The first beer that I ever was drunk on during my German exchange when I was 14...so of highly sentimental value.

Not much to write about look, though aroma is complex and well cultured.

Taste is surprisingly good, in comparison to most pilsners. It has a courageous kick, and a very intertwined malt and hops flavour. Great

Not really that much to comment. A bit watered-down version of the German Pilsner, therefore a bit easier to drink but leaves a bit weird, sour aftertaste and you keep looking for a decent body. I gave it a good 3, thinking that I might have overrated it...

Pours a pale straw color with a slight honey hue. The head is white and wispy and leaves some spotty lacing.

The aroma is clean and grassy. Some cracker malt notes.

The taste is crisp, crackery with grassy and peppery hops. Nice Pils flavor.

The feel is light and crisp. Lightly dry and bitter. Very drinkable.

Very nice Pils. Very refreshing.

Krombacher Kellerbier - This is an Amber beer that is very reminiscent of a wheat beer. Hazy , grainy and semi sweet this beer is a nice smooth german go to . do to how filling it was I could only have about two before I started feeling full and sluggish. its a very Basic beer. At 5.1% ABV

Poured a hazy yellow with one finger head into a Pilsner glass. Subtle malt smell. Taste is also not overpowering either malts. A little on the watery side but there is still flavor here. A proper German pils that is very drinkable.

This beer, albeit from a macro brewery, highlights that Americans need a better easy to purchase, go to beer. I love this beer. It is clean, very tasty and gives me the feel if drinking real beer without breaking pocketbook. I wish an American Macro could make a beer of this quality. Love it

Clear gold with a thick lush white head that leaves solid lacing.

Wet hay hop aroma. Clean tasting with some slight bready malt; a hint of cornand skunk; wet hay hops again; and a crisp aftertaste.

Medium bodied. Decent carbonation. An all around solid pilsner.

This must be the German equivalent of a Budweiser. Absolutely the worst German beer I've ever had. No aroma. No taste. Carbonated water

P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Cigar City pint glass.Bottled on 10/06/16 ,best by 10/06/17.

L- Frothy white colored head that stands 1 finger tall,with good retention and sticky lacing.Gold / straw colored body with very good clarity.Low amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get grain,wheat,lemon,and grassy notes.A little bit of earthy hops as well.

T- On the palate I get spice and earth hops up front,lemongrass in the middle,and light wheat,grain,and barley on the back end.

F- The mouth feel is a bit thin,with a moderate amount of oxidation on the tongue.Smooth finish.

O- This is a decent pilsner.Not my favorite style,and not my favorite version of the style.It's not a terrible beer,but it is also not something I would drink again.But if you're a big fan of pilsners,by all means give it a shot.
