4.35/5  rDev +19.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Crystalline golden under a small blanket of white.
Nose of caramel and brittle herb spice.
Begins malty, obviously. Full of bread, and caramel, and reduced pears. Vanilla forms after a moment or two, and it develops a tickling graininess. Turns just a touch toasty as it flows down the tube. It carries a brisk, well lagered sense. Ends with a relatively loud Germanic hop spiciness, coupled with a lingering caramel-vanilla sweetness. There is not a single trace or stray vapor of alcohol.
Medium-full in the mouth. Given levity through the steady, but compact carbonation.
This blonde bock carries some pilsener elements with it, while still steadfastly representing its given style.
What a tasty creation. (714 characters)

3.82/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Classic Czech floral aroma. (Saaz?) Tall white head, vigorous carbonation. Clear light yellow with a small measure of sediment. Sweet to the lip, thin on the tongue. Has a manicured finish -- a bit truncated but clean. This is a flavorful beer but very modest. It is drinkable and informal. A simple kiss of malt with only floral hops, nothing bitter. (351 characters)

3.51/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Crystal yellow with an overflowing think off-white head. Smells of hard rye bread or something close to it. The taste reminded me of caramel candy without quite as much sugar, it has a sharp start and sharp finish, not quite harsh. Hope lingered throughout but I didn't get a strong hoppy feel as other reviews seem to have. I wouldn't call it spicy but there was a slight burning sensation after a while. The carbonation was suffiicient, felt reasonably well in the mouth and was quite drinkable for a heavier beer. It's a beer I'll have again along with their double bock. (574 characters)

Mmm. Went well with my burgers made on toasted rye bread with a little German flair. Not bad. Clear golden color with a small head that fades rapidly. Nothing too exciting or exceptional. Likewise, the aromas are non-descript -- a melding of grassy, subdued malts, understated hops, and mild alcohol sweetness. Similarly flavored with just the most mild fruity character -- perhaps mostly just the alcohol being its normal sweet self. Finishes with a very mild but balancing hop presence. Certainly appropriate for the style, but not exceptional. (546 characters)

3.5/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Primátor pours a dark golden color and a nice white head forms. This head doesn't last long, though, instead reducing itself to a bit of foam around the edge of the glass.

It smells of malt and grassy notes, much like other Czech lagers. It has a stronger taste, which is no doubt because of it being in a different style than the famous pilsners or golden lagers. It has that characteristic bitter hint that is missing in many American attempts on European lagers. It's crisp.

With a 7 percent ABV level, Primátor has a few points more alcohol, which gives it a heavier mouthfeel.

Primátor is a good lager that keeps the fine Czech brewing reputation well intact. (676 characters)
