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 (11352) - 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).

shrubber85 (10760) - 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.

rosenbergh (10645) - 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.

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 (10213) - 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.

pivnizub (10182) - 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.....

DocLock (9999) - 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.
