COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kulmbacher Edelherb is pale and dry. Its special taste is thanks to the soft brewing water from pristine, crystal-clear springs of the Fichtelgebirge, the noblest malting barley from regional farmlands, handpicked hops from the Hallertau, and our legendary brewing skills.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Simple pilsner. Pours clear light gold. It is what it is & a decent pilsner. Slightly medicinal & herbal, light mouth feel, brings me back to my younger days when I thought Becks was good

pours a clear yellow with a 11/2 finger fluffy white head. aroma is pilsner malt and some hops with a little lemon. has a light to medium body with ok lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but a little stronger. it has a small dry hop aftertaste but is a bit flay on the palate. all in all not bad of a pilsner.

Ernest (6700) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain / cracker, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of DMS and metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sadly the husks/metal/DMS notes bring this down; there are some nice things about it, but it’s a bit rough. Overall about average.

This beer pours a golden yellow with little to no head. The aroma is very typically skunky . The flavor is classic pilsner and I gotta say, I actually liiked this one. It was kinda dry with lots of good hoppy character! Cheers!

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Pours a crisp, clean golden color into the pilsner glass. Hoppy, crisp aroma. A decent pils that doesn’t distinguish itself much from others. Clean, crisp taste...but not very exciting.

craftbeerdesign (2244) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2008
bottle from BOM club... a true pilsner... not much aroma at all... pours a light golden color, very clean, crisp and refreshing. slight bitter finish and palate. overall a very drinkable middle of the week beer.

bhensonb (12324) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Light aroma of noble hop with some malt behind it. Golden color with a fluffy white head that sort of laced. Near medium in body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is noble hop over light malt. The bitter builds into the finish. It’s not exactly crisp. Fits the style, but not as sharp as Urquell. Definitely a decent pils.

A 1.7/5 is probably being generous. Close your eyes and this could be Budweiser with a slightly better almost ricey finish. Not buying this again.

straw colored, rocky white head. aroma is of wet paper sack and lightly spiced hops. flavor is lightly spiced and a bit earthy. not bad but not terribly interesting.
