This one pours out golden-orange and the aroma is of a floral perfume. The white head disappears quickly leaving a small lacing on the glass. The flavor is hoppy bitter citrus and leaves you with a dry lingering hoppy finish. I enjoyed this one very much. Try it. cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
A very pale yellow with fine carbonation and a creamy head, the aroma is noble hops and clean malt. The flavor is a fine balance between hops malt and finishes dry with a firm bitterness throughout. A fine example of a pilsner- if only the German imports were so fresh. v64 (134) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Tasty. The hops come through in the aroma, and the balance in the taste with the malt is perfect. Not too weak, not too strong. Very clean, easy to drink beer. For a pilsener, it’s great, but if you don’t like pilseners in general, it won’t hurt to pass this one up. mu11igan (133) - Davis, California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
12oz bottle poured nice, bubbly two-finger head. I’m not typically a pilsner guy, but this one is right up my alley. Nice earthy flavor. Lots of hops that results in a pretty bitter finish. I’ve had it on tap before, and it was better then. But the bottled version is definitely nice to have when sitting in the backyard on a hot day. mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 Hops and pale malt balance well in the aroma. The palate favors hops over malt, and the finish is quite dry. Prima Pils still tops my personal pilsner list, closely followed by Tuppers Hop Pocket Pils (USA) and Urquell (Czech Republic).

Great pils. Nice golden color, with hoppy aroma. Initial taste is slightly skunked, but that fades into a crisp taste of malt and hops. Aesir (130) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 22, 2002
A very good pilsener. A prime example of how a lighter style doesn’t need to be flavorless. HOORAH!! xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2003
generally, i don't like pils beers at all, but this one i did. hoppy (of course, coming from victory), a little bit bitter, but light enough that you can drink it all night. a beer i enjoyed a great deal. Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 1, 2003
For a pilsner, this destroys the myth that only the Germans and their Eastern European cousins understand this often complex style of beer. Thick and rich palate. Crisp clean flavor and not overly hopped like many American brewers lean toward. Delicious golden color. It screams for a warm spring or summer day. For pilseners, this is one of the best. Not a hint of skunk! ShawnMalloy (130) - Auburn, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Pours a light golden yellow. Body is light with a light mouthfeel. The skunky hop content is quite a bit of a surprise. One of the better light beers around.
