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.

Alengrin (4329) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Typically southern German-style Pilsener with snow white, thin but stable, moussy head and light golden blonde colour, cristal clear as expected. Aroma reveals pale malt sweetness, bit grainy and cheesy, as well as aromatic Hallertau hops. Pure, clean pale malts taste, rounded, medium carbonation, clear but modestly hoppy in the finish, aromatic, medium dry. Not the biggest personality among German Pilseners but very decent and excellently serving its purpose as a thirst-quencher.

Frode (383) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle 50 cl.
Clear yellow, with decent white head. Straw and slightly sweet on the nose. Hoppy and dry bitter in the mouth. Good and proper German Pilsner. But nothing exceptional.

AndyHix (17) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Smelled sour and tasted the same. Quite bitter, but not in a pleasent pilsner way. I’ll keep away from this in the future

Douberd (4630) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle 500ml at home, poured into a pilsner glass, ABV 4.9% Dark golden yellow colour on the body, good activity in it and two fingers of soapy white head on top. Good retention, it leaves medium lacing on the glass. Nice aroma, grass, floral notes, only slighty malty, noble hops. Very nice taste too with malts on the background and up front hops and once again floral notes, light apple and an intense enough bitterness with a long duration. Medium thin body, quite dry on the palate. AVerage carbonation. Very good and highly drinkable pilsner.

jann3 (277) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Pours clear golden with a huge frothy head. Aroma is mostly malty and grainy, slightly sweetish. Taste is malty at first, but pleasantly bitter herbal notes strengthens later. Dryish finish. Very well balanced and tasty brew. (0,5 l bottle, best before 18 nov 2014).

seifer (2) - gescher, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014 does not count
Riecht anders als es schmeckt. Von daher irritiert es mich. Geschmack gut, aber irgendwie nicht stimmig.

massingasetta (627) - München, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
Anständige Schaumkrone und helles goldgelbes Bier lacht mich an in mein Verkostungsglas. Es riecht wie ein Bier riechen soll, es riecht nach Deutschland im positivem Sinne, nach Hopfen aus der Hallertau, nach Wiesen und Frische. Einstieg ist süffig und ein gute Malz/Hopfen Mischung. Der Hopfen geht geschmacklich linear in Körper und Abgang über. Wirklich ein einheitliches graduelles abklingen der Bitterkeit. Kulmbacher wird wohl deutlich unterschätzt. Fazit: Ein wirkliches Fundstück dieses Bier - Gut, gut, gut.

Trolleo (1236) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear golden color with medium sized white head. Malty aroma. Slightly bitter taste with more sweetness. Thin body, average carbonation. Nothing special.

rjplumer (971) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pale burnt yellow. Starts off with a two finger head but fades to a quarter inch film. Has a grassy malt aroma. Crisp malt taste. mild bitterness. Refreshing and feels light. I’d be happy to have this one again.
