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.

Bottle 4.9abv purchased via Alko/Kilpisjärvi Finland. Moderate white head, but fine lacings, and pale golden body with visible carbonation, small bubbles. Standard pilsener hoppy aroma. Tastes hops, grains, grassy malts. Mouthfeel not watery, actually nice, somewhat sweet but semi-dry. Ends with some bread and dough, and overall a quite full-bodied one. Enjoyed 2013-10-24 at RateMeet with Rune.

Tuoksussa ruohoista humalointia. Hieman vetinen suutuntuma. Taisipa olla huono lasikin, kun näin mitäänsanomattomalta maistui.

Keg. Pours a pale yellow with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is a boring "round" sweet hoppy concoction. Not bad, but no more than average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear straw yellow with a small lasting white head. Aroma and taste is of sweet grains, light citrus, hay with some light malt and barley, and mild bitterness. A medium body, crisp with moderate carbonation. Overall a good drinking and refreshing brew.

Bottle given to me by nuplastikk, pours a pale yellow with a ton of tiny bubbles and carbonation with a surprisingly thick white head and lacing in the glass, aroma has a little bit of skunk to it with some grain and sweet malt, the flavor has an off front end with some funk, but not the good kind, finishes with a metal like finish, tastes bigger than 4.9% and that’s not a good thing.

Tap. Pale yellow color. Small white head, stays. Sour and malty aroma. Sweetish, papery, malty flavor. Not offensive

Jonb5 (406) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Pale colour, small head which didn’t hang around long, minimal lacing. S: Hallertau hop, fruity, grassy. T: Lots of bitterness as title would suggest, notes of bread and grass. Balanced but uncomplex. M: Crisp, light body, well carbonated, coarse. O: A decent enough Pils, I think it might be hard to drink more than 2 or 3 because of the bitterness.

JaBier (5106) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle given to me by my brother. Clear gold pour with a huge white head. Aroma of malt sweetness and crisp hop. Malty flavor with a bit of sweetness before a crisp, refreshing and slightly bitter finish.

Really clear golden one with 2 fingers of white head. Grassy and citrus in nose with some cereal. In mouth is mostly citrus, german hops and some cereal and bread. Carbonation is high.
