Aroma of hay, citrus,spice, Hopped nicely so that it has a good bite without much bitterness. Lightly sweet, clean finish with a little spicy bite. Fizzy and refreshing. This is a very good beer.

Victoryís Prima Pils is a classic in the craft brewing world and a favorite among East Coast folk. Itís not hard to see why. This brew packs a lot of hop aroma into its light, golden, and effervescent body. The taste captures the best aspects of hops and lagers. Crisp sensations and moderate bitterness paired with clean yeast and bread flavor. The pairing of heavy hopping and lagers isnít as novel as it once was, but Prima Pils still has a special place in the beer world.

Bottle. A- Corn, grains, subtle hops, slight citrus. A- Golden color, hazy liquid, minimal white head. T- Subtle bitterness, corn, cereal, lemon. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Iíve heard good things about this and honestly, I didnít know why, itís a pilsener. After trying, I can agree that itís a decent beer and the added subtle hop notes are nice but itís still nothing that excited me. Pretty standard, good for itís style I guess, but not that great of a beer.

gold, clear, little lace. Floral nose. Medium body, intense flavors, bright and refreshing mouthfeel, dry but lingering and delicious aftertaste. Very bitter almost hiding the underlying sweetness, Hoppy is an understatement, floral, resiny, honeyed finish, very complex. Like for many beer drinkers, a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
My quest for an awesome pilsner brings me to this beauty. Itís everything Iíve been looking for: razor sharp crispness, hops that are tweaked a little higher than usual, a mineral salt body, & a lip smacking finish. Iím highly impressed & a little depressed that I may not be able to get this at home. Recommended.

12 ounce bottle. Honey gold color. Rocky beige head with nice lacing. Grainy malt nose with a citrus hop bouquet. Flavor is wonderfully complex hops that are nicely supported by the rich malt backbone. The citrus hops are firm and bitter. Nicely balanced. Very German-like in character.
