Trumer Pils is an exquisite pilsner brewed with dedication to craftmanship that is signature of its proven heritage. Trumer Pils’ aromatic nose, vigorous carbonation, and dry finish will satisfy the most demanding palate. Einfach Leben! Simply Live! Note: Trumer has a brewery in Berkeley, CA that produces this beer for the US market.

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.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2006
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.

smcd (366) - USA - MAR 10, 2006
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.

DuffMan (9542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2006
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.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - DEC 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2009 Light gold in colour. No head to speak of. Dull aroma; grainy, old fashion malts. Bland flavours in the mouth, some dull malt flavour but it progressively builds body and weight. Finishes reasonably sharp with some bitter hops. Good summer arvo quaffer at best. (2.4)

Re-Rate October 2006
Standard visual treatment, big fizzy head early, dissipates quickly to leave a very thin, slightly creamy frothy cover. Lager like nose, fairly boring, slightly citrus, but not much else. Very boring taste profile, drinks like a Miller or Corona, just nothing happening. Fizzy, a bit more citrus and a hint of vanilla, but essentially very bland. As bad as it was looking 12 months ago (and in fact scores indicate much worse).

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Draught at Carolina Ale House in Durham, NC. Clear golden color with bubbly white head that laced the glass. Skunky hop nose typical of light European lagers ala Grolsch and Heineken. The skunky hops come out again in the flavor and are well a balanced with the dry malty flavor. Crisp finish. Not a bad beer.
