Brewer Brand Hype: The flavour experience of Premium will always leave you wanting another sip. This is the same of many a Bohemian beer, the style for which the Czech Republic is world-reknowned. Primator Premium is the pride and joy of our brew master. After choosing only the best natural ingredients, the meticulous production process is rounded off by a lengthy maturation at the temperature of 1°C. It has a strong, balanced flavour, sparkling gold colour and long-lasting head. There is a classic, moreish bitterness on the palate. A versatile beer, suitable for drinking any time, in celebration or comtemplation. Whatever the moment, we know that you will enjoy our beer!
Label: Primator continues a 140 year tradition of brewing award winning Premium Lager using the time-honored brewing process and the best natural ingredients – finest two-row malted barley, world famous Saaz hops, proprietary yeast, and pure mountain water. Rich golden color, perfectly balanced flavor, and long-lasting head make this “2008 European Beer Star Award” Gold Medal winner one of the best lagers in the world.
The Brewski Review: Very tasty brew and full of flavor. It has a nice balance: not too hoppy or malty. Just right. This would be a good warm weather beverage served frosty cold. I would almost venture to say that there was a hint of sweetness to it.
Drinkability: Certainly would drink again.
Appearance: Golden yellow w/ minimal head.
The Buds: Well balanced.
TBR Cap Rating: 4.25 out of 5.
