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.

TET (2465) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Golden beer with a almost medium and white head. Aroma is pure, pilsener malts, some grass and grain field. Taste is malty, some grass, only little of bitterness. Quite light body, nice carbonation and smooth to drink. Nothing special, still pure Pils without annoying nuancees, also smooth and nice to drink.

Classic clear golden yellow color. Smells not very nice, but a regular decent taste. Very low body and carbo though.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2011
This is a good looking beer. Golden, clear , well carbonated and a gnerous white flufy head. Fresh noble hop aromas are prevalent before nosing and again on closer inspection. There’s good pilsner malt aroma there as well. No doubt about its credentials, this is a pilsner alright. Fresh and well hopped with good bitterness and body. If only all generic lagers were like this the word would be a better place. Tasty, very tasty and a good lawnmower beer.

Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a very brilliant golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Nose is big pils malt and some nice spicy noble hops. Really nice nose. On taste, a bit of corny DMS and a big bready taste. Has some odd slickness in the palate, perhaps a diacetyl component. Also has some fruity ester notes as well. Kind of reminds me of a bitter Kolsch. Not too shabby, different.

Buena cerveza Pilsen. Típica cerveza alemana, bastante malteada. Apariencia dorada. Sabor ligero y textura limpia

Clear gold with a white head. Grassy aroma. Taste is honey malt with a spicy hop finish. "Classic German Lager"

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2011 Draft at Bavarian Lodge. This confirms what I already suspected: If you really want to enjoy a "fine Pilsner beer" (piss on that, Lite!), you gotta get the German or Czech ones fresh from a keg at a beer bar that knows its stuff. Not an import bottle. This totally rules. Poured in a 22 oz. "stein" glass, it shows a clear pils color with more brass than any megabrew. The first sniff has some funk to it, a bit of a surprise. The taste hits with German hops dominating: peppery and slightly herbal. Malt is much quieter, almost subdued. A bracing hit of pure beer. Updated to acknowledge that this is my 100th German beer rated! My second most-rated country after the US! But with Belgium a close third.

Martinus (4355) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2011
Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma malty, slight bitter, floral hops. For some reason also a bit reminding of dust. Flavour is malty, slight sweetness but bitter and dry. Crisp and quite OK.
(From 33cL bottle)

Koelschtrinker (15817) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 18, 2011
Herb weicher, ein wenig muffiger Antrunk. Später minimal hopfig, langweilig, trocken, einfallslos. Etwas hellmalzig, auch im Abgang herb. Trinkbar, absolut unspektakulär. 8/10/11/9/9/9

tmoreau (3474) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co.. Displayed a clear, golden hue, abundant, creamy, white head foam, and clingy rings of wavy lacing. The aroma was Pils malt, typical noble/floral scent, some grain, light yeast, and a hint of maize. The flavor added moderate hop bitterness, lively carbonation, and pleasant dryness & crispness to the finish. A decently refreshing German Pils.
