Primator Premium 
Posted: 23 July 2015  Beer Republic 6.5 
Primator Premium from Czech Republic Primator Premium won the World's Best Beer Award in 2010 in 3 different categories:  World's Best Lager, World's Best Lager Premium, and Europe's Best Premium Lager.  Most beer awards mean about as much as most film festival awards.  Everyone takes home a prize. Still, it is above average, tasty, refreshing, and a real Czech pilsner at a price that won't make you weep.    
Avg price/liter: USD 5.88   ABV %: 5.0  Type: Lager   
       


If one had to name a signature brew for Primator, then Primator Premium would likely be it.   Czech beers are most famous for pilsners, 12 degrees Plato beers to be exact.  Plato is a European measurement denoting the concentration of sugars in the wort prior to fermentation.  24 plato means 24% sugars and, in turn, means a high alcohol content.  As a general but imperfect rule, you can divide the Plato number by 2.5 to get an approximation of the amount of alcohol in a brew.        

Thus, a 12 degrees Plato beer is 5% alcohol by volume most of the time, like Primator Premium.          

The Czechs are fussy about 12 degrees Plato for their pilsners.  Don't expect 6.5% or 4% lager most of the time.        

Primator Premium won the World's Best Beer Award in 2010 in 3 different categories:  World's Best Lager, World's Best Lager Premium, and Europe's Best Premium Lager.  Most beer awards mean about as much as most film festival awards.  Everyone takes home a prize.  This is certainly not the world's best lager or Europe's best premium lager. Off the top of my head, A.K. Damm from Spain delivers a better lager.           

Still, it is above average, tasty, refreshing, and a real Czech pilsner at a price that won't make you weep.  And you do get to reserve idiotic bragging rights that you drank some of the world's 'best' beer.
