Amber lager with noticeable hoppy tang.

The bottle I purchased in Bamberg lists alcohol at 5.5% rather than 4.8%. Dark amber color in the glass. Modest head, not a strong feature. Rich and malty with a pleasant bite of hops. Fairly aromatic with resiny and floral notes. Leaves a noticeable bitter aftertaste, but not robustly hopped.

Good for a stein but not a favorite. Flavors dull after a few sips.

Drank this beer in the brewery ausschank. The aroma of the beer has a malty nose with a little butter in it (without being disturbing). The lager is a amber coloured beer that is filtered. The taste of the beer is full but without being sweet. There are malt tones in the taste but enough of bitterness to compensate, a good balance. The beer is bottem fermented and is very drinkable a real session beer. My favourite from the Fassla range.

on tap in the brewpub below my accomodation for the night. not sure what the relationship of the two places is

this one's nice and hoppy, with a very good hop aroma coming from what i perceive to be saaz (could be totally off). it's got that spice to it. the beer itself is a light amber with minimal head and no lacing. the body is by no means wimpy, and holds the hops up nicely with a meaningful backbone

Sampled on-tap at the brewery pub.

This lager poured a clear, light amber color with creamy, white foam that slowly settled. There was modest carbonation bubbling from the bottom of the glass. The smell was modestly malty with faint hoppiness. The taste was malty with modest hoppiness. Typical German helles lager. The mouthfeel was crisp and dry with medium body and medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent enough lager.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Transparent pale copper with a regular half inch head. Smell is fruity with some caramel. The taste also, revealing caramelized pears, almost burnt, slightly sour. A dry hoppy finish showing notes of grapefruit, lighter than for the pilsner. Mouthfeel is round, lightly bready, the spritzy carbonation refreshes the palate. Quite well balanced, but a little too dry for me.
