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.

Ungstrup (29284) - 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.

ghawener (1458) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUN 6, 2004
Bottle: Golden yellow witha medium foamy head that quickly fades. Dusty, fruity and sweet nose; taste is crips, refreshing and slightly bitter. A solid German Pils.

Sigmund (5104) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 11, 2004
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 (5 liter minikeg, bought in Norway - ABV here is 4.5%). Typical pils golden colour, large head. Hoppy but not very strong aroma. Flavour is surprisingly malty, slightly sweeter and less crisp than the somewhat stronger EKU Pilsner which I prefer (also in a minikeg). Still, this is a rather tasty pilsener, miles ahead of the many tasteless "neutral" pilseners you get these days.

Light golden in color,small white head.hoppy, with a clean dry finish.A good example of a European pils but nothing that impresses me.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2003
A quite average pilsener. Quite hoppy and bitter. However, not as complex as most pilseners from the Czech Republic.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2003
Average beer, like most Kulmbacher beers. Not bad, by any means, but its rather average. Flavor is a bit underwhealmning and watery with a bitter aftertaste. Good flavor of malt and hops though. Perhaps, if it was only a bit more flavorful, and the hops were less sour, then it would be a pretty darn good pils.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAY 10, 2003
Not so good ad the Monchshof original, but still a refreshing pils. The body probably is too thin, while the aftertaste too much hoppy and bitter.

jonas (5637) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 5, 2003
Negligible aroma. Plae straw color, low carb. dishwater bubbles in the head. Sweet medium base, but with a ok bitterhop building on top. Pretty standard classic german pils.

i'm not very impressed. dry kind of funky flavor. on the plus side its easy drinking and would be great for a hot day. so many other beers fit the same bill.
