Nice seasonal from Park. Mild malty aroma, taste is malt with some spiciness. Color is deep gold with a nice airy head. This is decent, and from my local brewery, so I’ll give it props.

Park Pirminator sporting the familiar red diamond "P" trademark is best served a bit colder (40-45F) than normal. The Pirminator poured up rather dull & fizzy into a stemmed bock-style tumbler. The loose, whitish head on top of the pale-deep golden body collapsed almost immediately after being poured. Very poor head retention per style. The aroma has some sweet graininess & cracker-like maltiness, but is mostly dominated by sulphery notes, sweet corn (DMS) and noticeable alcoholic overtones. The flavor starts off slightly biscuity with a light, grainy sweetness, but turns quickly towards a rather marked bitterness and ends in a straight-forward alcoholic fashion. The body is rather light and lacks creaminess per style. This is a fine spezialitäten beer, but I was honestly expecting a bit more from this infamous Rheinland brewery. I've long been a fan of the Pils, but the Pirminator lacked complexity and honestly didn't do much for me. This hellesbock would certainly be a decent aperitif with rich, soft-ripened goat cheese or paired with traditional German Jager Schnitzel smothered with sautéed mushrooms. Here's to the Seitz family & their Little "P" Man.

PROST! Beertracker
