Nothing exciting, and nothing offensive. Pale gold body with a sudsy white head. Mild, sweet aroma...not bad. Medium mouthfeel with decent carbonation. The falavor isnít bad at all. Overall sweet and mild with just a touch of hoppy bite at the end. Drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle was dated as being bottled five months before I drank it which is unfortunately reasonably fresh by German beer in America standards. While I am wishing I was drinking this five months ago, it held up pretty well so good on Krombacher and their quality control. Most American craft brews of this age would taste like pine tar and cardboard. This is a pleasant, clear gold color w/ a thin white head of foamy bubbles. Its nose is of subdued noble hops and a bit of fresh cracked malt. This is dry w/ very solid bitterness. A lemony note from the hops and crisp carbonation make for a very light, tasty and drinkable brew. My only complaint is the bitterness in the finish tastes just slightly harsh upon the first few sips but that wanes as the beer warms a bit. This is maybe not the greatest beer Iíve ever tasted but it has everything I want out of a German pils, namely itís dry, drinkable and bitter as hell. It tastes better the more you drink of it and is flavorful enough to keep my interest. I could drink this all day.

500ml bottle from Tesco.
Medium sized bubbly white head, tiniest bit of lacing. Clear pale golden body. Nose has faint grassy straw aroma but thereís not much there. Flavour is quite sweet, peppery finish. Decent mouthfeel, quite a bit of carbonation. Aftertaste becomes a bit unpleasant after a while, I wonít be hurrying back to this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden colour, large foamy head that settles down and sticks around. Aroma is grainy and sweet, a medium bodied Pilsener. Crisp and refreshing good summer mouth sweat. Light malt and hops. Nice balance. Mouth feel is full round and smooth. Finish is clean and smooth. After taste is slightly bitter. Nice Pilsener.

Palate is med bodied, surprising body, med carbonation. Nice easy drinking beer. Easily forgotten, but easy to enjoy as well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This wasnít my favorite pils that I tried in Germany but I ended up drinking a ton of it for some reason. This is a pretty popular beer there proving the power of a good marketing campaign. A decent enough pils and dare I say enjoyable for a macro one. Tastes of bread and the malt flavor is assertive. More malt than hops shows up in the taste. Smoother than other German pilsners Iíve had. Still not a very robust flavor and the body is fairly thin. Very drinkable though and has about 90% of Anheuser Buschís beers beaten by a mile.

I love Pilsners, this is by far the best pils that Iíve tasted. Has a bitter feel with a smooth taste. Exactly how a pilsner is supposed to taste.

500 ml bottle. Yellow with white head. Aroma and taste is fairly simple and straight forward. Pale malt, metal, grass and hay, some off flavors and not a very good beer.
