UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Pours like filtered gold with a clean and lasting white head which lingers with good lacing throughout the glass. Mild hops and straw in the aroma. Very crisp solid pilsner flavor but with a fantastic and unexpected fruity finish/aftertaste. I may be crazy but Im sure I detected plums, apricots & even blackberries or casis. Ive rarely been disappointed by an offering from Victory and this one was no exception!

Pours crisp, clean, and golden. Very light color with lots of carbonation. Head is fluffy, pure white, and leaves a good amount of lace as it quickly settles. Aroma is cool and hoppy with hints of malt. Somewhat typical fragrance for a lager but has a bit more cleanliness to it. The bottle I sampled expired back in April but I cant really tell the difference. I guess Ill have to find a fresher bottle somewhere and sample it to see if I am missing something. Flavor is sweet, hoppy, a bit fruity. Definitely not typical of the style. This is a clean crisp beer with good hops character and lots of malt complexity. After sampling a nice variety of beers I have decided that I am definitely an ale guy, but this is a lager that satisfies my palate. Overall, Prima Pils is a great session beer. I like it!

Pours a clear, golden beauty. Drinks far much too like its pedestrian sibilings. I was hoping for more crispness - instead it had a round palate and a pear taste.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Light yellow with a decent white head. Nose was a little weak, with only hops apparent. Very light flavor, the hops dont overpower anything. The finish is very smooth, with some hints of fruits. Goes down easy without a bitter aftertaste like some other pilsners.

Poured a light gold topped with a nice foamy head with very nice retention.Slight grassy aroma that was overpowered by citrus.Everything Ive heard about this beer had my hopes high for a really great pilsner but I was sadly disappointed.Taste was much too bitter and tangy .kinda like orange juice.Sorry .but there are much better pilsners out there.

I drink this all the time, but never bothered to rate it before, inching my way to 100, I figure why not. Anyway it has a saaz aroma right off the bat and pours out a golden yellowish color with a big fluffy white head. It has a nice pilsner taste, not at all skunky like other main-stream pilsners. Nice and smooth, wonderful beer for any occasion.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 Pours a golden yellow hue with a large frothy white head. Aromas of slight pine, hops and citrus. Flavors are fairly hopped, yet balanced with flavors of pine, mint, and a little lemon. This is probably the best pilsner known to man kind and is probably in my top 50.

This is a great pilsener (Im enjoying this reminder) ... smooth, delicate, slightly sweet. The ending is rather bland and leaves it somewhat short. Overall though another offering from Victory that gets two thumbs up ... theyre not way up though which means there is some room for slight improvements.

IMtheOptimator (1166) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Poured a murky yellow with a huge frothy white head that left a thick lacing on the glass. The aroma is rather citrusy and floral, with a subtle sweetness to it. The taste is unique. Very little sweetness, but with a citrus fruit character with a very very dry and hoppy finish. Complex enough, but probably not my preferred style.
