Bottle. Pours a golden yellow. White head. Grassy hop aroma. Taste is slight malt with spicey hops. A fairly pleasant pilsner.

The second of four brews in a sampler pack from the nearby Victory brewery. A very clear greenish-gold hue with a diminutive loose-beaded head. Smells a bit like their lager, only significantly more hoppy. Very light, crisp flavor with just the right amount of hop bite before becoming IPA-like. Truly an awesome pilsener. Prost!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2005 I suppose this is very good for a pilsner. Its hard for me to consider this very good. Theres something thats missing, that you might find in a Belgian. This pours a pale golden/yellow clear color with a medium white head. Nice grass, straw, malty aroma. Good grassy natural pilsener flavor. I drank one straight from the bottle also and it was very good. Smooth, nice.

Pours a nice gold color. Nice malty aroma. Flavor is nice and hoppy with some malts coming through. A very nice Pils. Probably the best this side of the Atlantic.

I am not a pilsner man, but had to try it. Not bad for a pils. Really smooth, with a good aroma and good lacing, but as expected, lacks in body and complexity. Worth trying on a hot summer day. Possibly after mowing the lawn.

Yes, I like it. I like it a lot. Mouthfeel is spectacular--soft, round, like a pillow. Good head. Bitterness perfectly balanced with oh so subtle malts. Oh I like it. I like it a lot.

The highest ranked pilsener, so I was quite anxious to try it. And man, I wasnt dissapointed!!! Clear golden beer with a foamy white head, looks like the typical pilsener! The aroma on the other hand has some nice bitter hoppy and slighly cheesy tones. The flavor is surprisingly sweet with lots of hops and a good bitterness in the end. Also some fruity notes in there. Soft mouthfull. This is an excellent pilsener, I wish more breweries would make pilseners like this!!

Tonight I picked up a couple bottles of this simply because my local liquor store had it in the overstock clearance section for $0.49 each. I expected to end up with cheap, stale beer to chug down after a hard days work - but instead found an amazingly powerful, fresh brew with some astounding properties. Victory Prima pours very well and has just the right amount of carbonation and a quite cloudy golden hue, rather like a wheat beer with somewhat more of a golden tinge. Interestingly, one thing my sample didnt exhibit was the prominent head mentioned in other reviews (it was weak, almost nonexistent in fact) - one of the few downsights for this rating. The aroma is out of this world. The flavor is _intensely_ floral with hints of honey and spiciness, especially cinnamon and rose. In the end, what most sets this beer apart is the deep, long-lasting, intense aftertaste. I'm standing in the strawberry patch with Sally, and its no exaggeration to say it has the best aftertaste of ANY light-colored beer Ive ever tasted. In fact, this is the best self-styled American Pilsener Ive ever had, yet perhaps it would be better termed an Alsatian style beer, as this is much more like Fischer Bitter or Fischer La Belle than Pilsner Urquell. The final step is to run back to the liquor store tomorrow and snatch up the rest of those $0.49 cent bottles!
