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 aroma is definitely more interesting, bringing some toasty tones, as well as the taste. The hop presence is relatively (to the style) shy in the beginning, but at the end they show up with vigor. This is a good german pilsener, pretty perfect for new england summers.

S - Bottle I have heard it is fresher on tap

A - is excellent but I do not care what a beer looks like. I have had cloudy, muerky, hazy, clear, brown. black and almost black, red, auburn, amber, golden, etc... Colored beer and it has little to with taste.

Smell - like a good old fashioned beer or a czech pils. A little more floral smell.

Taste - it is great, clean crisp and hoppy. pairs with all food

M - excellent, light crisp

O - a great pilsner the only better pilsner is Sam Adams impierial pilsner. It is bold
But light and I could enjoy it everytime I drink beer
