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.

Dogbrick (10014) - 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.

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

Rune (9661) - 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).

pivnizub (9528) - 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.....

shrubber85 (9464) - 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.

DSG (9343) - Tel Aviv, - APR 28, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of herbal hops and some grainy and vegetal notes. Sweetish malt flavor, a bit bready, with a moderately bitter herbal hops finish. Light-medium-bodied. Not great, but kinda drinkable.

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, 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.

Borup (8980) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2006

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, 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.

Quack-Duck (8921) - 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.
