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.

Pale burnt yellow. Starts off with a two finger head but fades to a quarter inch film. Has a grassy malt aroma. Crisp malt taste. mild bitterness. Refreshing and feels light. I’d be happy to have this one again.

Christos (5882) - 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.

Ich finde es trägt den Namen Edelherb nicht umsonst es ist sehr Feinhopfig, erdig und würzig. Ein Pils für den herzhaften Gaumen.

On tap at Thin Man in Buffalo, NY. I believe this is the correct beer, it was labeled as Kulmbacher Pils. Nice beer, surprised to see the ratings so low. Clear golden pour, white head, just a nice clean German pilsner. Well made.

Clear golden, lush fluffy head. Spicy noble hops reigns the nose. Additional dry malts. Light body. Crisp and dry taste. Well-hopped. Medium bitterness. Solid pilsner.

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.

aaronyyz (5) - GERMANY - AUG 4, 2012 does not count
Pours with an nice head and is pale amber in colour. I’d say a typical pils aroma - grainy with some citrus. Less carbonation than some other pils beers. Mouthfeel is quite light. Nice grassy taste, with some hints of sweetness and finishes with a well balanced bitterness. Refreshing and very drinkable, but not boring.

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle, shared by Evan at the bottle shop. Fairly fresh for the German pils we usually see around here. Light grass and herbal hops, mild grainy/cereal malt, dry-ish finish. Solid, but still no Prima :)

3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2012
fresh bottle. sparkling bright gold body with a white, medium-sized bubbled head. beautifully clean but soft nose of both sweet honey / biscuit / cracker pilsner malt and a quiet German hop bouquet (dried grass, spice, light fruit) and a very-proper mineral / calcium carbonate smell to the water. crisp, smacking texture though it’s a bit oily and waxy in the finish (and a bit too thin). medium-light body, medium-light frothiness. what it lacks in texture it makes up for in aroma and flavor: though light, it’s very clean and fresh and without many off-notes. there’s a touch of metal and a touch of DMS here and there, more noticeable as it warms and breathes.
