yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours yellow with huge white head. Aroma is pilsener malt. Aroma adds hops in a strange way: not really bitter and not really fruity. Label states that aroma hops extract has been added. It completely lacks sweetness and is rather dry, interesting experience - but not something I would return to.

Papsoe (25085) - 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

omhper (19376) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2003
Bottled. Pale golden with minimal head. Aroma of metal and vegetables. Crisp and light bodied with some harsh grassy bitterness. Sadly this beer starts to lean more towards latin american lager than german pilsener nowadays.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
Blond color, with fake head. The usual, poor, smell: corn and some dirty water. Dry mouthfeel, strong bitterness, poor flavor. Indistinguishable.

yngwie (13562) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, a bit pale golden body topped by a finger-thick, white head leaving some lacings. Grassy and fruity aroma with some faint peppery hints. Rather subdued maltyness. A touch of hay as well. The flavor is quite bitter, with a far from dominating maltyness. Some notes of citrus peel and green pine cones. Medium body, dry, and a bit hard on the carbonation. Bitter finish with maltyness. A quaffable and quenching beer that could just a little tweak on the carbonation level. 110818
