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.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
Golden colour. Gentle carbonation. Substantial mossy, herbal hop aroma. Soft body with a somewhat toasty malt character. Only a little bit of grassy hop - the promised herbal dryness never materializes and the finish descends almost to doughiness.

I was in the mood for a refreshing german pils, and despite the low ratings, this one does not disappoint - clear light gold with a fizzy head - effervescent body - crisp, grassy noble hop aroma, with light honey underneath, and a light, dry maltiness - full carbonation in the mouth - quite dry and light, with a lot of herbal and floral hop character - a very mild sweetness develops under this, but fades fast, leaving a dry, semi-bitter finish - yet another under-rated german pils.

Tasted at the San Diego International Beer Festival. Very light yellow with a fizzy white head. Strong wet grain aroma and taste with a clean crisp finish.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle. Has a great big lasting fluffy white head but the color is pale straw. Typical pils aroma with good herbal qualities. Pretty high carbonation. Has a very nice flavor profile. Some sweet malt balances the crisp but quick, spicy herbal hops. Clean finish.

3.4
NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Draft at Binny’s South Loop. I believe this to be the correct beer, had as Kumbacher Pils. Pours a nice looking soft yellow with a touch of chill haze. Nose is grainy, mild continental hops and wet barley. On taste, very drinkable and fresh with the green hops coming through just enough with bitterness to balance it all out. Nice enough Pils.

Cavie (4654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Very clear. Little aroma. Weak tasting with a bitter finish. Not a great example of the style.

Just an unremarkable beer from the start. The only Kulmbacher beer I’ve had was their eisbock, and it was outstanding. I wasn’t hoping too much from this one, and there just wasn’t anything here to really enjoy.

The beer pours out a standard golden yellow color, clear with a sudsy 2" thick white head. The head melted away just as quick as it poured. I’ve seen heads on a pour of Coke stay longer than this! Aroma is minimalistic. Light notes of grains, citrus with a bit of honey. Thankfully, nothing foul crept into this beer. Flavor is lightly hopped, dry with just a touch of malts (reminded me of corn). I’m sure there are worst offenders out there, but this one just didn’t grab me like I hoped. Still, it was refreshing.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - APR 19, 2009
Just finished a 33cl Bottle of this. Typical pilsner with a nice bitterness.Nothing over the top but was ok for the meal.

3.2
LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - APR 19, 2009
Buona pils, assaggiata al Matricola in viale Romagna (vicino a Piazza Piola); accompagnata con un panino con selvaggina e asiago. Insieme al Muzio, dopo il funerale dei PGR.

3.3
Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2009
Golden color with minimal white head. Very effervescent but not much aroma other than a little malt and hops. Maybe a little grass. Flavor is crisp and clean. A fine beer.
