In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Trumer Brauerei Berkeley Trumer Pils

Aroma: “The malty aroma leaves a clean, sweet bready biscuit initial impression. Slightly flowery and citrusy hops character, with some woody and spicy notes. Low sulfur with some mineral notes.”

Flavor: “Malty, biscuit sweetness is smooth, light-bodied, solid, and slightly sweet. The lemony, floral, spicy hops accent the clean malt bill nicely, and the high carbonation makes everything pop just a little. Finishes with just enough bitterness to make you want another sip—or gulp.”

Overall: “A wonderfully light and refreshing beer that leans slightly more toward a Helles in its focus, but overall, it is still well-crafted. It’s on the low end of a hoppy lager, but the high end of a traditional Pilsner. Enjoyable, crisp, and clean, and blended well throughout.”
