troopie (3848) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2020 Light gold body with white head. Grassy field aroma. Malty taste just like the Victory Prima Pils. Good hoppy notes. Wonderful finish. ajnepple (11423) - Lakewood, CO, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2020 (Thanks Vin!) Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of toasted grain, grassy hops, herbal/floral notes, mild earthiness and a light minerality. Similar flavor, adding mild malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Light crisp body with a clean/dry feel and a delicate finish. Well done. GDTRFB (7245) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 11, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2019 Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Grass, hay and bread aromas. Crisp with citrus and fresh cut hay upfront turning to mild sourdough before the earthy lasting pith finish. juiceisloose (2910) - Windermere, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2019 12oz can. Pours a mostly clear golden color and capped by a thick off white layer of foam that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of herbs, grass, and citrus hops over a clean, pale malt base with notes of lager yeast. The flavor follows suit and is very herbal and grassy up front along with some citrus notes and backed up by the pale malts and a firm hop bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a clean, crisp, and bitter sweet finish. I really like the citrus hops and bitterness in this one. Really damn good and easy drinking Pils. I could crush several of these. HippyHop (1187) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2019 Pint can. At first I was thinking this was about a 3.8 in my books, but the more I savour it, the more I fall in love. The nose is just... Wow. It's got the classic grassy/grainy Pils profile, but the grain complexity is so nice. It's got this really nice rustic vibe, hints of raw grain/cereals and honey, raw oatmeal. It smells like walking into the brewery itself. Taste is sweet grains/cereals, a touch of pepper, with a smooth, crisp finish that's modestly bitter. Like everything I've tried from HF it's just so smooth. At first I wanted it to be a bit more bitter but I'm not sure I would want to change this in any way... A beautiful rustic Pils.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2019 Medium golden color. Nice early Grey tea with pear and nectarines. Medium hoppiness with excellent tea character, slightly oily mouthfeel. Modest bitterness. Pretty tasty but nothing like a traditional pils. Very clean. daniele (12561) - ITALY - MAR 14, 2019

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2019 Tap at Mikkeller NYC. Clear golden colour, medium-sized white head. Grassy, herbal hoppy aroma. Light-bodied. Clean, herbal, light sweet malts, late earthy hops. Very much like a benchmark pils. Oakes (24715) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2019 Can. Hazy straw colour. Thin head. On the nose, nicely herbal and grassy, with a clean pale malt note. Moderate bitterness. Fresh, clean pale malts lend a vaguely bready note, with the noble hop signature coming in over top of that. The finish is balanced - I actually would prefer a bit more bitterness to come through. Good solid pilsner. ryanscourt (1842) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 Prima pils has always been one of my favorite beers. I would love to try side by side. From afar im still gonna give a narrow nod to Victory.
