COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why should we strive constantly to try to improve an already excellent flavor ever? It is one of our strengths, we can recognize that when a product perfected and completed in flavor. We believe in modern continuity and stability as strengths of Krombacher - constant in quality, resistant to the taste. An achievement that we will not sacrifice lightly. The Christmas Song tells the quietly resting at sea, as we feel it with our beer. In peace lies both the strength and the indulgence.

Nature has provided us with its mountain spring water ® richly rewarded. We also feel this as a mandate and responsibility to consider also Krombacher Pils as a gift and preserve this jewel of nature pure. The mountain spring water ® is the most important component for the unique quality and distinctive taste experience of a Krombacher lager. A Krombacher stands for naturally fresh beer enjoyment and a fine, spicy aroma. How many generations in the future, our passion is the preservation of this achievement.

Bottle from Stowmarket Spoons. Pours golden with a white head. The taste is tangy citrus with a lingering metallic aftertaste. Reasonably full flavoured. Refreshing for a hot day.

On tap at a restaurant in Heiligenhafen. Fruity and bready smell, a bit artificial. Similar taste. Fairly clean if this is an industrial lager, at least it tastes like an above average industrial lager.

Draft at Valhalla. 1/2 liter in proper glassware. Clear body with a thick white head. Copious lacing. Bready aroma, lager yeast. Great flavor. Refreshing and quaffable. A delicious pilsner.

bartzluke (331) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 1, 2015
From tap in Frankfurt into a glass krombacher mug. Clera as day, nice carbonation, fluffy white head. Medium body, creamy. Very nice body. Nose is light maly, a little wheat. Body is a bit fuller than a typical pils, but nothing too remarkable. Refreshing and straight-forward.

Bottle. Krombacher is for me something like a benchmark. It is the definition of mediocre. Well brewed, without flaws or errors, without bad aftertaste and without headaches. However, on other hand without much aroma or special taste, just a solid straight forward beer. Golden, clear and sparkling with a full, white, long lasting and frothy head. Aroma is malty with bready notes, spicy and somewhat floral-earthy. Very balanced taste and flavor, however the sweetness is a bit stronger than the hoppy bitterness. Very harmonic in its composition, straight forward and easy, maybe to harmonic, without any edges or pleasant surprises. The body is light with high carbonation and a bitter finish.
