COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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

PRIMA PILL’S IS ONLY GOOD ON DRAGFT. THE BOTTELS TASTE FUNNY THEN DRINKING IT COLD ON TAP IS TASTEY. ITS A GOOD AND SMOOTHE ALE THAT HAVE LITE FLAVER OF FRUIT AND SPICE. DONT CONFUSE THESE PILL’S WITH MILLER LITE’S PILLSNER THEY. ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT. MILLER IS TRIPLE HOPS BREWED BUTT THE SECRET IS DO THEY’RE OWN HOPS WHAT PLINY CREATED TO BE THE BEST BEER IN HISTORY. LET ME TELL YOU VICTORY THAT YOU ARE NO PLINY BUT THAT THANK YOU FOR NOT SAY (IPA "INDIA PALE ALE)" ON THE LABEL. TRUTH IN AVERTIZING IS IMPORTANTE.

Bottle. Clearish body, nice white head. A hoppy bite at first taste, but clean finish rectifies this. Improves as it is drunk. Crisp.

Pours a nice light gold color with a thin white head. Quite a nice aroma, with a nice hops balance. I liked the citrus tang, which was fresh and upfront. This is not a wimpy Pils, but neither is it overpowering. I’m not a huge fan of Pils brews, but this one is different in my books. All in all, a very nice brew, and I’d like to pair it with some grilled chicken and vegetables on a warm , sunny day.

Light yellow pour with a light frothy white head. Lots of grassy aromas reflected in the flavor with some good bitterness. decent overall

Reminds me of the pilsners that can only be gotten on tap in Germany. Color, head, aroma are as good as it gets for a pils. Flavor is amazing. This is as good a bottled pilsner that can be found stateside.

Draught at Pub in Ida Noyes. Clear golden with one finger white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy, you can tell there are some hops in this. Clean and refreshing, with hops in the middle and end. A really good pilsener.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Hear about this one on Craft Beer Radio. Poured an impressive yellow golden color with ample sparkle and a big creamy white head. Superb taste! I am very delighted with this pilsner and look forward to the next five bottles from the six pack I bought.

12oz bottle from a variety pack. Pours a golden yellow. I smell the lemon but not the orange as other have said. very dry finish. Not too bad. will drink again..

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.
