2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Uninspired…Sketchy aroma, light yellow coloring with a nice head. Overly bitter and slightly off balance. Not bad, but I expected better.

I am not a pilsner man, but had to try it.
Not bad for a pils. Really smooth, with a good aroma and good lacing, but as expected, lacks in body and complexity.
Worth trying on a hot summer day.
Possibly after mowing the lawn.

The beer-snob’s pilsener... This is, without a doubt, the best pils I’ve ever had. It’s only technical flaw is that it doesn’t follow the normal hopping rate of a true pilsener (true to style pilseners are usually slightly hoppier than normal lagers... This brew, however, pushes beyond the limits of normal pilsener hopping levels and actually has a an IBU level that could compete with a pale ale). That being said... I don’t care, it’s still the best pils I’ve ever had. Perfect color, as much malt & hop flavor as you can get from a pils, and completely refreshing. Another great job from Victory!

Far from my style of beer I guess when I drink a pils I actually expect more of a swill style which this is not. Slight hopnes to it for me all I really notice is the sourness of it.

a ornagish yelloish hazy color. very hoppy aroma. I have died and gone to heaven. this beer has the perfect balance of huge hops and enough maltyness to balance it. there is an amazing crispness, and refreshment. a must try.

Bottle, from Winter 08 variety pack. Golden pour with a decend head and carbonation. Hoppy aroma, and initial bite that has some maltiness to it and ends with a smooth hop. Very nice balance to it. Nice hoppy pils from a local brewery. Not nearly as hoppy as the Hop Devil, IMO the prima is a more drinkable beer overall. This is a quality brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle (date stamped "enjoy by May 29 2009"). Pours a clear gold-orange, some enduring 1/8" head but excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus, straw?. hops. Starts slightly sweet, quickly turns dry/bitter, and finishes the dry. Good for a pilsener, but not as good as last year’s batch.

A fantastic Pilsner. Intense flavor just at the limit of balance. Only flaw, if any, may be that it’s a little too everything (althought not as excessively hoppy as the otherwise fine Sam Adams Noble Pils). Great in bottle or on tap.

Good example of a classic pilsner, maybe slightly more hoppy, just not very interesting in any way.

I’m not usually a pilsner drinker, but I ended up with some of this in a Victory variety pack and tried it out. It’s still a style I don’t particularly care for, but this is definitely a well-made example of a pilsner. Very pretty appearance and a nice head, smooth flavor with a bit of the sourness at the end that other reviewers have mentioned.
