Good beer, very easy drinking. Tap one is better than bottle/can

12 fl oz. can, with canned on date 04/30/2014, and best by 04/30/2015 printed on the bottom of the can. Acquired this oddity as part of a mixed six pack from the local Binny's, my first encounter with any beer from this brewery.

Poured into a miniature Victorian carriage adorned pint glass.

A - It pours a nice bright golden yellow; lightly cloudy with some big sediment floating in the glass to my surprise. Three big fluffy fingers of thick white head that stays for a while and leaves behind good fluffy lacing.

S - The aroma is simple, yet pleasant. Sweet honey, bread, and malt. Grainy & husky.

T - The taste follows the nose - grainy, wheaty, corny, husky. Light bready / honey sweetness.

M - The feel is crisp, grainy, & clean. Lightly malty / papery / husky on the finish. Solid carbonation; very easy drinking.

Overall, a prime example of the style. Simple, yet refined. Definitely a german pilsner I wouldn't mind slamming all day during the heat of summer.

Krombacher Pils -----4/5.

Drank in a Stein at Belfast NI Oktoberfest 2014

Appearance – A good amber golden colour with decent CO2 activity in the glass. This beer raised a great head that lasted well over the average 3-4 minute marker. There was also a lot of heavy lacing from this beer.
Smell – The nose in this beer was very much dominated by the malt profile. The hop aromas were somewhat lost as the beer was served in a Stein glass. There was some evidence of solvent in the aroma but it was not enough to be a problem for me personally.
Taste – The malt aromas from the nose were very noticeable in the flavour of this beer and the lost hops finally came through here. There was a decent amount of mild sweetness from the malt and a nice bitter finish from the hop. This beer was straight up and did what it set out to do and it did it very well.
Mouthfeel – The CO2 gave great tingle in this beer that had very nice body and amazing linger.
Overall – This beer is pretty damned good. The flavour profile is pretty much exactly what a Pilsner in this style should be. Of all the German Pils I have had the pleasure to drink this is one of the best.
