(BA / BJCP)
Brilliantly clear, light yellow gold. Fluffy, well-forming white head. Little staying power.
(3.5 / 2)
Moderate noble hop, floral and lightly spicy. Moderate grainy pils malt. Clean profile.
(4 / 10)
Moderate grainy sweet, bread/toasty malt. Heavy noble hop flavor. Strong hop bitterness. Balance is tilted towards the hops. Finishes dry with significant hop flavor. Aftertaste is hoppy bitterness and heavy floral hops.
(4.5 / 17)
Light body, medium-high carbonation. No astringency, no alcohol warmth. Creamy mouthfeel.
(5 / 5)
Very crisp, hop-focused, easy-drinking beer. Hop flavor is quite heavy handed. Thought the pils malt, although should be light for style, was too light, and should have had more of a role.

A - pours a glowing crystal clear yellow. No head, bartender poured to the rim of the glass. Still looks pretty good though. Spotty lacing clings to the glass after a rigiours swirl.
S - aroma is light and fairly straight roasted. There are some leafy green herbal and notes possibly some mint and floral notes with lots of doughy bread.
T - doughy malt flavors up front with just a hint of sweetness. hop bitterness enters mid palate with lots of leafy herbs, and some crisp citric flavors. There is a bit of floral character in the backend followed by a lingering citric bitterness.
M - creamy yet crisp texture. Medium bodied but pretty big for a pilsner. High carbonation with tight zippy bubbles.
O - excellent American take on a pilsner. This is one of my summer go too beers. It is just flavorful and refreshing. A good times kind of lager.

Longtime favorite, first time review. Biased? Probably. I'll try my best to be objective.
Pours very yellow with a small white head. Retention clings throughout the duration of its stay in my glass. Leaves behind some soapy lacing. Nice clarity, nice color.
Usual suspects permeate the nose: fresh cut grass and a little lemon zest. It’s lack of “spiciness” stands out a bit when I think about other pilsners.
It tastes ultra fresh: probably a lot to do with the hops. Earthy, grassy, crisp. For a pils, there’s plenty of hop action, which suits me well. As in the nose, there seems to be subdued spiciness but it does make a nice appearance in the aftertaste. The malt profile makes me think of rye bread. Not too dry, not too slick.
Really very good. I went into the liquor store yesterday (Choice Mart on Mass. Ave.) and spent some time perusing their selection – dece for a liquor store. In the end I came away with a sixer of Prima – nothing exotic, just hits the spot on a hot summer day.

A- Like a macro lager. Clear, golden yellow. Typical looking for a beer.
S- Floral hops and musty grains! Not a clean smell, if you know what I mean. Very different for a lager, even a German Pils.
T- Hoppy! The hops imparts a spicy quality to the beer. Moderately bitter finish. Carbonation is very tingly on the tongue.
M- Almost a medium mouthfeel. But overall this is an easy drinking beer. The bitterness is making it hard to drink.
This was an ok beer, Nothing special. I don't think I'll buy this beer again. It's a little too bitter, and not refreshing enough for me to warrant keeping this around.
