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.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 3, 2008
(330 ml bottle from Tully’s) Pours very pale clear yellow with a fairly tall foamy white head in my pilsener glass. Aroma is initially midly honeyish with some bread. As head recedes nose becomes a little hoppy and slightly sour. Mouthfeel has a decent amount of heft with a kind of honeyish malt smoothness but feels quite filtered. Slightly dry. Lacing is patchy and broken. Flavor is lightly sweetish malt - hints of honey and bread. Lightly bitter with bitterness building a bit toward finish and providing a little hit in the end. Lightly bitterish and sweet malt aftertaste. Overall OK - nothing standout, about on par with alot of other pilseners.

"Pilsener" isn’t my favorite style, but the good ones can still be pretty good. This is a good one. Pale yellow with bubbly carbonation and a more persistent head than I find usual for a pilsener. The foam, which starts out a two finger thickness, lasts at a paper-thin thickness pretty much till the end. Nice lacing. Nose is fairly potent of yeasts and fruity notes. Primary taste is tart and appely, with citrus undertones. Dry, rather hoppy finish. Drinks easy.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Light golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt and hay. The flavour has a nice, dry and slightly citrussy bitterness and a very light malty sweetness. It’s refreshing, quenching and pleasantly dry.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Found this one bottled at the World Market in St. Charles, Illinois. Crystal clear, light yellow pour with a thick, white head. Light nose of grassy hops. Clean, balanced palate. Weak finish. This is an absolutely typical pilsener in every respect.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle. 11.2 fl. oz. Clear, pale, golden straw color with fine, white head. Clean aroma of grain and malt. Light bodied with a smooth palate and a dry finish. Crisp flavor is fairly bitter with a slightly sweet aftertaste. A refreshing beer without much else going for it.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Clear faint watery yellow color. Watery grassy, faint hop scent. Crisp, clean, light, watery, grass, very faint hop taste. Not much to enjoy, seems like some American Larger.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2008
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 (7282) - 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.
