This beer looks good. A deep gold, its pretty dark for an international pilsner. The head is pure white and lasts the whole glass. Thick patches of lace stick to the glass.
Now for the bad...
The aroma is grainy and sweeter than a usual mass market pilsner. Theres also a sickly fruity accent. The taste is too sweet for the style with the same weird fruit/estery off flavor and some cooked veggies. Some hop flowers show in the middle but get lost in the weirdness. The mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation and a saccarine feel coating my mouth. The finish is conspicuously lacking in bitterness.
This beer is not very tastey. Not enough hops, even for an international pilsner, also some funky off flavors. Just a notch or two above undrinkable.

Typical pils pale yellow color, decent white fluff atop, soft and creamy.
Aroma, Every way ordinary, mild, slightly grainy, cornmeal, sweetish, zestless. Taste, ....eh. Flat, dull, ...so much so, it makes W. seem like a Rhodes scholar. Something unpleasant in the mouthfeel, too, something sickly, and thoroughly unpalatable. Light bodied, but not too light, there's an ample amount of malt here, but the flavor is off-putting as all-get-out!
Perhaps this better in some other format, or, undoubtedly, when fresher, as any beer is...but this sample was unsatisfactory!

A Has a clear golden color, and only average carbonation, which left me surprised at its impressive head.
S Nothing that you haven't smelled before.
T Tastes like any German macro-lager, pleasant but non-threatening.
M Refreshing, it would work well for pool sides or BBQs.
D Easy to drink, which is about all that it has going for it.

Appearance - golden with a big foamy head that dissipated quickly with some lacing
Smell - initial spiciness with the pour, which settles into a yeast scent
Taste - yeast, spice, and a little malt with a bitter aftertaste
Mouthfeel - thin and well carbonated
Drinkability - Unfortunately I poured this before it had enough time to chill properly, so this might have affected my experience. I'm a mere Acolyte and this is my first Pilsner review, and I have to say I think this isn't the beer style for me. The bite of the bitterness really isn't to my liking, but that said, you live and learn.

Average German beer with nothing special to make you want to drink this beer in the pubs or with food. It's one of those not-bad-not-good beers which you would go for an alternative if there was one but wouldn't refuse to drink it if there wasn't any other beer...

Krombacher Pils pours a pale yellow with a fluffy white head from a brown 500 ml bottle. The aroma is very mild, a hint of hops maybe. Malt dominates the flavor at first, followed by a metallic hop taste. More malty than hoppy. I'd pass and try something else.
