EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle. Sweet aroma of flowery hops. Clear golden with a creamy white head. Taste is all about hoppy bitterness, light malt. Crisp, somewhat refreshing, light to medium body, light hoppy finish. Well-made Pils but nothing special.

diabel (1630) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Frothy, white head, which diminishes mostly. Clear, yellow body. Aroma of light hops. Lightly bitter initial flavour, moderately bitter finish. Nice, refreshing pilsener, but not fancy or superinteresting.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Impressions from the schwemm:
-A ring of foam stands above the transparent golden.
-Dry hay and herbal supporting hops make up most of the flavor profile.
-Very clean and lean-bodied, very drinkable.
-Aroma and flavor are consequential, no surprises here.
-Herbal hop bitterness lingers amicably.

On tap a couple of times at the brewery.

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.

Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts, corn and hops with fruity notes. Flavour of hops with notes of fruits and malts.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pale pilsener golden with a pretty, white head. Very malty nose. Good solid body and an incredibly clear and pure flavour of malt. Dry, hoppy finish. Well crafted beer. 011005

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Light hoppy nose, with a sublte malt background. Clear yellow body, with a small white head. Hoppy flavor, light malty, ends on a decent bitter note.

pivnizub (9400) - 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 (8562) - Ursel, 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!
