2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just another average ordinary pilsner (mine too, brewed in CA). Only sampled (thankfully didn’t have to buy a bottle for this one) a few ounces at the local liquor store, so the appearance was yellow (not sure what the head woudl have looked like). Flavor was grassy, grassy, and grassy. I’m not a fan of all the grass in these pilsners.

Wow, this is extremely pale, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more pitiful pour. Nice grassy aroma, though. Thin in the mouth with an unappealing bitter taste.

21 Mar 2006 - Light sweet and hop aroma. Clear yellow colour, low head and suds lacing. Perfume floral hop flavour. Thin hoppy finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tremendous white head fills my footed pilsner glass and settles slow and rocky to form a scummy film over a pale yellow body frought with effervescence. Green-bottle skunkiness makes a bad first impression. Additional grasses and oregano chime in later with light, sweet floral notes. A thickness of body surprises me given its color, maintaining a solid presence before finishing crisp. Flavor finds bitter hopping atop light malt sweetness, finishing bitter but lingering sour. I bought Trumer after a friend of mine at work showed me a wire story about this beer winning gold at the ’06 World Beer Cup. I agree that it is a very good pils which is undoubtedly much better on draught.

Bottle. Clear light straw yellow colour. Head didn’t last long. Nice start, a bit bitter by the end.

On tap. I like how they try to distract you with the flute glass - "light". Yellow pour with light, fluffy white head. Clean taste, pils hops and a touch of malt - thankfully without any corn - and dry finish. OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 The beer that’s taking over the world. Deep, golden-straw color. Moderate hop aroma. Big malty backbone, but balanced nicely. Dry finish. Not much to say -- except it is better on draft than from a bottle and fresh from the brewery, it can be an enjoyale experience. Not a czech pils, but definitely drinkable.

Not sure what some of these other "pilsner experts" have been drinking but Trumer Pils is the best example of a German-style Pilsner(much different from a Czech style) I have ever tasted. Properly hopped with a nice dry "bite"...just the way it should be. The maltiness balances well - carbonation was superior. My only complaint is the green glass - i guess old habits die hard.

Pale yellow, moderate foamy head, no lace. Metallic aroma, a little sour. Bland grainy palate, very little hop character to speak of. I wouldn’t buy this again.
