On the lighter side of golden, and bright, with a fluffy white head. The nose is full and floral, like a bouquet of fresh flowers, which enlivens the spirit. It's presented alongside a pleasant grassy (even minty) aroma. The strong hoppy flavor is somewhat surprising for the style, but works well on top of the bready backbone. The finish is wonderfully dry, clean and very dry in fact, but with spicy, lemony notes that linger on the palate.
This is, I think, a great American beer, one which takes the traditional Pilsener style and transforms it into something new, especially with its bold hoppiness. Especially lovely in the warm summer weather. Don't get me wrong, I love the big beers too. But Prima Pils is my highest rated beer.

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.

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
