After the overwhelming sweetness of a DD Stille Nacht, this overwhelmingly dry pils balances out well. Tastes like a tough piece of bread. An enjoyable pils to be sure, and a perfect representation of the style.

12oz bottle. Light gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is grassy, grainy and spicy. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are spicy and crisp. Light, crisp and refreshing. Nice pilsner. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle. Pours a clean golden color with a medium sized, white, foamy head. Nose is straw and hay, with some fresh grasses and yeast thrown in. Taste is very fresh with some light malts and straw, finishing very clean and crisp.

Had this at the Flour City Brew Fest. Slight hops aroma. Some citrus and hops in the body. Crisp, a fine brew.

jb (3342) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Had at Rohrbach’s summer brew fest on draft. Not positive this was the pils they brought. No aroma, heavy hops in the palate, typical of the german style, watery finish.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Bottle. Clear light golden color with a short lasting, nice looking head. Floral, hoppy aroma. Bitterness is most pronounced in the flavor. Not my favorite style but a nice beer nonetheless.

jtw (1165) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2005
immense aroma of noble hops and grass, on a straw colored body. very refreshing, but a tiny bit too bitter and stinky--too many dusty german hops, if that’s possible. it’s good, but why so highly-rated? i need the hops version of "cloying" to describe this. smells more balanced than it is.

Let me preface this by saying that I’m by far the best beer reviewer on this site. I say this with neither malice nor hubris, but with love. Now, on with the show... Victory Prima Pils. Delivered in from Ohio via my brother from a diff mother. Aroma is jagged lemon hops, good-homegrown skunkweed, gorgeous, light as wafer. Pours golden delicious apple, thick in the glass with brief and bubbly head. Finestkind spidery lacings; I’m caught in its web, good god. Flavor: eternally hoppy, bright but quickly dead, bitter butter aftertaste, but too bitter (believe it or not), not enough butter. Thin side of thick on the palate. You know what that means; think! Why does it smell so-o-oooo much better than it tastes? Men’s Journal rated this North America’s best beer. North America’s best beer is ... is... I’ll keep you guessing, beastardo! Hint: this one ain’t it...

Bottle, from Julio’s. Enjoy by sep 03 05. Good nose, sweet and sour. Sourdough, little lemon, grass, Classic clean yellow/gold color. Good fluffy white head that faded quickly. Bitter flavors, lemon/grapefruit, a little tinny, some skunk, toasted grains. Thin body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish, nice spice on the finish. I like it, I’ve had APA’s that don’t have this much flavor
