Weed ain’t like it was in the sixties, neither is pilsner. This is super dank yet true to style. Everything prima yet everything pils. Jack608 (1) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2014 does not count
One of the best pils on the planet the beer that introducted me to the craft beer movement

Yellow color, white head, aroma of lager yeast, malts, lemon, dough. Taste is very well balanced, light sweet and slightly bitter. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. tschof (4) - - AUG 5, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Admittedly not a fan of the style in general, but this one is so unique! Highly recommend for a summer go to as you relax and take in some rays or sit your butt on the couch. Beautiful color and aroma. Pour hard directly into pint or pilsner glass. Let foam settle, pour again. Sniff and enjoy! HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 Great white head with a wonderful spicy hop aroma backed by a nice wiff of malt. The palate is first malty then hoppy with a dry finish. Great balance on a hard to get right style. Excellent well made pils!

Tonight I have seen both extremes of lager. First I tried the bland horror of Bud Light, now I discover one of the best beers that I have ever known. Golden-yellow, big white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of German noble hops, especially Saaz. Flavor of hops, again Saaz, much floral and grassy stuff in there. It's nice that someone can make a really hoppy beer that isn't an IPA or APA. This hoppiness is held up by some soft sweet malt. It's light-bodied but in a good way. I'm really impressed by this beer. Most micros seem to avoid pilsners as being too close to macro swill, but this really proves what the style can do. Brianroz99 (123) - Mullica Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2001
This one is heavy in hops! A true pils, holds up to all imports!! ........ ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2002
Had this for the 1st time at the City Pages beer fest in Minneapolis a few months ago, and loved it, but the 3 oz I tasted were not enough to form a complete opinion. Now that I have, I have nothing but positive things to say. The 1st impression is a citrus fruit hoppy aroma. The appearance is unique; the cloudy, amber-gold hue with a thick white head provides an alluring attractiveness. This is quite possibly the best pilsner I’ve ever had, which means it supplants Urquell from the top of my list. There is so much flavor and complexity here, it is almost unfair to other Pilsners for Prima to be an entry in the Pilsner category. Nevertheless, the bar has been raised, and we all will benefit from competitors attempting to best the Prima! maybrick350 (4) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2008 does not count
I’ve been drinking this pils for years. I agree with the NY Times panel abbout being the best pils in the world. It’s always consistent, great dry finish. Subtle malt notes and just a great crowd pleaser.
