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.

Papsoe (25088) - 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

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 2, 2004
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 (7555) - 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.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2004
Floral hoppy aroma. Taste is slightly malty and too sweet. A bitter finish though. Also some fruitiness, but as a whole too stale for me.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 11, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 In the 0.5L bottle in Mannheim. Yellow high carbonated with a fluffy big head in my label-matching fluted glass. Good yeasty malty aroma. Strong bitter bite upfront that mellows with a few more sips. Not bad, but not the best German pilsner I had on this day. UPDATE: Now on tap at the Huber Haus 10/18/05.

turbothy (1086) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2004
Looks the part of the ubiquitous pilsener. Uninteresting (non-existent?) aroma. Peculiar bittersweet taste - more interesting than an ordinary pilsener, but this may be an acquired taste. It certainly doesn’t enchant me.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2004
Pale golden coloured. Slightly weak aroma. Rather sweet flavour. Quite thin.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2004
Golden color with a white head. The taste is watery with a light malty taste. Has a light spicy or grassy palate.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2004
A light yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is sweet with good notes of hops and grain. The flavor is well hopped and slightly bitter.
