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.

Clear pale yellow with bit sparkling and huge medium long frothy white head that leaves lacing well. Grainy aroma with slightly ugly damp notes and bit vegetable that leave quite fast. Light to medium body, flavor works much better than aroma, ok malty bread, grains, long finish, quite soft, bit grass. Easy to drink but not best aroma.

Floral hops dominate and take over this otherwise refreshing beer. Medium bitter and slightly watery.

Geiserich (3343) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle: Quite grainy aroma, grassy hops. Golden color, white head. Flavor is also quite grainy, sweetish, light notes of corn, grassy hops. Too grainy for me, tastes a bit too cheap.

OOKPIKABLE (66) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours golden with white head. Aroma of hops and a bit of nail polish. Taste of the same with a not really pleasant, somewhat chemically-ish aftertaste. Not a lot going on with this beer.

ninecats (131) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is grainy malt, some hops, touch of corn. Taste is quite soft malt and a slight grassy citrusy bitterness from noble hops. Quite dry. Body is light to medium, light carbo. Good for a macro.

Lexomm (1) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 16, 2014 does not count
I had this beer while sitting in a nice garden bar, sunny day, 28°C. The beer from tap looked crisp, very blonde, fine white head. Nice bouquet, hops, some citrus notes. I taste hops, a bit bitter in a nice way with a strong taste. The beer feels fresh and crisp in the mouth and exits lightly bitter while the taste lingers on nicely.

This bottle was dated as being bottled five months before I drank it which is unfortunately reasonably fresh by German beer in America standards. While I am wishing I was drinking this five months ago, it held up pretty well so good on Krombacher and their quality control. Most American craft brews of this age would taste like pine tar and cardboard. This is a pleasant, clear gold color w/ a thin white head of foamy bubbles. Its nose is of subdued noble hops and a bit of fresh cracked malt. This is dry w/ very solid bitterness. A lemony note from the hops and crisp carbonation make for a very light, tasty and drinkable brew. My only complaint is the bitterness in the finish tastes just slightly harsh upon the first few sips but that wanes as the beer warms a bit. This is maybe not the greatest beer I’ve ever tasted but it has everything I want out of a German pils, namely it’s dry, drinkable and bitter as hell. It tastes better the more you drink of it and is flavorful enough to keep my interest. I could drink this all day.
