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.

Eh there isn’t really much to distinguish this from a crappy macro pale lager. There was a slight hint of grassy hops and malt, so I guess it was okay. Bottom line: There are cheaper and better beers out there so I don’t really see myself ever drinking this again.

Ein eher unterdurchschnittliches Pils. Es fehlt am Aroma, zu wässrig. Leicht bitterer Nachgeschmack.

Its a common Pilsner, golden and smoth. It has nothing special to say about, it ’s not a bad one.

Zlotta (125) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2015
Just some sips from my mother’s glass. Pale, golden yellow with a thick, foamy, stable, white head. Sweetish aroma of fresh mown grass, straw and cereals. Slightly sweetish taste of malts, cereals, straw and bread. Thin body, average carbonation, short, slightly bitter finish. Just an average pilsener. Nothing wrong with it, but boring and tasteless. Being produced by a big company does not solely make it worse than other examples of this style.

MatthijsE (885) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours a golden color with a longlasting white head. The aroma is grain, sweet malt. Sweet malty bready and grainy flavor. Malty fruity finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Light body with fine carbonation.

Cimbasso (292) - - JAN 2, 2015
Sampled from a bottle. Typical Pilsener-style lager - golden with a white head. Medium-bodied - a little heavier than some examples. Good barley malt flavours and a crispness from the yeast. medium bitterness from grassy-tasting hops. A good example of a clean, crisp German Pils.

WillemsUrenkel (697) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2014
0,33 l bottle. Clear and golden as you expect a Pilsener, big white head. Nothing to say against the optical appearance. Taste is more on a lower level, grain, soft bitterness. Typical industrial german Pilsener. Not really bad, but nothing special.

EdKing (2010) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Pint in Mother Kellys. Hazy amber, medium white head. Nose is really fresh, lots of cereal grain, barley husk, sweet malt, crisp lager yeast, little straw and dry grass. Taste is cereal grain, barley husk, sweet malt, lager yeast, bready, little bit of dry grass. It’s a really nice full flavoured lager.
