This is excellent beer. Krug is the standout brewery in the Aufsess area for me. The pils ticks all the boxes - magnificent in the glass, tiny hop explosion, tiny malt beautifully balanced, magnificent golden-to-straw appearance. Nice bitterness, very good beer. I went there twice, on 17/18 September 2014 - I went back because it was the standout and had a bit of a session and met the brewer !

It is a light, crisp, refreshing pils that went down extremely nicely on a hot and sunny Bamberg day.

3fourths (8212) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at Fränkisches Bierfest Nürnberg.
Given the character I would guess this is the kellerbier filtered.
Very clean pilsner malt expression. Aromatic crackers, just-baked bread.
Medium sweet, mild -to-medium bitterness.
Minerallic, crisp, quenching, clean.
Beautiful in it’s simplicity.
Soft malt, balanced bitterness.
Lingering spiced lemon / floral hop flavors.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2012
#159 Satte Pilsfarbe mit schöner Schaumkrone. Heuartige Noten umgeben den dominant grasigen Hopfenton. Im Antrunk schlank malzig und erfrischend; der Hopfen schaltet sich schnell ein und übernimmt angenehm das Kommando. Ein Pils, dass sehr süffig und gut ausbalanciert ist! Test vom 10.12.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,12,10,12 - 12,05

Moravius (568) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Flasche vom Rewe-Getränkemarkt, Waischenfeld. - Antrunk zart malzsüß. Leicht zitroniger, grasiger Hopfen leitet in den angenehm bitteren Abgang über. Auch im Abgang noch fruchtig und herb zugleich, sehr rund und „saftig“. Weniger bitter als die besten Pilsner Biere, aber sehr lecker. Daß Konrad Krug auf die „Arschwischvokabel“ (M. Rudolf) „feinherb“ verzichtet und seinem Pilsner auf dem Rückenetikett ganz wahrheitsgemäß einen „nicht zu herben, runden Geschmack" bescheinigt, gibt einen zusätzlichen Pluspunkt.

Fruchtiger Geruch mit zitronig-minzigen Nuancen. Frischer Antrunk. Es folgt ein hopfenaromatischer Schub mit etwas Herbe. Sanft feinherber Ausklang. Vollmundiges Pils. Sympathisch und gut. Test vom 2.4.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche
