Notes / Commercial Description:
Prima! It’s a German exclamation of joy. It’s a recognition of accomplishment. It’s what escaped from our lips the first time we sampled this mighty pilsner recipe. With heaps of whole flower European hops and fine German malts, we achieved the bracing herbal bite and smooth malt flavor that we sought. Prima… an exclamation of Victory! Prost!

I've been trying some lighter beers lately. and since this one is highly rated, picked up a sixer last week. Its very good for what it is, and that's a crispy Pilsner. As others have said, it has a dry and slightly bitter quality to it which I find appealing. Hey, can't drink heavy 8%+ ABV beers all the time and this is a nice "first beer of the day" type of thing. I like it and will probably buy again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A pale yellow pour is covered by one and a half inches of firm white foam. The body is fairly clear and the resilient head leaves good lace.

The nose is of good strength and features grassy hops and pilsner malt with a touch of honey. Taste is dry and refined with a strong bitterness (for the style) right through to the clean quik finish. Hop flavor is a little grass, a little floral and the malt flavor is showing wheat. Carbonation is on the low side of medium and the body is light and smooth.

This is a straightforward, really good pils.
