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.

Clear golden with a medium white head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel notes. Flavour had malty with mild hops that gave it a bitter finish.

Bottle. Yellow with a nice big creamish well lasting white head. Aroma of hops and bit fruitiness. Flavour is fresh and bit crispy, some sweetness, good hoppiness with some maltiness. Dry bitter finish. A good tasting German Pilsener.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Light golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt and hay. The flavour has a nice, dry and slightly citrussy bitterness and a very light malty sweetness. It’s refreshing, quenching and pleasantly dry.

BeerandBlues2 (10039) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours brilliantly clear dark gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is crisp Pils malt and spicy hops. Flavor is crisp Pils malt, light corn notes, medium spicy hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

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 (9004) - 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.....

Drake (8980) - 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.

Sammy (8910) - 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

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2007
5L keg at our Septoberfest party. This beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thick and frothy white head that diminishes slowly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of mild hops and grainy malt. Light-bodied with a bready malt and hops flavor. Not a whole lot else going on aside from touches of spice. The finish is clean and earthy with a short-lived malt aftertaste. Average-ish.
