Germany has a real beer culture, and Germans like to get an early start. It was not uncommon for me to be returning from an early morning walk after breakfast, to find the pub at Fassla packed with locals at 10am! When in Bamberg! I got pretty thirsty after a brisk walk, and found myself enjoying a few 1/2 liters of this beer, and felt no guilt drinking beer before Noon. Fassla Pils is a very well done, very balanced drinkable Pils with good hop and malt character, the type of beer you will want to have a few of. Fassla Pils pours to a beautiful, bright, golden color with a nice, bright, white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose is pleasing with crisp pilsner malt aroma, paired with grassy/herbal hop aromas. The palate is crisp with good pilsner malt flavor, on a very smooth and round body. Fassla Pils finishes with more crisp and grainy pale malt flavors up front, the ends with a grassy/herbal bitterness that balances out the malt character of this beer. This is a tasty, smooth, very drinkable German Pils. A nice beer to enjoy a few liters of in the pub at Fassla, or a good beer to match up with a hearty Franconia meal in the rustic, wooden panel, pine table topped restaurant. Nothing over the top here, the type of beer just ideal for drinking more so than anything else. I really enjoyed this one, and this and their lager bier were the beers I started and ended my day with. It was hard not to, as all I had to do was literally walk down a flight of stairs from the second floor hotel, and I was in the pub and ready for a fresh draught of beer. If you ever find yourself in Bamberg, Fassla is well worth a visit. Its central location is really great, and it does not hurt that Brauerei Spezial is located directly across the street for when you crave a rauchbier.

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2005
Bottle: Pale golden, mid-sized firm, lasting head, a bit hazy; very shy nose: traces of hops, malts and cardboard too; very soft sweetish start;quite full bodied; nearly no aromatic hops detectable in the soft, sweetish-malty finish; more a quite good Hell than a true Pils........

JorisPPattyn (7817) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2005
Draught Fully celar gold; small, very fast dwindling transparant white head. Sweet, very malty nose, nearly honey-ish. Estery! Dry-opening Pilsner with (very) far away hops, discreetly German. Light but with a certain grist-body. Feels more bodied than I estimate it probably. Not very outstanding. Good but nowhere outstanding. Less hoppy character than the Lager!

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2005
Light peacharoma. Light malty, peachy flavor. A more noticeable hopbitterness, especially unvealing itself in the aftertaste. Hints of metal.

anders37 (16460) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle. Hazy golden colour. Big white head. A bit spicy smell, smell of grass too. Malty smell as well. Low in carbonation. Smooth balanced taste. Not very bitter for a pilsener. You get some bitternees in the aftertaste. This is a beer i like.

Indra (2595) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
On draught at Fässla. Full-on fresh hop aroma, so peppery and spicy that it must be Saaz, but also lightly floral and perfumed. Light-medium golden yellow color with a white, creamy head. Flavor is primarily a hop fest, bitter, spicy and dry, lending a welcomely refreshing effect. Finish features a burst of hop flavor and bitterness. Body is light-medium. Very nicely done Pils, quenching and flavorful.
