Hermod (3078) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2012
50cl bottle. BBE 03/2012. Poured clear golden with a creamy, lacing white head. Aroma is grainy malty, herbs and hops. Flavor has lots of grain, light sweetness, decent bitterness, dry finish. Great pilsener, but this was bit too old. Fresh or from the tap this would be awesome.

Embrouille (2823) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 16, 2011
Bottled 50cl. Keeping it short. The best pils in the side-by-side tasting. Very pleasant.

Indra (2594) - 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.

MIBRomeo (2541) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Very avg beer all the typical pils components from look and smell to taste with the addition of a slightly tart finish bordering on sour. Not that good.

Bamberg jolly day 2 25/01/2014. Draft at Fassla in the morning. Bright light golden yellow coloured pour with a nice lasting white froth. Aroma is earthy nobel hop with a light veg note anf green apple. Flavour is nice clean pils, nobel hop and lager yeast. Medium.light palate. Solid grassy bitterness.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2006
Draught @ Fassla, Bamberg. Overly sweet with much reduced hopping compared to the lagerbier. Thin but heavy in stomach at same time. I didnt enjoy the beer too much but even so it was quite pleasant sitting in the courtyard drinking it.

ALLOVATE (2356) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2006
Ahh, beautiful Bamberg in the summer sun. Has a bustling country town feel about it. Quick to drink this town is, it seems we woke later than the patrons of Fässla who were already bending elbows with this stuff in the early morning, a time I usually reserve for coffee and crumpet, maybe some pumpernickel. The first night of our stay here Deutschland won a group qualifier in the World Cup so Fässla Bräu simply roared for around 18 hours more, no sleep that night, this was the poison.
Vom fass into its own tall glass. Bright sunny gold body, light, fine streams of carbonation rose to a lovely, fluffy, snow-white head that held on and daubed long legs of froth down the glass. Obscenely clean nose of fresh cracked pepper, leafy herbs and grass, and just a touch of dry, summery grains underneath. Dry, raspy and grassy hops in the mouth add a zing to the slightly sour malt tones in the back. Layers of dry, gritty malts upfront and across the mid-palate. Good, firm bitter bite on the swallow, peaks and drops off with notes of eucalypt and bay leaves, and some more sour malt and hops. Very fresh tasting, the body is light, almost delicate, and it bounces ever so hastily across the palate. So clean and precise. I liked this, it suited the brewpub. A no-nonsense, anytime of day quaffer that made for a good night, with the inclusion of the raucous, lovable locals. A simple Pils, but a good one!!!

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2006
Draught at the brewery, very carbonated, a clear straw yellow with a white foamy head. Floral hop aroma. Floral and herbacious flavours on a good clean palate. Refreshing - a top Pils.
