COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

When I think pils this is the classic example. Brite golden color. Two finger head with staying power. Clean crisp malt character. Almost one dementional. The hops come through in the finish for a cleansing bitterness.

Skunky but may have been the bottle. For all the good ratings on this I was hoping for something a bit more. Couldn’t get past the taste so will re-rate when I try again.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 The most delicious beer I’ve ever tasted! Wonderfully hoppy, bitter, and crisp flavor that is not too heavy, nor spiced.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 brown bottle poured into a pilsner glass a: Clear golden yellow with fine light to average carbonation. A gentle pour yields a finger of white head that dissipates after about 5 minutes leaving a decent amount of lacing which holds nicely to the glass. Pools of foam also tend to remain on the surface of the beer. s: Nothing sticks out. A little biscuit balanced by a subtle floral hop aroma. t: Again, well balanced with a slight but noticeable hop bite. Smooth maltiness provides a hint of chewiness to the beer. Hops on the finish which is appealing as it lingers however I’m not getting floral as in the nose. Not nearly as hoppy as some have opined and definitely not citrusy. Maybe slightly more piny or herbal. m: Very light body with the bubbles providing a slight tingle. Doesn’t look like much but I kind of like it. I think this works nicely against the malt too, tying the flavor profile together. I would like a bit more more carbonation in this beer. o: Have to say I’m a bit disappointed with Prima especially after reading that it is among the absolute best in the style. Very nice of course but doesn’t really impress me in any way. Certainly nothing bad to report but while interesting, also a little underwhelming though I wouldl buy it again.

Pours clear yellow, little head. Aroma grassy, biscuity. Taste is balanced maybe a touch of caramel with hops behind. A good clean lager.

One of my favorite pilsners. Beautiful golden color with a touch of cloudiness. A nice florally hoppy flavor hits your tongue, followed by a light sweetness. The finish is a touch dry, but not too much, with a slight lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very light crystal clear straw with a nice white head. It smells like hops, lemon, apricot, and cotton candy. Lightly carbonated but fairly crisp. Flavors are pretty straight forward. A little doughy yeasty malt, grassiness and straight to the hops. It’s very close to Pilsner Urquell, but cleaner.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Pours a golden yellow with a full head. Can smell the hops. Not really a fan of the style. Crisp and hoppy with a dry finish.

A beer that summer was invented for. Nice hop bite, with a bit of floral hops. It beckons you to keep drinking. Freshness can be a concern, because without the hop bite the drinkability suffers.
