Like Mrs. Dash, this one hits the palate with a bit of lemon and spice. A clean, refreshing yet dry pilsener. Not my favorite style by any means, but I can understand why Prima is highly regarded.

This beer stretches the limits of a pilsner a bit, but it is so damn good I don't mind. A nice citrus aroma and flavor followed by a sweet snap of hops. Sweet, but not so that it sticks to the mouth. Overall refreshing, tasty and quite impressive. My hats of, once again, to Victory. Peace.

Just a bit of haze in the golden color, underneath a healthy head of white foam. Nice hop aroma hints of the bitterness to come. Excellent balance, satisfying mouthfeel with a crisp finish. Hats off to Victory for attempting to make the best pilsner; a brave undertaking that works very well and raises the bar. Wish I had bought a sixer.

I am not a lager drinker, and especially not pilseners, but I thought this beer was outstanding. Great German noble hop aroma. Brilliantly clear golden beer with a thick white head that laced my glass. Flavor is well-balanced between hops and malt, there is some good bitterness present, and the finish is dry. Absolutely no skunky/nasty flavors or aromas that I usually detect in lagers. Overall, this is a crisp, flavorful, refreshing beer!

Bottle - Has a nice yellow, amber color. My first thought - this is great tasting beer. Though it is from a bottle, it reminds me of the quality Pils you get in the pubs in Parague. Great, great hop aroma. My only complaint is that the head dissipated quickly.

This is a great pilsener from the time you pour it out to the last drop that smacks your mouth. Great color and head with a wonderful balance of hops and malt.

Very nice on this hot day in San diego. Lively carbonation, crisp, malty, and well hopped. I like this a lot. I didn't care for the beer I drank in Prague, and I drank a lot. This is fuller, stronger in alcahol, and tastes better in almost every way
