This is just an outstanding, outstanding pils. you could tell it was as fresh as it possibly could be. It is hoppy and delicious, the best Pils I have ever had.

soft and dainty and delicate. semi-green. aroma of honey and green tea. very melt-in-the-mouth. the bitterness really creeps up on you and is quite strong eventually. lots of hops - has an ipa quality to it

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2009
This is probably my favourite Bamberg pilsner. Gold colour. Thick rocky head. Very herbal, slightly spicy aroma with a fresh pale malt aroma. Fairly rich pils, both in spicy hop character, moderate bitterness and full pale malts. Leans more towards Bohemia than Bavaria, to my pleasure. On tap at the brewery.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2002
Being in the town of ridiculously over-the-top beers made according to arcane and bizarre traditions, I didn’t expect to find a really good pilsener. But this is just a beautiful, soft, round, honeyish, then herbally bitter pils that might as well have come from the czech republic, if not for the green tinge in the colour that good german pilseners have.

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!!!

KnutAlbert (6100) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle from Fränkische Botschaft. Crisp, hoppy beer, nice cereal body. Hoppy bitterness with a slightly hars edge, light years away from standard industrial lagers. Pale gold.

Moravius (484) - 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.

Probably my go to beer in Bamberg. I’m surprised by the low scores. I can’t imagine a better example of German Pils. Draft and in bottles.
