08-11-12 Canette: Belle couleur jaune dorée, claire, bonne effervescence et collet de moussse de bonne grosseur et percistant avec une belle mousse qui colle au verre. Arômes faibles de houblon et de moufette. Très légère en bouche avec une petite note épicée sur la langue. Légère amertume. Corps léger avec une texture mince et croustillante et une bonne carbonisation. Finale astringente, mais facile a boire.

It’s golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, straw and a little flower, and the finish is semi dry.

500ml Draught. Appearance is clear, yellow color is medium, off-white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, and malty. Taste is mild sweet malts, grassy hop bitterness, some herbal medicinal flavor. Palate is light- bodied, somewhat watery texture, average catbonation, and a dry finish.

(Flasche) Es hat eine sonnengelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist primär würzig mit einer leichten Süße im Hintergrund und einem bisschen Puderzucker. Der Geschmack ist breit, getreidig, ein bisschen DMSig, und ein bisschen adstrinierend. Die Bittere ist mäßig, breit, und ein bisschen unangenehm. Zusammengefasst ist es ein Bier, dass ich nicht als erstes am Abend trinken würde.

Jado (508) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2012
From 330 ml bottle, poured a clear amber with a decent head and good carbonation. The flavour is driven by malt with little if any hop characters. Fairly thin and a bit watery, the palate is short. All in all, nothing too remarkable, but more than a match for many other macro lagers at your local. Really good value is also a plus.

kevnic2008 (7786) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2012
Clear, pale straw body with a white head. Mild, light citrusy nose and not much depth of character. Light sweet notes and fairly understated bitterness.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas sieht das Bier ein wenig blass aus, wenig CO2 macht sich bemerkbar, die Blume ist schneller weg als sie da war. Geruchlich bietet das Fürstenberg überraschenderweise ein frisches Hopfenaroma. Auch der Antrunk enttäuscht nicht. Angenehm frisch gehopft, relativ herb, und wiederum ne Spur herber im Abgang. Ein typisches Beispiel für: Aussen Pfui, innen hui! Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.
