~...hint of Hawaiian cane..
Pours a golden yellow with a half-finger of white that disappears almost immediately not even leaving a ring in it's wake.
Aroma is faint but distinctly American adjunct with mildly sweet malt and corn predominate and a very slight hint of lemon citrus.
Mouthfeel is adequate with bubbles foaming in the mouth to give the illusion of body.
While I realize that beer is 99.9% water, this tastes closer to water than beer.
Lightly malted without any hop presence except for the light lemon in the background.
Slightly sugary sweet...very slightly....and definite corn aftertaste.
Pretty much like a Pabst watered down with a hint of sugar added.
While the bottle says, 'first brewed 1897', I doubt this is the original recipe. More like Pabst bought the name and added sugar cane to their own recipe in an attempt to 'authenticate' it.
That being said, it's a non-offensive brew and really quite refreshing as a lawn mower beer on a hot day.
I could easily drink 4 in 90+ temperatures but would have trouble finishing one in an air-conditioned bar.

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 !
