look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours clear and golden with hints of copper and a fourth inch of head atop that sticks around for awhile and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass as you drink. Carbonation levels look solid. Very inviting for a lager.

S: Toasty malts, vanilla and butter with slight floral hop notes lingering in the background.

T: Follows the aroma quite well. Sweet grains with buttered biscuits, toffee, vanilla and cream give way to a lingering bitterness that morphs into a bittersweet flavor on the tongue after the swallow.

M: Light bodied, smooth and creamy with slight chewiness. Carbonation is tamer than expected. Super sessionable.

O: Honestly one of the better lagers I've had the pleasure of drinking. Simple, but well done. If you're looking for refreshment or drinkability, look no further.

330ml bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Golden color with a one-finger head that slowly settles
S: Full aromatics of raw grain & a hint of coriander
T: Rich biscuit/malt up front and a slightly herbal finish
M: Light bodied, smooth with pleasant carbonation
O: If the big American brewers would make lagers half this good, I would be much more inclined to drink them. This is what the style should be

Finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
Excellent aroma of grain and honey.
Pretty good tasting too. It has medium bitterness throughout with a touch of sweetness in the middle.
Crisp and medium body, moderate carbonation.
A delicious lager.

Primator Premium Lager
Pivovar Náchod a.s.
Style: Czech Pilsener
ABV: 5.00 %

LOOK: Pours a light golden color with fine clarity and soapy white foam. Leaves some lace on the glass.

SMELL: Bready malts, lager yeast and a herbal, grassy, slightly spicy smelling noble hop.

TASTE/FEEL: More or less in line with the nose, bready malts, cracker like yeast and a drying, herbal somewhat pungent hop. Well carbonated, with a mild bitterness and a gentle crispness. Light bodied, smooth, and easy drinking.

OVERALL: A pretty standard traditional lager here from the Czech republic. Soft hops in a lager for a refreshing character. Paired well with some assorted types of sushi.

Pours a brilliant gold hue with a slight chill haze casted over, poured this one into my vintage Miller High life flute pils glass. Bright white cloudy head forms thick and leaves nice even scattered lacing. Aroma has a nice pale malt biscuit sweetness with clashing green/grassy herbal hops. I'm guessing Saaz here with an underlying nice fruitiness. A nice brisk bitterness from the fresh herbal noble hop profile, you really can't beat a nice Czech style pils a bit of caramelized sugar from the light toasted pilsener malts, not the most interesting beer but a satisfying one. This is probably consumed in massive quantities closer to where it's brewed at almost 3 dollars for one 11.2 oz bottle, I wound be having that same experience. Crisp dry herbal hop finish, with a nice rounded malt body. Again super refreshing with sturdy carbonation really drinks great, I wish I had a couple more bottles.

Pint bottle poured in a Pilsner glass on 10-15-11

A: 2.5 finger head, not very thick, fizzled away quickly. Light yellow color, very clear and no cloudiness. Well carbonated.

S: Spicy and crisp smell, enjoyable and summery with buttery notes.

T: Very light, I'm getting fruit essences but for a thin beer it is very flavorful.

M: Like mentioned above, very thing. Enjoyable for the flavor and surprising.

O: Not bad, but probably wouldn't order again. Would be better if I had enjoyed it during the summer, it is light and flavorful enough to be enjoyed by even casual beer drinkers.
