Poured from a can into a tall hefe glass. Slightly cloudy pale yellow color with good head and lacing. Sweet lemon smell. Slightly sharp grassy taste, crisp and refreshing. Good beer!

I like the bitter IPAs but bought this beer for a customer we were having over for dinner. He mentioned he enjoyed Pilsners so I had my local beer purveyor recommend something and Trumer was at the top of her list. I have to say, to my surprise, this was a very smooth and flavorful beer. Blended beautifully with the beach BBQ we served. I might try this on my own some time.

If you live in the Bay Area and you like Pilsner, this should really be all you buy. Sweet nectar of the gods. Tastes like sour dough bread with a honey finish. Top quality.

One of the best beers I had on my recent trip oversees. If there is such a thing as a perfectly balanced pilsner, this is it.

Body was light, but not too light. Hops were assertive, but not too assertive. Everything seems to mesh into a perfect crescendo of deliciousness.

I had many different beers in Germany and Austria, but this one stood out as one of the best. Please give it a try if you get the chance.

Poured from a can. Beer is a bright golden color - completely clear and quite effervescent. Thin fizzy white head dissipates steadily leaving no residual head or lacing.

Aroma is quite bready with some mildly sweet notes and a touch of grassy earthy hops on the back end. On point for the style.

Taste follows the nose with bready malts, some grassy hops and a light spicy touch. A hint of honey sweetness comes through.

Feel is light bodied with vibrant carbonation. Smooth with a mostly dry finish.

This is a classic example of the German pilsner style. Frankly it might be the best one brewed within the USA - figures since its an Austrian brewer. I will certainly be picking this one up again.

Top notch American version of a true Pilsner. Drinks nicely and tastes great.

Brief impression from a green bottle:

Clean looking and obviously filtered. Bright vibrant yellow beckons the drinker.

Ludicrously drinkable with dazzling subtleties throughout. Subtly spicy Noble hops lend this some nuance, help setting it apart from the pack - but it still has your traditional grassy hallertau character. Pilsner malt backbone. No off-flavours or faults. This is true to form fare.

Light-bodied. Crisp yet soft. Assertively carbonated yet not overcarbonated. Smooth. A bit dry, accentuating its scintilla of cracked grain.

A beer for all occasions, and a testament to the popularity of the pilsner style. This Austrian-American transplant would fool me in a blind tasting; it tastes exactly like the original (or, at least, my memory thereof). A classic that will please discerning drinkers and casual drinkers alike.

B+ / VERY GOOD

Solid Pils. Makes a soft visual impression but tastes like a contender. Definitely top 10 pills and love that it's a Cali native. Drink up ye sons of glory.
