The Full Review

If we didn't know any better, we'd think this pilsner came from Germany. Actually, its origins are Austrian, its ingredients are German, and if you're buying it stateside, it was likely made in Berkeley, Calif., where Trumer planted U.S. roots in 2004. Pouring clear and golden with a fluffy white head, it emits aromas of German pilsner malt, fresh herbs, a touch of salinity, and an inoffensive hint of sulfur. The palate is delicate and bright, with a fine, prickling carbonation that tickles the tongue whilst scrubbing it clean, a plus for those drinking this with dinner. Bitter and spicy in the quintessential Noble hops way, this pilsner finishes crisp and quick, with floral notes fading from the palate, demanding another sip.
