2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not a traditional Pilsner. Thats what the label should read. Drank from a bottle. Maybe I got a bad 6 pack. The aroma was citrus. The palate starts off light fruity malt but ends with pretty strong hoppy bitterness. More like an IPA with that assertive hop finish. Not a bad beer, but just not a pils in my opinion. I feel like the way this beer was described on the packaging was misleading.

Nice Pour, hazy golden with white head, Smell lighter but well balanced hop and malt. Taste balanced with herbal notes and drying aftertaste. Smooth and balanced with a nice mellow hop profile. Solid Beer. Beer Disciples Rating: B+ 91/100

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, poured into a tulip tasting glass. Big pour leads to two fingers sticky white head. Beer is a beautiful golden straw. Retention is high, as is lacing. Crackery nose with spicy hop presence. Herbal and floral, with notes of lime and a touch of sulfur. Tastes surprisingly bitter for a pils. Over the top noble hop presence leads to the same leafy/floral notes, along with a high degree of minerality and a bit of soapy bitterness. Bright and lively carbonation keeps things light and refreshing, especially when paired with the dry aftertaste. This is simply one of the best lagers I have ever tasted. Very flavorful, bitter, drying and refreshing. Easily the best pilsner I have tasted. Kudos to Victory.

Wow - didn’t know you could get a pilsener like this in a bottle! Clear, pale color. Huge Saaz aroma and flavor. Moderate bitterness (high for a pils.)

Pours a light gold with a white head. Aroma of hops and doughy malt. Mouthfeel is very dry, and the taste is very crisp and hoppy. A very good pils.

America is still catching up in the Pilsner category. It’s a great taste for warmer weather, and the country’s future is bright in this category. So, any step forward is a positive. Prima Pils from Victory Brewing bites and fizzes like a good pilsner should. But the flavor of stinky Noble Hops is an acquired skunky taste with a vegetable-like finish. Pilsners are great beers. I applaud the effort, but would look elsewhere in this category. For a positive comment, the flavor is present and upfront.

Light body, slightly hoppy, great example of a pils. Got it at my local store, glad they sell singles.

Bottle at home. Pours a slightly cloudy straw to amber colour. Smallish head that stays around. Aroma dominated by resinous hops. Not the most subtly flavoured beer I’ve tasted - slightly sweet fruity base giving in to an intensely hoppy finish, just what I was looking for. A ’big’ lager and one of the best I’ve tasted.
