2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2011 What a heck happened? It now smells like yeast, and the hop aroma and flavor are rather dull and restrained. And the pilsner malt sorely lacks vividness. Rather unclean.
I continually revisit new batches in hopes of finding a good one. After years of doing so, I give up. This beer is far from the brightly lemony, herbal, peppery, and cleanly malty pils it once was. My last bottle was truly nauseating with downright putrid notes of circus peanuts,
spent tealeaves, and vitamin B. Over the past five years or so, this beer has varied from almost drinkable to utterly poor, with this particular bottle being representative of the latter. My score represents the average relative to my countless experiences.

hop and bread aroma. pale yellow body. stinky hop flavor and a bit thin. i drank this one close to room temperature, so... maybe this beer is much better when enjoyed cold. i am a bit disappointed because i had high hopes for “prima”, especially since it is rated so high. perhaps i should give this one another chance sometime. on a positive note, the label is very cool.

Uninspired…Sketchy aroma, light yellow coloring with a nice head. Overly bitter and slightly off balance. Not bad, but I expected better.

this is good pilsener, the head on it is ok does not retain very well. flavor is average and has a decent bite to it. there is a different kind of bitterness to it that makes it unique and easy to drink

Poured a hazy pale yellow with minimal head and no real lacing. Slight aroma like lemons and a little hops. A hop malt subtle taste and dry. I would say hopi but is kept in check, for me average all around.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2009 The aroma is hoppy with corn malt. The appearance is milky white gold with a thin head. The flavor is sweet with grassy and herbal hops. There malt is corn like but not too much. The palate is thin. This beer fails somewhere between average and pretty good.

Pours a pretty beautiful and cloudy pale gold. Less rusty tasting than most pilsners I still am not a huge fan. My least favorite from victory, but not bad.

Nice mouth feel but weak flavor and little lasting malt flavor. Generally fresh but uninteresting
