Iím not usually a pilsner drinker, but I ended up with some of this in a Victory variety pack and tried it out. Itís still a style I donít 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.

For me, this is a true pilsner. A beautiful head and a somewhat cloudy body. Everytime I have this beer the first sip is never quite like the rest. The hops really stand out in this beer. Bag the wheat beers, and drink this all summer.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Real beer... maybe the best quality is that those who are unable to recognize real beer will really hate this beer. Malt bitchslap on the piehole, bitter as a soccer mom. Balanced like a well made bra. Drink now.

A pilsner has to be a cut above average for me to enjoy it because the style tends to remind me of the low quality, mass-market American beers. The Prima Pils from Victory did the trick. This is the perfect beer to have with a cold sandwich on a hot summer day. It pours a very pale straw color. It was crystal clear, with a lot of carbonation. The flavor is light and is pretty balanced between the malt and the hops. A clean, crisp, summertime beer.

Very nice Pilsner from Victory. Iíve had this beer before and didnít think it was very special. But itís a spot on Pils with a little extra hop kick. Golden color wih a nice head and a good hoppy aroma. Flavor was hoppy and very crisp with a soft malt backing which became more noticable when it warmed. Fuller bodied than other Pilsners Iíve had. Iíll bet this would score pretty high if it were put up against any Czech or German Pilsner. Very solid beer, but itís just not my favorite style.

I really like the way the hops are the focus of this, the malt and yeast support the flavors of the hops. I could drink these any time since the noble hop flavors are there and fresh with some nice herbal and floral elements. The finish is dry which keeps you coming back for more. Prima is a great example of an American Pilsner that pays tribute to German Pils yet puts their own stamp on it.

Pouts a hazy light orange color with a finger thick white head that retains well. Smell is definitely floral but doesn't linger that long. Wish aroma was as strong as the taste. Taste is floral hops. Also taste some lemony sweetness in the beginning but all the sweetness only lasts for a brief second before getting hit with the bold hops flavor. Full bodies. Light carbonation. Strong bitterness towards the middle and end. Crisp but not too fast on the finish. My rating is kind of low only because strong hops flavor isn't my preference. In its category I think it's a great beer!

Bottled. Very sweet malty aroma with a hint of alcohol and a decent note of noble hops. Nice malt flavor with a slight bitter finish. Hops come through more in flavor. Aftertaste is kinda bleh. I expected more hop aroma. But tasty.

Poured a light gold topped with a nice foamy head with very nice retention.Slight grassy aroma that was overpowered by citrus.Everything Iíve heard about this beer had my hopes high for a really great pilsner but I was sadly disappointed.Taste was much too bitter and tangy .kinda like orange juice.Sorry .but there are much better pilsners out there.

Bottle. Not the kind of brews I usually drink but I think if all Pils were made like this I would drink them more. Crisp, light, and happy.
