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!

Pours a pale yellow, golden color with a small white head that dissapates quickly, and it is quite clear. The smell is big, juicy hops with a spicy background, seems like saaz hops and there is a light malt scent in the background. The taste is also dominated by hops, you get a resiny hop oil flavor as well as a citrusy tartness to it. The saaz hops really make themselves felt with a spicy middle followed by a biscuity malt flavor to balance the finish. The finish is dry and refreshing. The mouthfeel is smooth like a pilsner should be. This is a great summertime brew and im glad it's available in NC now.

An overall above average brew. I am not a big pilsner fan, but I would definitely try this one again. Appearance was a nice clear medium yellow with a decent lacing head. Smell was light malt with some fruity essence. Taste was crisp with the smoothness of the malt followed by the fruitiness of the hops on the finish. Mouthfeel was smooth and crisp..very refreshing. Smoothness definitely added to drinkability. A great beer for a hot summer day.
