12oz bottle exp. feb 15th

Cloudy golden color with orange hue. Fluffy head with good lacing. Smells very biscuity with some orange zest. Taste is very biting for a pilsner - the biscuity aroma translates, as does the orange zest. Tastes almost salty. Mouthfeel is a little dry.

Great pilsner. Even being past the best by date, it's some good swill.

Straw yellow, mostly clear and has a creamy one finger white head. There is a lot of carbonation so the head retention is also good.
I smell earthy hops and cereal grains. It's not an exotic aroma but at the same time it makes me want to gulp this thing down.
I mostly fast the malts from this with some herbal hoppy notes and a hint of lemon.
This is thin bodied, very crisp and dry. It leaves a herbal like aftertaste.
Prima Pils is a very tasty thin bodied beer. This could be drank all day long and would go great with some spicy buffalo wings! I'll drink more of this.
