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.

Douberd (3054) - Arnhem, - NOV 18, 2012
Can, half a litre at home. Poured a golden yellow colour with a two finger head that soon went away, but stayed enough to protect the surface. Average bubbles rising to the top. Aroma is of malts and something I can’t put my finger on, but quite pleasant. Taste is bitter and metallic. Medium bodied, leaves a dryness on your tongue. Average carbonation. Overall one step ahead of your average german pilseners.

felsenpils (123) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
330ml bottle. Bottled on 23 Sep 2014, best before 23 Sep 2015. This bottle has found its way to me about half way through its shelf life. It pours a very clear golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is clean, but malt accented with no hop presence. The flavor is also very clean with a sweet malt aftertaste. This is a typical modern German Pils: no faults, but not much else either. They need to bring up the original gravity from 11.2% to something over 12%. Then up the IBU´s from the current 26 to 36 and you might get a real Pilsener. Drinkable enough and better than other Europils like Carlsberg, Stella and Heineken, but not by much.

HammerTroll (734) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 16, 2015
Clear golden color, small white head. Malty aroma, not impressive at all. Same goes for the taste. Thin body, watery, average carbonation. Not that gross, but way too watery.

The aroma was malty and bready. The taste mirrored the aroma. The finish was clean and dry. The beer went well with the mushroom soup.
