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

Out of a 12 0z ice cold bottle poured a golden brew with a nice white head.The aroma was of an abundant amout of noble hops with an underlying sweet maltiness.It was smooth on entry with a crisp bite of hoppiness.A very nice pilsener indeed.

OK-I really love Pils and this american version makes me proud to be from the US (but of German ancestry). Has a nice proteiny head that laces the glass, good floral hop aroma. Bigger than usual hop bitterness- bridges the gap between continental pils and big hoppy American beers. Easy drinking, good clean flavor, very nicely brewed, I could have a keg of this on tap at all times. Few if any other US breweries can make a pils like this. Gets a solid 4.

Fresh floral aroma that reminds me of drying clover, effervescent head that quickly diminishes to a bit of lacing, nice strong malt backbone with a pleasant bitter finish

Pours pale yellow with a good sized, white head. Aroma of straw and hops. Clean aroma, sharp. Nice lacing and lively carbonation. A distinctively bitter flavour and also a lingering, bitter finish. A satisfying pilsner but not for the faint of hops.

On tap at Dino BBQ, Newark, NJ. Beer pours golden with lively head, solid pilsner aroma - Saas hops, anyone? Crisp, wheaty attack, clean middle and a nice bitter finish. Simple, and solid. About the best American pilsner I’ve ever had.

This is my favorite pilsner. That being said this is best fresh and cold, as most pilsners probably are. Over hopped for the style but welcome by me. Delicious. Solid malt and hopped like a generous pale ale.

PRIMA PILL’S IS ONLY GOOD ON DRAGFT. THE BOTTELS TASTE FUNNY THEN DRINKING IT COLD ON TAP IS TASTEY. ITS A GOOD AND SMOOTHE ALE THAT HAVE LITE FLAVER OF FRUIT AND SPICE. DONT CONFUSE THESE PILL’S WITH MILLER LITE’S PILLSNER THEY. ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT. MILLER IS TRIPLE HOPS BREWED BUTT THE SECRET IS DO THEY’RE OWN HOPS WHAT PLINY CREATED TO BE THE BEST BEER IN HISTORY. LET ME TELL YOU VICTORY THAT YOU ARE NO PLINY BUT THAT THANK YOU FOR NOT SAY (IPA "INDIA PALE ALE)" ON THE LABEL. TRUTH IN AVERTIZING IS IMPORTANTE.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Pours a light straw with a strong head. Aroma is of the mildly grassy Saaz with hints of bready pilsener malt. Refreshing but lacked the crispness and lingering iron-mineral like finish of better examples. This isn’t the easiest style to produce. So hats off to Victory for a fine effort.

Pretty good american pilsener. A little hoppier than a pilsener should typically be, but not a bad thing. Very crisp and refreshing but has a grassy taste. Give one of these to your friend who only drinks miller lite for a special treat.

Bottle. Clearish body, nice white head. A hoppy bite at first taste, but clean finish rectifies this. Improves as it is drunk. Crisp.
