Prima pils has finally arrived at the LCBO after many months of anticipation. You see, the LCBO shelves are clogged with boring pilsners from every corner of the world, very few of which are any good. When something different comes along that is known to be good people get interested.
Prima looks ok. It's a fairly generic looking pilsner. A light golden colored lager with a small white head that sticks around providing a bit of lacing and a small white cap.
The smell is nice though. Sweet malts with some lovely floral hops greet your nose with every sip. Tastewise this beer has a quite sharp, clean hop presence initially followed by a slow smooth sweet aftertaste. It's just what you need in a pilsner and it gets better as the beer warms up.
Mouthfeel is refreshingly carbonated and this leads to excellent drinkability. Prima pils is a solid example of the style and I'm glad to have it as part of the regular rotation.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
Serving type: on-tap
