In my opinion it’s not L. pallidus

It doesn’t look like L. pallidus. Look here for some typical. http://www.funghiitaliani.it/index.php?showtopic=15373 It could be L. piperatus, (a rather rare species in Germany), because the stem is very long and thick for the relatively small cap. This Lactarius has a hot taste, a white, very hot, unchangable milk and decurrent, crowded, narrow, creamy white Gills. The odor is fruity. Look here http://www.funghiitaliani.it/index.php?showtopic=15206.
