Enjoying while on a vacation in Maui....
A- Pours a slightly darker than grassy color, and is very clear. The carbonation is plentiful and aggressive, rising to the top quickly. The head is actually quite impressive, starting out about two fingers thick and eventually settling down to a thick layer over the brew itself. Lacing is average at best, as there isn't much bubbly goodness clinging to the glass. Overall a slightly above average looking brew for this category.
S- Overall weak aromas, with primary smells of grass, dry grain, sweet corn adjunct malt and just a hint of hop bitterness. Nothing much else to say here other than that this smells very much like a macro with just a slight kick.
T- Again, nothing much to report here...main flavors of adjunct....corn to be exact, with perhaps the cleanliness of rice mixed in there as well. It finishes clean, with just a slight taste of metal blended in with a faint hop bitterness. Not bad, but not great either. The aftertaste is of sweet/bitter malt....kind of synthetic.
M- Thin bodied, lots of sparkly carbonation and an adjunct laden stickiness that clings to the palate in an unforgiving manner about says it all with this one. It needs to be drunk ice cold!
O- I've definitely had worse, but I think I've had enough tropically made beers to put this right in the middle....it's not a great beer except if you are drinking it right at about 2pm in the Maui sun on the beach! I'll probably end up having more in the future but won't buy it again. It needs to be crisp and clean throughout, which this isn't....sorry!

I'm normally a Heineken drinker and not a huge fan of American beers, but I really like Primo. Great taste and has a nice full bodied taste to it. I'm not really sure why it got such lukewarm reviews, but each to his own taste. As for me, I'm a big Primo fan now !
