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.

Avetixz (10) - Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2015
Surprisingly sweet aroma for a Pilsener, smell of fresh hops and malt, but no stinging bitterness. Pours clear golden liquid with a rather small white head. Light bitterness and sweetness with a flavour of malt, hay, cereal and oatmeal. Tastes very natural and fresh. The beer has a full body with an oily, creamy and lively texture. This is probably one of the best German Pilseners you will find in a supermarket with a unique and fresh taste.

MMJL (169) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Aromat z butelki wyraźnie słodowy, lekko chmielowy, przyjemny. Piana biała, bardzo wysoka, dosyć luźna, z czasem rozluźnia się jeszcze bardziej, ale opada dosyć wolno. W barwie piwo jest słomkowe, całkowicie klarowne. Aromat z butelki wyraźny, słodowy, zbożowy, lekko chmielowy – jest ok. Pierwszy łyk potwierdza podejrzenia – piwo jest wodniste. Wyraźnie wysycone, leciutko słodkie. Goryczka jest zauważalna, co juz jest jakimś sukcesem.

Not much going on here. Just an average German pils without flaws. Mal, hops, crisp taste.

Batavi (63) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Warsteiner fluitglas, goudgele kleur, fraaie witte en fijne schuimkraag die heel stabiel is. Geur van gerstemout, brooddeeg, aangename geur voor een pilsener. De smaak is zeer zacht, zuiver en mild. Granige en milde tonen van brooddeeg, lichte honing en bloemige smaken, zacht bittere hoptoets. Het mondgevoel is iets romig, met een mooie balans in de zachte carbonatie. De afdronk is medium lang en zacht bitter. Deze pilsener is vakkundig gebrouwen en drinkt zacht weg. De beste pilsener bieren komen uit Tsjechië en Duitsland. Deze Krombacher is een lekkere pilsener, die je de gehele avond zou kunnen drinken, een voorbeeld voor vele commerciële brouwerijen, hoe je daadwerkelijk een goede lager/pilsener moet brouwen.
