McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from Fristo Getränkemarkt in Bamberg. The beer has got a clear deep golden colour with an steady low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw, followed by a taste of mild, yet bitter hops, light malt, bread, barley, grass and mild citrus fruits. Refreshing and easy drinkable with quite a high carbonation. Good and solid beer.

TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Draft at Brauerei Fässla: Luminous flaxen golden. Pleasant but simple aroma of lemon zest, honeysuckle and toasted hay. Soft carbonation sits snugly on the tongue. Subtle lemony acidity precedes a vibrant grassy hop expression. Mineralic and snappy, though a mild note of DMS (lettuce) muddles things. Crackery pils malt is gently glazed with sugar and aside from a very minor grainy brashness, is polished and nicely textured. Cleanly bitter finish is pleasantly coarse in its leafiness, with lingering lemon balm and lemon pulp. Slippery residue lasts well into the aftertaste to plague the malt structure. While this - or any Fässla product, for that matter - isn’t something I seek when in Bamberg, it’s far from unpleasant. Aside from a few minor imperfections and being overly restrained, it’s highly drinkable, with an appealing softness and good hop flavor. Serviceable.

Pailhead (6426) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2016
On tap: The aroma consists of mild sweet cereal notes, grass, and a hint of lemon. It’s a transparent gold with a large white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring There is some sporadic soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with mild cereal notes and a hint of honey. The finish has light-moderate grass with just a hint of lemon. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2004 Tap, at the brewery. Gold, moderate but thinning white head and gentle condition. Sweet malt and low pilsner type hoppiness in the nose, more pleasant sweetness in the mouth with a touch of hop flavour and bitterness developing. Well balanced grain and hop bitterness in the finish.

Ernest (7352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle (BB Feb/08), Bamberg. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a light note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The aroma is tainted a bit by the DMS, but otherwise it’s pretty good.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2008
On tap at Fässla in Bamberg. Golden with a nice head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy with notes of straw and newly harvested hay. The flavour has nice hoppy notes with flower, fruit and newly harvested hay and a smooth touch of caramel. It’s very charming - and the atmosphere adds to the overall impression.

3fourths (9148) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Draft at the brewery in Bamberg. Clear gold. Nose is yeast, grain, corn. Crisp, grassy, drying. Noble hops. A decent pils that doesn’t do much other than quench thirst.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2009
Bottled. Pale yellow colour with mediumsized airy/fluffy head. Aroma is saltwater, some slight wooden notes as well as herbal and bready malty. Flavour is quite herbal earthy notes along with some slight saltwatery notes. A quite complex flavour. Also did it draught at the brewery with very close ratingnumberrresults (only 0.2 differing). Nrrating given is the one in between...
