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

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.

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
TOTAL SCORE: 40/50

Hoppy and vegetal aroma. Not much bitterness for a pilsner but a great taste. I call it a everyday beer.

Bottle: Drank after a visit to the Zupspitze, Pils is not that popular in Bavaria though you’ll always find at least one option but mainly in bottles (not draft). Food Pairing: Flammkuchen

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml can from one of the only decent beer stores I know of. Pours a nice golden pilsner colour, with the classic large German white, fluffy head. Aroma: Nice and fruity, with the typical floral hoppiness. Taste: More or less the exact same as the aroma, with some biscuity malts and a surprisingly nice Noble hop bite thrown in. Nothing spectacular, nothing unique, just a nice tall refreshing glass of a German Pilsener, which is exactly what I was expecting. And in that sense, it is beautiful in it’s simplicity. Amongst other imported options around here, this one is a pretty good example of this style IMHO, and I tend to consider myself a lager-lover of sorts.

Bottle, from Beers of Europe (website). Rich, golden colour, nice frothy head, fairly fizzy. Dry, slightly hoppy flavour, very crisp. Not much of a development in flavour, but a lingering bitterness, that recedes slowly. Classoc German technology - refreshing, and flavours are balanced and dry, without being harsh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of mild florals, cereal notes, and grass. It’s a transparent gold with a two finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There are some thin soapy rings left on the sides of the glass with each sip. The flavor starts with mild sweet cereal notes with a hint of honey. The finish has light-moderate grass and florals. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.
