Gr0ve (2173) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2006
500 ml can. Clear golden. Fine-laced white head. Aroma is citrusy, very lemon-like. The citrus aromas most likely come from the hops used. Saaz perhaps. Flavour holds very little maltiness. Distinct grassy hop flavour. Medium bodied. Pretty much an average pilsener. Good hops, but low on malts.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 15, 2005
500ml bottle: poured clear yellow with a big white head. Very light streaming bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is light hops and very light malt. This is a German pilsner through and through. Light metallic flavor and a moderate bitter finish. Good.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Neatly golden pilsener with a creamy but rather discreet head. Nice, full body and a solid hoppyness - the latter is a bit unusual for Fürstenberg. 181002

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2005
Aroma reminiscent of papayas, bananas etc. Pours a mellow yellow with a small head. Flavour is quite dry and biscuity. Slightly warming too, impressive for a pils. This is all around one of the best pilsners I’ve tasted.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden colour. Medium, beautifully frothy head. Flowery hop aroma. Slightly sweetish, flowery, hoppy with a hint of maltiness. Ends medium dry, but with a lasting hop-bitter aftertaste. Body is a tad too light. Good pilsner of the southern-German type.

From the Can: Pours pale yellow with foamy white head that has a decent retension till about halfway or a bit better. Grassy aroma Taste is sweet and grainy somewhat carbonated with a metallic slightly bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Plain clear gold color without much head. Flavor is too sweet and malty, with little hops to balance.
