Pours a slightly creamy pale yellow color w/ a medum sized, semi creamy froth. Aroma is slightly lemony w/ musty grasses. Medum nectar w/ ample yet soft residual effers. A moderate malty backbone supports a semi fruity brew w/ pleasant citrus rind overtones and only slightly musty. The finish is bittered nicely. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated and a good lacing. . The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The excellent pilsener flavor contained notes of malt hops and crisp. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

On tap. Great glassware, like a kolsch glass on steroids. Aroma of wild flowers and green grass. Bright clarity with spritzy carbonation. It’s so nice to have a pilsner with fresh hops present (Berkley). Crisp finish with some sulfer. A spicy chicken taco with this one. lb4lb (2628) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2009 Light yellow, but slightly hazy with a bit of bright white head. Smell is of some yeast, and a light metallic smell probably from the head. Carbonation is right on, and very crisp. Taste is of malt, light yeasty, doughiness, and a touch of bitterness and ashiness almost, to finish. Drinkable, but too doughy and yeasty for my taste and not very refreshing as a result. alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - JUL 24, 2007
Nice grassy and hay tones, refreshing and crisp with a very light citrus background.. Finishes a bit sweet and flower nectar. Very smooth palate for a pilsner.

Cloudy gold with average head / Grain nose / Medium body, fat on the tongue with moderate carbonation and very muted hops / Sweet, with flavors of honey and grain / Smooth, creamy finish. Delirium (673) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
Draught. Pours golden with a smallish white head. Aroma is malty and grainy, slightly sweet, with some breadiness and a hint of hops. Flavor is malt and grain, with some bittering pils-type hops, especially towards the end. Nondescript but pretty well made. Kristatos (6) - USA - JUL 9, 2007 does not count
Picked up 6-pack at BevMo after hearing good things, and despite my aversion to anything in green glass. Sure enough, some detectable mercaptan from light exposure (when will breweries stop using green bottles??) but other than that, this was a fine example of German Pilsener. Slight presence of DMS present in a cooked corn taste only added to the overall flavor profile. Very nice head, color and spicy hops. Would be great if not skunked, was still very good as it were.

06-Jun-07 (12 oz bottle: Purchased at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) A reasonably good facsimile of a true German pilsener, but lacking just a bit of hop character. Malty and grainy with a soft, lightly bitter and slightly grassy hop flavor for balance. The malt base does a nice impersonation of its German counterparts, something rare in American-brewed pilseners, and I think that deserves some accolades. With a bit more hop flavor and bitterness this would be a beautifully crafted, crisp pilsener, but as it is, the mild sweetness of the malt has a bit too much influence. But let’s be fair, given that Trumer Pils is only available to the SoCal consumers via BevMo’s internal intrastate storage and transportation, it’s quite possible, actually quite likely that the reduced hop character is simply an issue of storage and handling. Light hop aroma sits behind the malty nose. Dark-straw color is tarnished ever so slightly by a touch of haze. Small in initial size, the white head retreats to a thin ring, but leaves a thin spider web of lacing on the glass. This has the potential to be a pretty solid German-style pilsener. It has all the right characteristics, it just needs a crisper hoppiness, so I look forward to trying this beer when I know for sure it’s fresh. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2007
