COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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

Light and hoppy floral aroma which is quite pleasant. Yellow, slightly hazy appearance with a decent size white head. There’s a nice hop bitterness for a pilsner. Medium-bodied and lively, should be equally enjoyable for pilsner and ipa drinkers alike.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 brown bottle poured into a pilsner glass a: Clear golden yellow with fine light to average carbonation. A gentle pour yields a finger of white head that dissipates after about 5 minutes leaving a decent amount of lacing which holds nicely to the glass. Pools of foam also tend to remain on the surface of the beer. s: Nothing sticks out. A little biscuit balanced by a subtle floral hop aroma. t: Again, well balanced with a slight but noticeable hop bite. Smooth maltiness provides a hint of chewiness to the beer. Hops on the finish which is appealing as it lingers however I’m not getting floral as in the nose. Not nearly as hoppy as some have opined and definitely not citrusy. Maybe slightly more piny or herbal. m: Very light body with the bubbles providing a slight tingle. Doesn’t look like much but I kind of like it. I think this works nicely against the malt too, tying the flavor profile together. I would like a bit more more carbonation in this beer. o: Have to say I’m a bit disappointed with Prima especially after reading that it is among the absolute best in the style. Very nice of course but doesn’t really impress me in any way. Certainly nothing bad to report but while interesting, also a little underwhelming though I wouldl buy it again.

Bottle (bomber) poured into a tumbler (not the best way to enjoy it, I know). Pours a golden yellow with a frothy head which diminishes to a light ring of foam. Aroma of dry hops, way more intense than I could’ve imagined. Very, very floral for a pils. Light malty character. Tastes very bitter for a pils, as some other reviewers mention, to me this brew is more of an APA, even on the brink of being an IPA (the hop character is too dry for that though). Body is light with a thin texture, carbonation is lively. Moderately abrupt, bitter finish. Objectively speaking, this brew is very well done, but this is not what I had in mind when I bought this. Too intense (hoppy/bitter) for a pils. But again, not a bad beer.

This pils pours a nice golden hazy color with a small head. The nose is slightly herbal and of robust hops. Flavors of tangerine,grapefruit peel, and finishes clean and crisp. Great pils!

Pale but beutiful and just the right amount of bitter hop malt mix for a warm afternoon... no real celebrity hop stand out but a well crafted stand by.

AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Pours a clear golden yellow, with one finger of foamy white head. Lots of bubbles flowing through the glass for as long as there’s beer in it. Smell is somewhat faint; earthy and of grassy hops. Taste is similar but much more clear; a very smooth flavor with a crisp finish of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is very thin, with medium carbonation. All around an excellent beer, and one I wouldn’t mind drinking regularly.

Think I got a bad sixer of this stuff. I just didn’t like it a whole lot. Giving Victory the well deserved benefit of the doubt, I’ve rated high (Yeah I know it doesn’t seem that way but what I got out of the bottle seemed like a macro holland import). I’ll have to re-review this later. Light golden in color with a nice creamy white head. Sweet hoppyness in the nose bit of mown grass as well. Lots of dry hop flavor with a bit of cardboard taste in the background. Bit of veggie flavor in there also as well as a tartness that runs around the tongue.

This is a very good pilsner...clean and crisp. Nice golden color with lots and lots of hops!! Yet again another wonderfully crafted beer from Victory! Keep the Victory beers coming!

Pours hazy deep gold with a quick dissipating head. Smells...mmmh hoppy, saaz hops all over the place with lemon and white grapes. Taste is crisp dry saaz hops and lemon. Great crisp, dry finish. Body is near perfect per style and quite refreshing. This a a brew I hold up as an example to macro-swillers that Americans actually make better lagers than the "king of beers", seriously, they need convincing sometimes. Drinkability is great and the flavor never dissapoints. This along with Hacker-Pschorr Hefe are my official lunch brews.
