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.

Batavi (84) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Warsteiner fluitglas, goudgele kleur, fraaie witte en fijne schuimkraag die heel stabiel is. Geur van gerstemout, brooddeeg, aangename geur voor een pilsener. De smaak is zeer zacht, zuiver en mild. Granige en milde tonen van brooddeeg, lichte honing en bloemige smaken, zacht bittere hoptoets. Het mondgevoel is iets romig, met een mooie balans in de zachte carbonatie. De afdronk is medium lang en zacht bitter. Deze pilsener is vakkundig gebrouwen en drinkt zacht weg. De beste pilsener bieren komen uit Tsjechië en Duitsland. Deze Krombacher is een lekkere pilsener, die je de gehele avond zou kunnen drinken, een voorbeeld voor vele commerciële brouwerijen, hoe je daadwerkelijk een goede lager/pilsener moet brouwen.

Bottle from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear golden colour with a thick fizzy head with good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, grain, cereal, grass and some earthiness. Taste is crisp, of cereal, grass, earthy malt and a metallic hint. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A soft earthy bitterness in the finish. An average german pilsner.

Got a 6 pack for a birthday present. Typical German brew that holds to the Purity Law of 1516. Nice golden color with thick white head on the pour. However, there is a somewhat funk flavor. Not so much that it is undrinkable, just a little odd. Maybe the spring water?

Trudno się pozytywnie na temat tego piwa wypowiadać... Nie ma za bardzo punktu zaczepienia. Krombacher Pils jest jasnożółty, bardzo klarowny, piany bardzo mało. W zapachu minimalne nuty słodowe, trochę metalu. Smak, zgodnie z oczekiwaniami, jałowy, lekko słodowy, wodnisty i metaliczny. Na plus przemawia tylko to, że wypiłem do końca... Ogólnie niesmaczne.

leebotton (284) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2015
From Brewers Droop, Bristol (German Version) Expires this month Thick, white, almost too persistent proteinous head sits atop a golden straw bod. I get the baked beans, some earthy spice. The flavour is slightly sweet alongside the bitterness with a very subtle resin flavour and a prickly, zingy, refreshing earthy grain overtone. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this one, I expected something very boring but actually it has a lot of character whilst also being very easygoing and would make a great spring/ summer refreshing drink. I expect this version is much better than the British version though.
