Clear golden color, white head. Fresh, fruity, herbal, hoppy taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high herbal bitterness. Malty and herbal scent. Much better than I somehow expected it to be, I became pleasantly surprised.
Bottle, brought back by dodo, shared with Parksy. Clear golden body, average white cap that quickly thins and fades. Aroma is grainy, slightly sweet, with a whiff of grassy hops. Palate is pretty much identical, with a dry papery note in the finish. The pale malt is better than average here, with a lightly toasty twist. Not bad. drjay44 (3739) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, short lived, white head, over a clear golden (SRM 5) body....nose is light malts, corn, cereal....taste is sweet corn, finishing perhaps with a bit of bitterness....mouth feel is light and watery, carbonation high. This meets all of the characteristics of a pale lager, a style not worth the malt. BJCP 5/2/8/3/4 Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2010
22 oz bottle from Thriftway - Pours a pale golden color with a nice white head. Tastes like a pretty decent pale lager. I don’t think there would ever be a great beer in this category, so this is probably fairly close to as good as it will get.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Corn, sweet malt, and paper. Corn, light sweet malt with a dry finish. A bit thin and fizzy. Ratman197 (14970) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, corn, light straw and a hint of spicy hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and hints of citrus and spicy hops with a crisp finish. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Clear golden straw with little head to speak of, just a thin collar of white which looks ready to disappear at any given moment. Faint grains with a touch of honey sweetness makes up all that I can discern of his nose. On a side note, we as humans smell far more then we taste, and when I smell very little in a beer’s nose, then I have even less hope left for what lies below. My first quaff leaves me disturbingly perplexed. There is some weird funky stuff going on in the Primo Island Lager. Cornbread dominates with a frothy mouthfeel which makes it very hard to taste much of anything. A dry weak finish, maybe some herbs, definitely some creamed corn, and I am left with a singular impression of bleh.

Mediocrity strikes once more. I feel like I am on some sick merry-go-round of lackluster lagers with no end in sight. ~sighs~ the things I do for my passion… Self-torture aside, if you’re ever in the islands or just at the beach relaxing, make sure to grab a good beer, i.e. not Primo, kick some sand back, and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of all that surrounds you, beer included.
Got this at the tiki bar on the peir at cocoa cocoa beach FL. Tastes kinda like a kona lager. Light, smooth, with a uniqh tropical flavor for a taste and palate. Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2010
The flavor is a little grainy and some grassy notes. Nothing special going on here.
In the aroma category it’s pretty basic with some grains.
Pours a golden color with a quick disappearing white head and some patchy lacing
The finish is pretty clean and crisp. Has some grassy notes there. It’s pretty easy drinking. If your looking for a mindless beer this may be it.
