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.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
500ml bottle with a golden neck, shared by Gaute. Firm, white head leaving nice lacework on the glassware. Clear, straw coloured body. Hay and pale malts on the nose. Rather faint taste of half-sweet, pale malts alongside a drop of herbal hops. Clean and soft in the mouth. Okay (Tromsø 24.10.2013).

Quack-Duck (7735) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2012
bottle from an Autohof on the A6. Clear pale yellow, large white head. Malty, slightly grainy base with some aromatic hops plus some bitter hops. Not as aromtaic as could be.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle from Ron’s Schoolhouse, Exton. Pale gold pour with 2-finger whitish head. Aroma of pale malt, slight hopcitrus and honey. The flavor was pale malt, some light syrupy apricot, and mild hops and citrus. Not terribly exciting.

Dogbrick (7585) - 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.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Bottle - Creamy floral aroma. Clear yellow color with ample long-lasting head. Creamy malt flavor with a very interesting bitter hops finish with a hint of smokiness. A very interesting pils - the more I drink, the more the smokiness came out. A very unique pilsener.

crossovert (6934) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
11.2 oz bottle of "malt liqour". Pours with a bright white quickly dissipating head that looks like soapy bubbles, not good for a pils. On the other side, the color of the beer is spot on. This one is maltier on the nose than most with herbal, medicinal hops. The mouthfeel is the most noticeable thing of this brew, it is significantly fuller than most pilseners, and I like it. The taste of this one is also classic pilsener, the hops come out more in the taste though they are perfectly balanced with the malt. The drinkability is up there, this is a classic German made pils.

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2011
Draught. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing white head. Clear yellow green body. Mild weak malty aroma. Malty flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste.

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 500 ml bottle. Finland. (HHOK). Clear golden colour with big white head. I was very surprised when I found milk chocolate aroma on a German Pilsener. Also a bit metallic and hoppy aroma. A bit harsh hoppy flavour with some metallic notes. Quite regular German Pils.
