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.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Golden in color, white head. Fairly balanced interplay with some light citrus and grassy hops. Lighter bodied. Lacking in any major character, but pleasant and relatively refreshing.

TheBeerGod (5055) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Bottle. Straw colored yellow with a huge foamy white head. Nose is slighly skunked with light sweet malts, Euro hops, and light biscuit notes. Taste is sweet malts, light citrus, grass, flowery Euro hops, and buttery biscuits. Body is light and rather refreshing. Mild carbonation fizziness. Ends with light biscuity notes, citrus, grass, Euro hops and grains. Eh....

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Pale yellow, decent head. Aroma was sweetish, with a slight moldy hay hop presence. Also sweet in the mouth, more than I would care for, with a grassy hop finish. There was, however, a nice lingering bitterness that saved this beer for me. Not bad.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 18, 2005
Draught/pub at "2 Stelle" in Brescia. Compact and fairly good head. Limpid and bubbly yellow color. Medium scent, notes of malt, light alcohol and hoppines end. Fresh and palatable taste; fairly pungent and with a pretty bitter finish. Enough persistence and though acceptable.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2005
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Faint floral hoppy aroma. Soft bittersweet flavour, light to medium body. Slight malty start with a fine but average hopbitter finish. Clean and well-made Pilsner type but still nothing special.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2005
A touch of creamy head. Nice subtle bitterness to it. Smooth, with spice on tongue. Malty finish, went well with dinner. Light to Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Normally a Southern-German pils is expected to be less bitter than their Northern counterparts. But this is an "Edelherb" and hence rather hoppy - both bitter but also with a lovely aromatic hoppiness. Still this has room for a certain softness in body. Straw golden with a nice creamy head. 291099 and 060903

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 NOt bad, but it has a low taste, I don’t knmow what, maybe it’s expiration date had passed.

shrubber85 (6985) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Bottle - Creamy floral aroma. Clear yellow color with ample long-lasting head. Creamy malt flavor with a very interesting bitter hops finish with a hint of smokiness. A very interesting pils - the more I drink, the more the smokiness came out. A very unique pilsener.
