I am not a pilsner man, but had to try it. Not bad for a pils. Really smooth, with a good aroma and good lacing, but as expected, lacks in body and complexity. Worth trying on a hot summer day. Possibly after mowing the lawn.

Yes, I like it. I like it a lot. Mouthfeel is spectacular--soft, round, like a pillow. Good head. Bitterness perfectly balanced with oh so subtle malts. Oh I like it. I like it a lot.

The highest ranked pilsener, so I was quite anxious to try it. And man, I wasnít dissapointed!!! Clear golden beer with a foamy white head, looks like the typical pilsener! The aroma on the other hand has some nice bitter hoppy and slighly cheesy tones. The flavor is surprisingly sweet with lots of hops and a good bitterness in the end. Also some fruity notes in there. Soft mouthfull. This is an excellent pilsener, I wish more breweries would make pilseners like this!!

Tonight I picked up a couple bottles of this simply because my local liquor store had it in the overstock clearance section for $0.49 each. I expected to end up with cheap, stale beer to chug down after a hard dayís work - but instead found an amazingly powerful, fresh brew with some astounding properties. Victory Prima pours very well and has just the right amount of carbonation and a quite cloudy golden hue, rather like a wheat beer with somewhat more of a golden tinge. Interestingly, one thing my sample didnít exhibit was the prominent head mentioned in other reviews (it was weak, almost nonexistent in fact) - one of the few downsights for this rating. The aroma is out of this world. The flavor is _intensely_ floral with hints of honey and spiciness, especially cinnamon and rose. In the end, what most sets this beer apart is the deep, long-lasting, intense aftertaste. I'm standing in the strawberry patch with Sally, and itís no exaggeration to say it has the best aftertaste of ANY light-colored beer Iíve ever tasted. In fact, this is the best self-styled American Pilsener Iíve ever had, yet perhaps it would be better termed an Alsatian style beer, as this is much more like Fischer Bitter or Fischer La Belle than Pilsner Urquell. The final step is to run back to the liquor store tomorrow and snatch up the rest of those $0.49 cent bottles!

Deep-yellow to light-golden with small head and lacing. Aroma of malt, hops and sweetness. Medium-bodied, nicely hopped with dry hop taste and maltiness on the side. Crisp with minimal carbonation and very refreshing. An excellent beer for the summer and a very good pilsner.

Boutip (5232) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Bottle: Poured a clear golden colored beer with almost no head. Carbonation is really weak which seems to be a problem with some of the Victory that I had lately. Aroma is quite subtle has I would expect of a pils but the taste is way too sweet for a pils. Iím guessing they put too much of cascade hops in this. There is some way better pils out there.

Wow I donít get this beer at all. Pours Pee yellow in the glass. Very little head to it. Nose is very weak, coming off overly sweet. Attack is dominated by the taste of water. Finish is bitter and and unbalanced. Maybe I just got a bad one?

Clear yellow, white head. Hoppy crisp clean aroma. Crisp hoppy flavor with a decent malt backbone. Very easy drinking, full flavored, and enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Bottle Pours a clear bright pale yellow with a very strong nearly white head that lasted quite a while. Aroma is clean crisp and slightly yeasty/hoppy. Tastes of yeast and malts with a little honey in there. Feel is crisp and quick. Easy on the carbonation. Yeah itís a pilsner, but its tasty and quite refreshing. My first of several "Victorys" coming up. Thanks to Probiere for the trade
