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.

Gee, I would’ve thought that this was a German Pilsener.... It’s got a pale gold body with plenty of beading and a modest white head that laces throughout the drinking. The aroma is sweet and bready with a floral, grassy bitterness. It tastes of sweet malt, slightly grainy, with a touch of apple or pear and a grassy bitterness. Nice crisp, bitter finish. Pretty decent.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 11.2 oz bottle obtained locally. Pours out a clear blonde color with a nice white head. that dissappears qucikly leaving a lot of lace on the glass. Mild biscuity aroma. Very sublte flavors. Do i detect saaz hops? Starts out a bit sweet with some subtle wheat (yes i know there is no wheat here, but i taste wheat anyways) and subtle bananna flavors, even some mild pear..then some mellow hoppiness kicks in, followed by a beautifully balanced Pilsner finish and nice lingering aftertaste that makes you yearn for the next glass. Ok, i never cared for Pilsners until i tasted this one, it is that good. I cannot imagine a more refreshing summer beer than this. My ONLY gripes are that is is too carbonated, and lacks aroma. ..try this out, it IS good.(unless you hate all pilsners to begin with). And if you want a good beer as a gateway for your macro-swill neighbors, i can’t imagine a better one...

A bit confusing. The bottle I saw only said Pils, not "Edelherb". Didn’t smell that good to me. Not real hoppy, a little at the end; some grassiness. Very light and refreshing. An excellent lawnmower beer.

Gold, medium carbonation, fine white head. Fruity aroma, malty, gentle hopps. Medium bodied plenty of pale malts, fruity character, and light grassy hops. Light finish, with gentle bitter accent.

Bottle. Yellow-golden body with a small white head. Aroma has husky sweet grain and interesting peppery spice. Soft sweet body with a reasonable level of bitterness and grassiness. Overall it’s pretty average.

Fine malt aroma, hint of hops, cloudy gold, tiny white head. Malty taste, with soft hops. Nicely balanced, pleasanty bitter. Pretty good.

Light golden color wtih a small white head. Nose of hops and spices, with a clean, crisp taste. Good finish. A very solid German pils that was quite refreshing.

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Typical looking German pils , pale yellow with a nice sized pure white frothy head. Slightly hoppy spicy aroma along with some bready maltiness. Malty taste to begin, semi-sweet, slight metallic, then a nice enough hop bite at the end.Ok on the palate. Nothing really to this one, a average very drinkable clean German pils.

Bottle. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of metal, grass, sweet malts. Flavor is bitter, hay, and malts. I didn’t like this brew.
