3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Nomad. Poureed a clear straw yellow with a well-retained cap of white head. Nose was crisp and clean with sweet pils malts, a touch of cereal, and grassy, herbal, and floral hoppage. Flavor found just about the same stuff.. add a touch of honey sweetness. Malts were smooth across the middle, bitterness was well-placed, and the finish was crisp and refreshing. I enjoyed it... sounds like this one holds up much better on draught.

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 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.

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.
