First review. I figured since I'm drinking this, I might as well start here. I've read some reviewers who describe this as a typical American micro-brew taste. I agree, but we're still dealing with excellence here. The hops are overdone, perhaps, but it's the right kind of hops and the right overall balance.
A good way to experience a well-crafted hoppy beer is let it linger in the mouth a while. Then you taste additional characteristics of the beer. It's been a while since I've had Urquell, and I don't know all there is to know about the style, but I can tell you a few things I observed about Prima. The color is great. I'm having trouble describing the smell, but it's distinctive enough. As far as body and taste, it's not a one-trick pony. Mouthfeel is fantastic - quite enough carbonation, good balance of malt and semi-dry taste.
I'm thinking this would go great with some wurst and red cabbage. Though only 5.3% ABV, it packs a wallop. Savor, don't pound. Tastes just fine as it warms to room temperature.
