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.

500 ml can from LCBO. Pours straw yellow with white pillowey head. Smells hoppy with grain malt. Easy drinking, nice fruitiness to the aftertaste. Some astringency. OK.

Bottle. A yellow gold pour with a thick white fluffy head. Classic pils. Its surprisingly hoppy on the nose - lemons and a slight metallic. In the taste, theres lemons too, but it’s overly light and breezy and gone too soon. It’s very fresh and light and summery... but not too exciting. Requires a hot day.

Valfar (78) - San Miguel, EL SALVADOR - MAY 2, 2014
Very German. It has all the features a good pils must have. A good body with a slight bitter finish, a good gold color with medium foam, hops give it a good touch in its aroma, almost like a Dutch recipe. I enjoyed it a lot.

Reimer96 (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Pours a clear pale gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of pil malts, nobel hops and German pilsner yeast. Taste is sweet pil malts, bread, nobel hops and a crisp pilsner yeast finish. A harsh nobel hop profile makes this beer not very enjoyable but it is crisp like a pilsner shod be.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
Admittedly not a style I like, this wasn’t an exception. Bottle, cheers warrio. Light gold thick white head, usual looks, very fizzy. It’s just a typical pils, when they’re good they’re good sure but this one isn’t good enough.

Really easy drinking without an overpowering after taste. A creamy taste that belies the premium ABV. Excellent
