Well, its official this beer definitely smells like a pilsner. It pours golden with a decent head. Upon first taste, the bitterness gives you alittle pop in the mouth, but then the European malts and German hops come out more and more with every drink. Victory has become my favorite brewery and this beer holds true to its solid reputation. If your sick of the Canadian pilsners at Wegmans grab a 6er of Prima Pils and do you mouth a favor.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 The most delicious beer I’ve ever tasted! Wonderfully hoppy, bitter, and crisp flavor that is not too heavy, nor spiced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a bomber bottle at The Marketplace in San Diego, CA. Pours a clear straw-yellow. Aroma is lovely; very citrusy, with grassy hop notes. Body is light, and flavors include a nice, juicy fruitiness, herbal qualities, and a bitter finish which might be a tad too sharp and one-dimensional to some. But overall, this is a very drinkable and tasty beer. I don’t drink too many pilsners, but this one passes the test.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light gold and has a thin white head that sticks around while you drink. Aroma is fruity with a clean yeast and a light malty note. Taste is wonderful very crisp and the hop selection is on point with this and it takes over the flavor for a moment before the german light pils comes through. There is a citrus element that comes through the aroma and flavor that makes this beer very drinkable and refreshing, I think it is a good representation of style..

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is my favorite Pilsner/regular lager I’ve had. Light gold with a well retained, small white head. Aroma is full of wonderful hops, germanic in character with perhaps a little citrus in there. Taste is wonderful and balanced with complex, soft and bready malts, rich without being too sweet, classic pilsner style hopping with tones of herbs and subtle citrus. Definitely an american take on Pilsner. On the light side of medium bodied, and very smooth with a crisp finish. I’d agree with the commercial deScription that there’s something elegant about this beer. It’s also my new "most refreshing" beer, just edging out Fuller’s London Pride, and will be bought again for post-lawn work relaxation on beautiful summer nights.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 is it a pilsener? it's so delicoius with no annoying nose or corny taste. actually, has a surpising sweet malt taste, unlike most even czech pilseners. a pleasure the whole way through. note: a good one to wean stubborn americans onto something great.
