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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.
