Looks nice in the tall Pilsener glass with a lovely golden color. Big resiny hop flavor dominates the beer. Light body and very crisp. Incredibly fragrant with wonderful floral hops. Plenty sharp, near to acidic. Bitterness is quite pervasive.
A tap selection at the Linkery in San Diego. A thoroughly drinkable hoppy beer, but quite focused and even intense. The dissenter in our group thought it taste of Comet Cleanser.

A - Clear golden with a sticky white head, pretty good lacing, some tiny bubbles floating to the the top
S - Floral hops, with a touch of pear and apple.
T - Same as smell, touch of sweet apple or pear then some pretty good hop bitterness that is quite enjoyable.
F - Needs more carbonation imo, just a tad would make this awesome, will try another, maybe this had a bit of carbonation let out of it.
O - Great beer, awesome flavor, needs a touch more carbonation and it would be my favorite pils, but for now the noble pils wins.

Prima Pils. Best before July 20th, 2012. Poured into my recently acquired Founders pint glass (thanks Mad Mex Robinson and Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week!).
Bright gold in color with tremendous clarity. Some rising bubble action. Fluffy off-white head with a mottled top. Sticky and clinging despite leftover water from the glass rinse. Looks fab. 4.0
Citric hops and earthy hops provide a sweet and spicy hop aroma. Some mustiness from the grains with little or no yeast character, in other words, very crisp. Hints of orange peel, lemon, and fresh herbs. 4.0
Big zesty hop burst at the beginning. Parallels with a spicy finish, as well. Very dry in the middle-to-end. Husky grains, citric fruit peels, and herbal notes make for one avant-garde, but tasty pilsner! Love the spice from bittering whole-leaf hops. 4.5
Easy to throw down. Would have like a little more carbonation to keep it sudsy and amplify the spiciness of the hops, but this is just fine. Full-on body for a pilsner. 4.0
Possibly my favorite domestic pilsner, and one of my favorite domestic lagers. One of the best finishing beers I've ever had. Great stuff. 4.0
