12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. A new one to me, acquired a single bottle of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a miniature Victorian carriage adorned pint glass.

A - It pours a nice clear straw yellow colored body, lots of active carbonation, excellent clarity, and one finger of frothy white foam head. Looks very nice for the style. 4

S - The aroma is grassy, herbal, & hoppy, with a good biscuity malt presence. Nothing extraordinary happening, but very hoppy and aromatic for the style. 3.5

T - The taste follows the nose - crisp, bready, malty, with good grassy / zesty / herbal hop presence. 4

M - The feel is crisp, clean, and dry on the finish. Mildly refreshing and easy to drink, I'd say. Medium bodied with good carbonation. 3.5

Overall, an interesting German pilsener, definitely one of the more memorable beers in this style category that I've had in recent memory. Recommended for sure.

Trumer Pils -----4/5.

A very pale yellow color but shining as brightly as I thought it would, this one grows just more than half a finger of fluffy white head that drops down some pretty strong lace.
I like the impression and the feel the green bottle and the traditional very German presentation, but the green glass does make me wonder. Still, I get no skunk and only a slight note of sulfur I might expect from the hops. There's quite a bit of lemon and herb in both the aroma and flavor. The impression is of lemongrass and citrus, but with a bit of a sting. I find the esters to build up a bit too strongly through the session. Otherwise, this is absolutely a solid pils.
It's crisp and light, plenty refreshing, but that bite does build. It's clean for most of the way through until it catches up.
