I smelled it and got nothing but cheddar cheese popcorn, I wonder if the line was dirty because the last time I had it in bottle I truly enjoyed it.
After getting over the cheddar cheese nose I started to really appreciate the beer, it is a nice clean pilsner. Smells like pilsner malt, noble hops. Nice and crisp
Tastes nice, very clean beer accentuating the czech Saaz and pilsner malts. Not very complex but I love it as a nice session-able lager.
Great mouthfeel, nice and creamy. Crisp earthy finish.
Serving type: on-tap

A good overall Pilsener. Smooth taste and easy drinking. Crisp taste with an overall light feeling to it. Ideal for a hot summer day. Not to nit-pick, but the price is a bit high compared to many other beers. Still, very enjoyable- I wouldn't turn on down!

brown bottle poured into a pilsner glass
a: Clear golden yellow with fine light to average carbonation. A gentle pour yields a finger of white head that dissipates after about 5 minutes leaving a decent amount of lacing which holds nicely to the glass. Pools of foam also tend to remain on the surface of the beer.
s: Nothing sticks out. A little biscuit balanced by a very subtle floral hop aroma.
t: Again, well balanced with a slight but noticeable hop bite. Smooth maltiness provides a hint of chewiness to the beer. Hops on the finish which is appealing as it lingers however I'm not getting floral as in the nose. Not nearly as hoppy as some have opined and definitely not citrusy. Maybe slightly more piny or herbal.
m: Very light body with the bubbles providing a slight tingle. Again I notice a "fine" quality to the bubbles. Doesn't look like much but I kind of like it. I think this works nicely against the malt too, tying the flavor profile together. I would like a bit more more carbonation in this beer.
o: Have to say I'm a bit disappointed with Prima especially after reading that it is among the absolute best in the style. Same as with Sierra Nevada Summerfest which is nice of course but also fails to impress me in any way. Certainly nothing bad to report but while interesting, also a little underwhelming at its price.
