Poured from a 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass. Freshness dated November 5, 2008.
Appearance - The beer is between straw and amber in color and a bit hazy. It has an attractive collar of pure white foam.
Smell - A touch of malt, perhaps, but mostly noble hop aroma. Floral, herb-like.
Taste - God, I'd almost forgotten how much I love this beer! Hop bitterness dominates the flavor profile but without the hyperaggressiveness of a DIPA. There's a smidge of toast flavor from the malt, but it's nearly crowded out by the grassy, citrusy hop flavor.
Mouthfeel - Perfect: dead-on for the style. Light-bodied and crisp, with fine carbonation.
Drinkability - Only halfway through I was ready for number two. Very sessionable. I could drink a few of these while watching a game or grilling outside.
I first tried Prima a couple years ago and it was one of my first ventures into craft beer. With a lot more drinking experience, most of it limited to ales, I'd put this beer forth as a challenge to anyone who tries to malign lager as somehow inferior. Prost!
