I have had this beer before… and I REALLY like the mouthfeel on this brew. But after reading about this, and hearing it compared to Miller Lite it might change my thoughts on it. Oh, probably not. It smells good, it tastes good, and has SO much flavor to it.

The beer smells incredible, and has a wet, yet dry nose to it. Beers like this make me think of walking the streets in Europe. The beer in Europe is better, but perhaps it’s because it’s Europe. Now, what’s this beer taste like?

The beer starts smooth on the front of the palate, and slides down the back of the throat smooth, and crisp. Then, after all that a VERY dry aftertaste hits you. Going back to this, comparing it to Miller Lite, it’s not even in the same category. The bad thing about this beer is I could chug it! I just can’t get over that aftertaste and how dry it stays.

The beer doesn’t have a very big ABV, but that’s okay. It doesn’t need one. The beer is just so good. Plus, the aftertaste sticks around forever. I just love this beer. I might call this a summer beer based on the taste of all the summers I am having this season. Regardless, I love this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pilsener glass. Enjoy by September 13, 2011.

A: Pours a very solid straw color with a nice bubbly bone white head that has some very nice retention.

S: Some nice corned barley with a light spiced hop note.

T: Nicely hopped up at the forefront and that taste lasts throughout the mouth. There is some bitterness thrown in there as well and there is a nice balanced malt throughout.

M: Very crisp and refreshing with a nice light body. Light to medium carbonation. Nice solid tingle on the palate of the hops.

O: I loved this pilsener. So much taste and so refreshing. I want more.

Had my first Prima on tap at the last stop of a pub crawl. After beating ourselves to death with high abv Belgians all day I wanted something on the lighter side. What a good choice.

Came home the next day and only picked up a six pack, just in case my tastebuds deceived me and it was just a fluke. Opened the bottle and,,,Nice.

Look at Prima in a glass and you'd say it might be an offering from BMC. One taste, however, and you'll know there's a bit of pride put into the brewing of this fine grog. The pure white head laces till the very end. The carbonation is nice and suttle. The taste is a light citrus/hop combination. It immediately makes you want to have another sip. I'm picking up a citrus smell, lemon? An absolutely great choice for the summer season. I could pair this with just about anything off of the grill. I am by nature a lover of strong Belgian browns. There comes a time though, when I crave something ligher. This is the perfect beer to relax with while lounging around on a warm summer's day. I would definetly recommend having this one in the fridge for the upcoming summer.
