very good example of one of my favorite styles, perhaps high expectations hurt this one, it was good not great and I never really found the abundant hops that I was expecting, good pilsner though

[bottled] Nice appearance, a bit unclear, with a nice full head. Aroma of a weak IPA. Soft but very refreshing. Sweet flavor with a hint of elder flower. Well balanced bitterness.

Ungstrup (35861) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 4, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma has notes of straw and hops. The flavor is sweet and again with notes of straw and hops. Good for a pilsener.

Im not normally into pilsners, but I must say that Victory Prima Pils is one that I would select again. A top-notch pils, better (and fresher) than many Europeans.

Pours golden and clear with a quickly diminishing head. Floral and fruity scent. Perfect balance of malt and hops for a pilsner. Nice and crisp with a pleasant bitter taste that runs through til the finish. Slightly malty flavor also appears on the finish. Great palate--totally refreshing pilsner.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2005 Bottle, dated "Enjoy by Mar 09 05." Reviewed in my basement as I watch a rainstorm seep water all around my beer fridge. Thanks to Dorwart for putting this in his fine trade. Yknow, Eric Asimov, wine critic for the NY Times, channels his uncle Isaacs smarts by reviewing beer once in a while, and his latest article had a thumbs up for this. But I think he missed the mark when he said that pilseners are not complex. This beer is very complex. I popped the cap to a whiff of strong beer that could be a slight skunk, but the odor dissipated. The pour is very pale, more like a macro, with a stiff, foamy "TV Beer" head. The malt taste is very light, probably light as you can get without adding corn. But malty, not sugary. Hops are there, but they are more for tang than bitterness, like a few bits of lemon peel. Finish is just fine, with a happy little hop prickle on your tongue. A well rounded pils tasted at the height of its maturity.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 Sampled on draught and was very impressed. Well balanced and expertly made pilsner. Malt with fruit, sourness, and a nicely bitter finish. Its not a big brew, nor does any aspect of the taste dominate over others. Vert smooth, tasty hop finish.

This is an Ok Pilsner. Straw, bitter, and grassy flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.
