3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smallish white head over a crystal clear pale yellow pour, giving off floral aromas supported by some grass and citrus. LIght and clean on the palate with alively carbonation. Flavor is dominated by citrus and floral hops with very little malt character. Finishes with a light metallic bitterness.

Just another average ordinary pilsner (mine too, brewed in CA). Only sampled (thankfully didnít 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. Iím not a fan of all the grass in these pilsners.

Wow, this is extremely pale, I donít know if Iíve ever seen a more pitiful pour. Nice grassy aroma, though. Thin in the mouth with an unappealing bitter taste.

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 í06 World Beer Cup. I agree that it is a very good pils which is undoubtedly much better on draught.

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 thatís 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.
