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.

emacgee (3871) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a sharp clean straw yellow with a violent carbonation producing 2 fingers of sticky white foamy head. Soft and bready aroma with some fresh cut grass and hay. Mellow flavor. Very light body and crisp carbonation, not as sharp as Czech pils. Lightly bready.

Frank (2381) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
This pours a nice, clear golden w/ a big and lasting head of medium bubbles. Nose is grassy w/ hints of grain husk and a gypsum note as well. Flavor mostly follows suit but w/ a slight lemony citrus note and a floral overtone. Rather dry and drinkable w/ mild carbonation. Bitterness in the finish is a bit harsh and grassy but that’s only a mild complaint. This is a rather good pilsener.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2012
#920 Das soll ein Pils sein? Selten so gelacht! Sauerbier trifft es besser! Nichts gegen die oft dünnen bayerischen Biere, aber Pilsener Brauart ist dort wahrlich NICHT zu Hause. Test vom 8.9.2006, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,9,6,6,9,6 - 7,20

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle, shared by Evan at the bottle shop. Fairly fresh for the German pils we usually see around here. Light grass and herbal hops, mild grainy/cereal malt, dry-ish finish. Solid, but still no Prima :)

500ml bottle poured into a mug. Clear straw color, small white head that was gone quickly. Grainy nose, some grassy hops, mild metallic aroma and corn. Bread flavor, low-med bitterness, mild malt. Light body, dry, typical unpleasant bitter after taste. Not impressive.
