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.

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light, clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Light, pale malt aroma with some grassy, clean-smelling hops. Flavor is fairly sweet with faint, lightly toasted biscuit and fine, crisp bitters. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes mildly sweet with dry, clean hops. Solid all around.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2007
Pale golden/yellow color, quite quickly disappering white head. Malty, soapy aroma with some hops. Bready flavor, with some metallic notes after a while. Quite weak finish with a late bitterness.

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2008
500ml bottle (K market)
Looks like a bland lager, canonical scummy head. Soft dry malty aroma, a touch bland and lagery. However, it’s got a bigger taste than your average lager. It actually tastes like it is made of beer ingredients. Soft sweet maltiness, hints of a range of esters, and a pleasant bittering hop. Carbonation is healthy, and matches the softness of the body well. A touch crisper, and this would be an exceptional lager. Non-filtered would be great too.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2010
Can (kindly delivered by joss!): Golden with a greenish sheen, a bit unclear; grassy hoppy nose with a delicate bisquity and pale-malty background; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, soft MF; slightly lingering pale-malty and hoppy finish. Surprise, surprise: Quite a good brew from a macro-brewer.....

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2005
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Faint floral hoppy aroma. Soft bittersweet flavour, light to medium body. Slight malty start with a fine but average hopbitter finish. Clean and well-made Pilsner type but still nothing special.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2005
A touch of creamy head. Nice subtle bitterness to it. Smooth, with spice on tongue. Malty finish, went well with dinner. Light to Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a large head, nice retention and lacing. Grassy aroma with some grainy notes. Grainy and slightly fruity taste with a touch of a bitter finish. Medium bodied.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2012
fresh bottle. sparkling bright gold body with a white, medium-sized bubbled head. beautifully clean but soft nose of both sweet honey / biscuit / cracker pilsner malt and a quiet German hop bouquet (dried grass, spice, light fruit) and a very-proper mineral / calcium carbonate smell to the water. crisp, smacking texture though it’s a bit oily and waxy in the finish (and a bit too thin). medium-light body, medium-light frothiness. what it lacks in texture it makes up for in aroma and flavor: though light, it’s very clean and fresh and without many off-notes. there’s a touch of metal and a touch of DMS here and there, more noticeable as it warms and breathes.
