, but not particularly strong.

rlgk (10117) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
Pale yellow. Weak flavor from almost nothing at all. Dull and boring.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2004
