Slight age on this bottle, but little impact overall.
Nice spicy hop aroma. A bit of tartness/sourness blending in with the soft grains.
Slightly cloudy yellow/gold body. Dense but small white head.
Nice blending of hops flavor (quite strong and dominant) with the firm light malt flavor. Clean crisp quality. Nice hop flavors finish along with a lengthy bitterness. As it warms the malts take on a creaminess with the doughiness. Tingly and prickly carbonation.
Nice drink.

Just going to go ahead and say right now that this one great pilsner.

It pours with a beautiful 2-finger white head, which is dense and leaves lacing the whole way down. And the body is an attractive light straw color, with good clarity and plenty of apparent carbonation.

The smell is of fresh-cut grass and spicy, herbal hops over a present, but mostly in the background, bready-biscuity malt. Just a hint of sweetness creeps in, in an otherwise, crisp, hoppy aroma.

The taste is hop forward, but manages to stay classy. Crisp and refreshing, with dryness from generous amounts of herbal hops. The beer avoids any metallic taste, and it finishes clean and spicy. Awesome prickly mouthfeel, with just the right amount of chewiness.

Prima Pils lives up to the hype. Stock up, and enjoy it often.
