Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Primator Premium Lager

Medium-fermented beer with a full body, a fine distinctive bitterness, high zest, and pure hop aroma.

A taste sensation leaves you waiting for the next sip. It is typical of all types of Pilsner beers and for which Czech 12°lager is famous all over the world. Premium is the Pride of our brewery and uses only the highest quality ingredients. The lovingly controlled process ends with prolonged maturation at 1° C. It has a zesty taste, sparkling golden color and a long lasting white head. It leaves a feeling of slowly fading bitterness on the palate. It is suitable for all occasions - simply anytime you want to really enjoy beer. It is perfect with grilled meat, salads, and steaks. Serve thoroughly chilled in a tall glass. This prestigious beer stands for the unique art of brewing in Náchod.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours clear and golden with hints of copper and a fourth inch of head atop that sticks around for awhile and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass as you drink. Carbonation levels look solid. Very inviting for a lager.

S: Toasty malts, vanilla and butter with slight floral hop notes lingering in the background.

T: Follows the aroma quite well. Sweet grains with buttered biscuits, toffee, vanilla and cream give way to a lingering bitterness that morphs into a bittersweet flavor on the tongue after the swallow.

M: Light bodied, smooth and creamy with slight chewiness. Carbonation is tamer than expected. Super sessionable.

O: Honestly one of the better lagers I've had the pleasure of drinking. Simple, but well done. If you're looking for refreshment or drinkability, look no further.

330ml bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Golden color with a one-finger head that slowly settles
S: Full aromatics of raw grain & a hint of coriander
T: Rich biscuit/malt up front and a slightly herbal finish
M: Light bodied, smooth with pleasant carbonation
O: If the big American brewers would make lagers half this good, I would be much more inclined to drink them. This is what the style should be

Finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
Excellent aroma of grain and honey.
Pretty good tasting too. It has medium bitterness throughout with a touch of sweetness in the middle.
Crisp and medium body, moderate carbonation.
A delicious lager.

Primator Premium Lager
Pivovar Náchod a.s.
Style: Czech Pilsener
ABV: 5.00 %

LOOK: Pours a light golden color with fine clarity and soapy white foam. Leaves some lace on the glass.

SMELL: Bready malts, lager yeast and a herbal, grassy, slightly spicy smelling noble hop.

TASTE/FEEL: More or less in line with the nose, bready malts, cracker like yeast and a drying, herbal somewhat pungent hop. Well carbonated, with a mild bitterness and a gentle crispness. Light bodied, smooth, and easy drinking.

OVERALL: A pretty standard traditional lager here from the Czech republic. Soft hops in a lager for a refreshing character. Paired well with some assorted types of sushi.
