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.

Ok, I’m not a pilsner fan, but this one wasn’t too bad. It poured clear golden yellow with a gigantic head, great lacing, and carried with it a full flavor. Unfortunately, this one had the usual grassy pilsner hoppy flavors (which I don’t like), but if you like Pilsners (and within style), this one was pretty darned good. I just can’t bring myself low enough to buy a pilsner for myself (not my cup of tea, but I’ll give it props for what it is).

Rune (9239) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2006
330ml can during a summer holiday at Crete. Pale golden. Rocky foam diminishing after a few minutes. Malty aroma. Hops and malts in the taste. Short bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation (02.06.2006).

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - MAY 19, 2006
Best pilsener I have found in Korea. Light body and only decent hops put it well ahead of hite and cass. Rather dry for a pilsener with nothing to compliment the bitter hops, maybe im just craving a good ale.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2006 (Bottled) Clear, golden color with a small, a bit lacy head. Toffeeish-malty, somewhat buttery and grassy hoppy aroma with fruitiness and hints of alcohol. Quite malty, toffee-buttery flavor with birch leaves, mild and soft hopping, and lots of lemon with some acidity in the dryish finish. Medium-bodied, somewhat carbonated palate. A well-made, quite malty and clean German pils. Clearly better than the draught version (which was served much colder, though). (Draught@William K., Kurvi, was 4-3-5-3-9=2.4) Clear, golden color with a small, white head with some lace. Lemony, slightly harsh-hoppy aroma with hints of sourness. Acidic, sweetish, honey-malty flavor with low bitterness and some butter. Light-bodied, but not watery, quite refreshing palate. A reasonable, easy and sweet pils with not much hops involved.

(0.5L Bottle) Pours golden with a large, lasting head. Creamy mouthfeel with crisp taste of hops. The finish is dry and a bit bland.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2006
Bottle 50cl, bought on Warschauer Strasse, Berlin. Golden lager, small bubbly white head. Faint aroma of straw/hops. Basic german lager taste a la Becks. A bit oily. Slight bitter finish, with a nasty chemical/metallic bite. A straightfoward average pilsener. Becks is nicer (and thats saying something). Avoid.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Aroma is a bit bland, grassy/floural hops. Taste is similar. Unexciting. Rerate: Bottle from the Cave. Alround an easy going quite sweet pilsner with grassy and light herbal notes. Up from 2.7 to 3.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAR 12, 2006
Peach gold body, lots of rising bubbles. Head is perfect white, cottony, creamy and medium-thick. Really fresh smell, clean, light hops, crisp, but its aroma not that distinguishable though. Light taste with fruit malt, berries, pear, and lots of citrus tang. Palate is evenly sweet, citrus, drying. Perfect pils in my opinion. The creamy head is one of the finest I’ve ever seen. Its a shame that the style is bashed on this site (36th overall percentile), but now having been living in a warm climate area, this is much better than a barleywine or stout at the moment. Purchased at Hass Grocery in Cochabamba, Bolivia. 33cl bottle
