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.

On tap at Deep Ellum. Served in a 1/2-litre mug. A clean clear light golden brew. Light biscuit sweetness. Crisp and refreshing.

kidmartinek (3722) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Clear, bright golden yellow. White head is thick, full coverage. Smells sweet like augar, flowers, and tastes like corn, barley and medicine. A sweet, floral pilsner. Really throws you off if youre looking for a pilsner.

ruigo (1153) - PORTUGAL - SEP 18, 2014
50cl bottle. Clear yellow colour with a foamy white head. Grain and floral hops in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is light swet at start with some bitterness and dry finish. Overall, a nice regular german pils.

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.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Typically southern German-style Pilsener with snow white, thin but stable, moussy head and light golden blonde colour, cristal clear as expected. Aroma reveals pale malt sweetness, bit grainy and cheesy, as well as aromatic Hallertau hops. Pure, clean pale malts taste, rounded, medium carbonation, clear but modestly hoppy in the finish, aromatic, medium dry. Not the biggest personality among German Pilseners but very decent and excellently serving its purpose as a thirst-quencher.

Frode (258) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle 50 cl.
Clear yellow, with decent white head. Straw and slightly sweet on the nose. Hoppy and dry bitter in the mouth. Good and proper German Pilsner. But nothing exceptional.

AndyHix (17) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Smelled sour and tasted the same. Quite bitter, but not in a pleasent pilsner way. I’ll keep away from this in the future

Douberd (2339) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle 500ml at home, poured into a pilsner glass, ABV 4.9% Dark golden yellow colour on the body, good activity in it and two fingers of soapy white head on top. Good retention, it leaves medium lacing on the glass. Nice aroma, grass, floral notes, only slighty malty, noble hops. Very nice taste too with malts on the background and up front hops and once again floral notes, light apple and an intense enough bitterness with a long duration. Medium thin body, quite dry on the palate. AVerage carbonation. Very good and highly drinkable pilsner.

jann3 (117) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Pours clear golden with a huge frothy head. Aroma is mostly malty and grainy, slightly sweetish. Taste is malty at first, but pleasantly bitter herbal notes strengthens later. Dryish finish. Very well balanced and tasty brew. (0,5 l bottle, best before 18 nov 2014).

seifer (2) - gescher, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014 does not count
Riecht anders als es schmeckt. Von daher irritiert es mich. Geschmack gut, aber irgendwie nicht stimmig.
