4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving from bottle. Smells of fresh clean grains with some flowery hop notes. Pours straw yellow, very lite body, and very moderate foam. Taste is clean and crisp with Chardonnay dryness and bitter finish. This is definitely my Prima pils if all that I have tried.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma is grassy hops with some light malts. Very drinkable, a good summertime beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Again I notice a "fine bead" quality to the bubbles. 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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours a clear golden color with a little white head. This is my favorite pilsner, because it doesn’t taste much like a pilsner.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw colored with a white foam head. Grassy hop aroma - Medium/Heavy carbonation - citrus flavors bring sweetness, but are well balanced by the hops giving it a slightly bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Throughout the glass there is a solid golden liquid. The aromas are that of a sublte hops at first with an earthy finish. At first the hops are hard to trace but once towards the end the hops explode through the glass. A different style Pils that will leave a lasting mark on your taste buds!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle poured into pilsner. Pours a wonderful semi-transparent gold with a good white head that diminishes relatively quickly. The aroma is fruity with floral overtones. Soft and light on the palate but still wonderfully full of flavor. Notes of hops, but not overwhelming, creating a nice, slightly bitter end. Wonderful beer.

I think this is an extremely under-rated beer. I never liked pilsners (or any lagers for that matter) and purposely avoided this brew. Finally, a neighbor coaxed me into trying this superb beer. I've gotta tell you that I think I this as good or better than Hop Devil!
