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.

Life seems to have thrown a few of these commercially brewed European lagers at me lately, thanks to special offers at cheap outlets, and I’ve appreciated of all of them, much to my suprise. This one is particularly nice. 500ml bottle served cold in a large tulip, Beautiful clear gold with a generous white foam. Lemon aroma, fig and dry biscuit flavour. Medium bodied sharp and clean. Good reminder that it’s not all micro-brewery’s, craft beer, dark IPA’s and experiments. Trust it to be the the bloody Germans though!

Golden with medium head. Sweet aroma with bit of hops...but kinda like wet grass. Small, soapy bitternes. Taste malty, sweet, grassy with a scent of metalic and rocky flavours. Drinkable, probably best with foodtruck bratwurst.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una pilsener non proprio delle migliori. Troppo amara e con retrogusto troppo forte. Andrebbe leggermente addolcita con i malti

McNeillR (1276) - SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Greeny golden, oddly lacking in visible carbonation and a sticky lacing thin h3ad. Unproven bread, uncut grass, uncrushed hops. St4uggling alr3ady. Initial tast3 is br8ghtz, sticky bready and soft lemon squeeze. Carbonation is middling, mo7thfeel is slightly soapy. Gritting finish, soapy bitter linger.

Keg, Big Hands, Manchester, Proper Glassware....

Drunk from 33cl bottle and countless times on draft in Germany. Pale hoppy pilsener that is smooth and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml can from some grocery store. Pours light gold with a big white head that doesn't completely fade away, which is nice. Aroma is bready and grassy. Sweet, grainy flavour. Better looking and better tasting than the other macro pilseners I have tried.

BobyFischer (65) - FRANCE - OCT 18, 2014
Pils Allemande très "normée".Le petit goût de malt, la petite amertume aux herbes, les deux s’équilibrant.Rien de transcendant ni de désagréable.Frais et désaltérant. PS : à importer en masse et ainsi éliminer les méfaits de l’Heineken/Kronenbourg en France.

Bif (1540) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a fair head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and bit grassy. Taste of a mild malt sweetness, bit of citrus and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, quite crisp and clean. Typical German Pilsener, nothing flashy.
