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.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 W\M world pack. Run of the mill German pils. Decent but not stellar and no offending flavors. Pale lager fans would do well by this. Slighly crisp. Serving: Bottle

A mi smakuje. Piwo pełne kontrastów - myślałem, że to Czech, a to Niemiec. Myślałem, że to tandeta, a całkiem przyjemne. Dobry pilsner.

Ej, ale żeby w niemieckim pilsie z niemiec taka kukurydza i brzeczka? W smaku podobnie, goryczki zero. Omijać z daleka.

Arrachtas (12) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Poured from a 500ml can (three months from production date) into a pint glass. Typical grassy-hop aroma, with some citrus notes (lemon) evident as well. Light-to-Medium body, with a gentle yet increasingly evident hop profile that mimics the aroma; grassy, citrusy, and sharp without being excessive. Finish is moderate, with malt rising alongside the hop profile, leaving a clean, slightly bitter (in a good way) aftertaste. As German macro-beers go, one of the best; not worth searching for, but possibly the best bet if one has a choice among continental pilsners, and is not sure which to pick.

Cristobal37 (795) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 8, 2016
Can. Pasturized lager aroma reminicsent of a Czech pils. At first I would compare it to Pilsner Urquell, but then drops too fast with really dominant bran bread maltiness. The finish is really too malty for me and I didn’t enjoy it that much. Starts with promise, but kind of a dud.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Pours a clear gold with a huge foamy white head...lively...great retention and lacing. aroma has light hay and grass. Flavor gas some sweet graininess...hay...and mild grass...faint hoppy spice...crushable. mouthfeel is full and lively with a slightly dry grassy and minerally finish. Not spectacular but very crushable...solid pils.
