Helt grei pils! Sikkert god på varme sommerdager, som tørsteslukker eller til mat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BBD: 8/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils

AROMA: Lightly sweet grainy character; slight graham cracker note. Moderate spicy/floral hops. Background mineral note. 9/12

APPEARANCE: White gold hue; brilliant clarity; very effervescent. Large creamy white foam retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderate-high spicy hop flavor akin to rye or black pepper. Low-moderate sweet, clean grain base with graham cracker flavor, but no residual sweetness. Aftertaste is quite dry and spicy. Clean fermentation, though there is a subtle mineral taste that diminishes over time. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Very quaffable. Tempting to session at 4.8% ABV. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though not the best pilsner in the world, it’s absolutely to-spec for the style (plus fun and easy to drink). What’s not to like? 8/10

ronaldtheriot (1904) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Furstenberg Premium Pilsener has a thick, white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, golden appearance, fairly heavy glass lacing, and noticeable fine white sediment, thoughout. Aroma is of zesty hops and cracker, and the flavor is of cracker, spicy & bitter hops, and some bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium, and Furstenberg Premium Pilsener finishes crsip and clean. RJT

SvanteL (459) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2017
Ljusgul med stort vitt skum som fäster på glaskanterna. Maltig doft med inslag av örter, gräs och apelsin. Brödig smak med lite örter och fruktighet av apelsin, avslutningen är ordentligt torr med en lite fin beska. En trevlig tysk pilsner.

330ml brown bottle poured into a pint. Appearance is clear yellow with a large beige head. Aroma of wet grass, herbs and cereal. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall a standard Pilsener, not bad or anything out of the ordinary.
