Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ 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 Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

Tangy hoppy aroma, of moderate intensity...Color is a pale yellow-gold with a fine, rich head that leaves sticky spots in its wake---very attractive in the glass...The flavor really rewards with its fresh, sharp hoppiness and light tang that had interesting resiny overtones...enough malt floor to provide support...the body was adequate, but the mouthfeel quite lively, helped by the fine dry finish...Quite a nice effort---another winner from this stellar brewery...

Very strong hops aroma with a hint of pine as I was pouring the beer. Very interesting. This is a pal golden beer that pours with a very nice head that lasts well and leaves a nice lace. The aroma is spicy hops, with a hint of something that I can only call a pine-like smell for lack of better terminology. The mouthfeel is very full bodied and silky. It has a nice hops kick in the aftertaste, but the malt is very present in the mouth.

Looks like the pilsners you see in the Czech Republic. A clean pilsener with a faint hop flavor and the flavor of malt in the back.

BCAR (222) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Unbelievable head. Hoppy straw aroma. Pale gold color. Clean and fresh initially with nice body and finishes slightly bitter. This is what a pilsner should be. Another winner from Victory.

8/23/03: bottle.
hop and bread aroma. pale yellow body. stinky hop flavor and a bit thin. i drank this one close to room temperature, so... maybe this beer is much better when enjoyed cold. i am a bit disappointed because i had high hopes for “prima”, especially since it is rated so high. perhaps i should give this one another chance sometime. on a positive note, the label is very cool.

Pours a shimmering gold color with shining edges, not watery looking like most. Aroma is mainly malty with effects of hops shining through. Flavor is smooth and mild, so easy to drink but still with some great hop esters. I really liked this one and it taught me never to underestimate a pils.

Wow, not what I expected at all, I mean I had high expectations since it is Victory, but really really tasty. A nicely hoppy Pilsener, that is nicely balanced and slightly complex. A really sweet pilsener, that I higly recommend.

This beer was acquired in trade with jgb9348, many thanks again. ** This is a golden/copper beauty! This Prima Pils pours a large fuzzy cream-colored head into my Pilsner Urquell drinking glass; it looks delicious! The aroma is hoppy, sweet, citric, some notes of lemon/lime. The flavor is magnificent, the hops are heavy but controlled and the malt is still easily distinguishable. Aurelius, two ratings below me mentions some showing of pine and spruce, my reaction from the first sniff, it’s always nice you’re your thoughts are confirmed. This is quit a fine Pilsner, with a strong lacing from beginning to end.

Nice, pleasant murky light golden pour with a generous head with decent lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus cleaning solutions and Canada Dry Bitter Lemon. Tangy sweet flavor with zesty hoppiness and some sprucey undertones. Good rendition of a pilsener. Very dry finish. Overall impressed with Victory thus far.

Hazy, lemony (I've used lemony in like 3 ratings tonight, but that's what it looks like) colored, OK label, beady white head which fades to poofy meringue. Smells like what I wanted all those Eastern European lagers to smell like: sweaty women, citrus, pine and malt. Nicely hoppy, sprucey. Perhaps a bit too thin, perhaps a bit too fizzy. Very refreshing.
