Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. A clear deep golden beer with a small and fast disappearing white head. Flowery hoppy nose with some malt. very dry with a good hopping and medium to high bitterness. Maybe the body is too much thin, but it doesn’t matter to me. Another good beer from Bamberg.

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.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2013
Draught at Luitpold Cafe, Bamberg, Germany. Poured a golden colour with a two-finger white foamy head that collapsed quickly but laced OK. Moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of malt and earthy hops. Taste of sweet malt fading to a slight hops bitterness. Light body. Finish a bit sour. Ordinary.

omikr0n (717) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is malt, spicy hops and grass. Flavor pretty much the same. I really like the spicy character of this beer.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2003
Nothing but grass in the aroma, though the flavour is extremely pleasant. A beer to be drunk by the barel. It has a simple interesting flavor profile with grassy hops and malt synergy just about perfect.

Moravius (459) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz. - Goldgelb mit ganz leichtem Grünstich, blank. - In der Nase blumiger, grasiger Hopfen, ganz leicht süßliche Note (und ein Anflug wie von faulen Eiern, der mir bei früheren Exemplaren nie aufgefallen ist). - Im Antrunk reichlich frischer, heuig-grasiger Hopfen. Dahinter schöne Malzsüße mit zarter, fruchtiger Säure und ganz leichter Schärfe. Nicht zu rezent. Ungewöhnlich viel Körper für ein Pils; auch der Ethanolgehalt liegt mit satten 5,5 % an der obersten Grenze des Vertretbaren, ist aber noch gut eingebunden. Grasig hopfenherber Abgang, mittellanger bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schönes Pils mit einem Blumenstrauß frischer Hopfenaromen und einer perfekten Balance zwischen selbstsicher auftretendem Malz und dennoch dominierendem Aromahopfen. Lichtjahre entfernt von hochvergorenen Supermarkt-Pilsenern, bei denen Malzaromen gar nicht mehr vorkommen. - Schmeckt aus der Flasche besser als vom Faß, wo es etwas plumper daherkommt.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Alla spina, pils discreta anche se un pò timida. Aroma erbaceo finale non molto intenso. non indimenticabile
