COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps oí hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jacksonís 500 Classic Brews

When I think pils this is the classic example. Brite golden color. Two finger head with staying power. Clean crisp malt character. Almost one dementional. The hops come through in the finish for a cleansing bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 This beer puored a pale gold color with a nice lasting but small head. It was a little dry and a little hoppy. One of the best pilsner beers I have ever had. From. Bottle again in 2011. Even better than before. Aroma and flavor of hops is clear but not overbearing. Mouthfeel and palate are perfect for the style.

Art of Beer Festival 2004: Has a clear golden color with little head. Smell is of light hops. Taste is lighty malted and finished with a light hop bitterness. Overall not the best pils.

shadey (1962) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2004
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Golden color, no head. Citrusy aroma was the only decent quality. Very light in texture and palete. Hardly any lasting flavor. My brother said it tasted like licking an envelope. 6/2/5/3/11 RERATE: Golden pour with plenty of carbonation and a thin white head. Smell is a little sweet with some light hops. Flavor is MUCH better than I remember. Delicate and subtle but with plenty of taste. Malt flavor is much appreciated. The only thing I will knock is the aftertaste. That must have been what upset me during my first rating. The finish isnít clear, and leaves an unpleasent flavor in my mouth. The palete is right on except for that.

Had a beer tasting a few weeks ago, this was hands down the lowest ranked beer in the lot. I did not enjoy it at all. Small head, aroma definitely on the skunky side. Couldnt tell if the beer tasted old or not quite ready. A disappointment from Victory

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2010 Tap @ Victory & 12 oz bottle. Clear golden/yellow color. Small white head that didnít last long, minimal lace. Aroma was mild malt & pleasant, fresh European hops. Rich malt flavor, moderately dry, slightly tart. Pushing the medium bodied category for a pilsner. A good pils with a rather rich/smooth favor. 10/05/04. Very slightly sweet, nice malt body w fresh, clean hops, dry finish. Still very low carbonation unless the glass is put down fairly firmly then some carb can be seen rising {tap version}. 3.5 still holds. 5/6/06. After drinking Urquel fairly regularly I now like this Prima at least as much. Iím putting a 3.6 on it for now. Good stuff. 6/20/06 3.7 4/18/08: 3.9 now. Iím upping this to a 4, and will probably raise it again later. When Iím in PA itís almost the only thing I drink. Iím raising this to 4.5. I think itís one of the worldís best brews. I could taste the floral side of the hop flowers from a bottle i poured. Awesome stuff.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2009 Clear yellow color, with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, but not overpowering. Flavor is bitter hops and malt. A nice, relativly straight forward beer.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 26, 2004
This is my favorite Pilsener. Pours a clear golden color, with a medium sized pure white head, which is mostly diminishing. A hoppy, citrusy aroma. The hops dominate the flavor, but the subtle undertones provided by the malts is what sets this Pilsener apart. Finish is long and dry. Another hit from Victory!
