Picked this up to see why it was ranked #1 among German Pilseners on this site. After paying $9.50 for a 6 pack I thought that this had better be damn good for this price, wrong. Although a decent beer it is far over priced and over scored by other reviewers. Prima Pils was far to carbonated, its carbonation was that of Busch Light which does not boast flavor only drinkability. For the style it has too much hops. To me it tasted very similar to Summit Pisener where you can get 12 for this price. All in all not that bad but why people rate it so high for this style?? I would call it American style hop pilsener.

A - 5. Just a beautiful crystal clear straw with many bubbles. 1/2" large bubble head from easy-modedate pour.
S - its awesome. I haven't tasted it yet at this point in filling out the review but the exceptional appearance and smell compelled me to review this beer fully, so here goes...
T - dry. Very hoppy for a pilsner. More bitter than sweet per style. Not bad, but unfortunately very let down. Looks and smells great but only an average beer, probably below average and wrongfully classified pilsner.
M - nothing great, nothing poor. 3.75, its pretty drinkable.
O - 3.5. Points docked for tasting far more an IPA than a pilsner.

4.23/5 rDev +4.7%

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.
