Fürstenberg was purchased by a Heineken joint venture in 2004.

The Bierstube is a big place, with four or five good-sized rooms that I could see. The food here is excellent.

      Overall Impression (3½)
      Bright golden, high carbonation. Thick head. Smells of spicy hops, and lots of 'em! Medium body. Big spicy hop flavor on a big Pilsner malt base. Real tasty beer. Thanks to Bryce Hinsch for the sample!

      Aroma (3)
      Grainy, malty. Maybe just a little worty.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Very light body. Smooth. Sweetly grainy malt character. Very mild noble hop flavor with just a touch of bitterness.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Brewed in the same manner as their full-strength beers. The alcohol is removed using a patented process.

      Big wheat malt. Mild banana. Mild grainy malt.

      Overall Impression (2)
      Maybe a bit too mild, but very tasty anyway. I wonder if Rolf likes this one.
