Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

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!

The best Pilsner that I have ever had! The hops are perfect and finished very dry.

Wow What a GREAT PILS! I decided it was time to revisit this one after the very flattering NY Times Article. This brew maybe the best Pils in the world right now.

Color is perfect. Nose while delicate has a definite and detectable balanace of malt and hop. The taste is just over the top. Sublte sweetness on the front end with an exceptionally clean, crisp, and dry back end. Carbonation on draft was excellent leaving nice lace rings down my pint glass. Great beer!
