best Pils in Austria. open(!) fermentation, only aroma hops, spring barley and pure breaded yeast used. 5 week maturing process. hoppy, fresh, elegant! felsenpils (174) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 30, 2005
O.K., so it’s overpriced and being pushed as an import in a green bottle with German writing and very little reference to CA. Even to the point that retailers put it in the import section. But the good news is ... this is an outstanding European Pilsener! Wonderful appearance with tight carbonation and great foam characteristics. Nice bouquet of hops and malt without the typical US-micro characteristics. Ample bitterness and crisp clean finish. Better than the American competition, at the top of European Pilseners. A real treat which deserves great recognition. Don’t believe me? Get on an airplane to Germany and try all the thin, highly attenuated, lackluster Pils beers. Herr Braumeister, Sie haben mit diesem Pilsener Spitzenarbeit geleistet, und ich möchte mich bei Ihnen bedanken, daß ein solches Bier nun auch in Amerika gebraut wird! renffisch (891) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
Draught pint at Biergasthof Schiffner in Aigen i.M. Goldem, with a creamy head. This is simply my favorite Pils of all times. And since i’m a bit biased i leave it at that. Rsmadd (3) - Laguna beach, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013 does not count
This pilsner has a great smooth and refreshing taste. Light hop characteristics and subtle malt flavor make this beer extremely tasty yet light. Light carbonation and a clear light golden color give this beer huge glass appeal.

Trumer is my favorite pilsner available in a bottle. Fortunately, it’s widely available in bay area.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 Thisis a good, clean, crisp, yet also very tasty, pilsner with a nice bitterness and malty flavour. It is gold, rather bubbly, with a fairly large, but somewhat bubbly and slightly airy head (but even & good-looking) that steadily dissipates to a thin long-lasting top and leaves only hints of lace. The aroma is at first striong sweet grain, with grass and herbs. The taste has a light but definite malty grain body with a consistent herbal-grassy hop flavour and bitterness, with a lasting light hoppy finish that lingers. It’s not bursting with flavour, but it’s a great choice for a light, crisp, very clean pilsner that has a good bite and still has good taste. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010
I’m not a Pilsner fan.
Really, I’m not.
This one seems to take the cake though. This one is good. The green glassware bottle does not inspire confidence for we all know of the horrors of light-struck green-bottle beer...(see rolling rock). Nope, this one will do just fine. Noble hop aromas overwhelm the senses, it pours a very light pale with excellent head retention. Noble hops present a bit of a woody yet grassy aroma and smooth bitterness. The pleasingly clean and dry finish make this nearly flawless. beerguy80 (2) - - DEC 24, 2013 does not count
Very hard to get a great pilz in California. I went through my hop phase and it was nice for a while but I understand why I waited 7 mins with pleasure for a great pisner in Germany: it’s a hard beer to get right and Trumer is about as "right" as anything outside of central Europe.

U.S. version. Crisp, grassy and herbaceous aromas rise off the pale yellow, crystal clear body with a lacy white head and champagne-like bubbles. The sharp, crisp bite of the hops hits first and it’s so refreshing and clean it’s amazing. This is followed by the delicious cereal malt flavor with a light lemony sourness and an even lighter corn-like sweetness underneath. A light, lingering bitterness is left behind and just makes you want to take another sip. Tart, bitter and refreshing, this is an excellent example of a true Pilsner style beer. marksworld007 (1) - - MAY 8, 2012 does not count
One of my favourite Pilsners. Lovely grassy nose, refreshing and sessionable
