Prima Pils poured a very pale golden. Crystal clear with a 1 finger eggshell white head. The head sticks on this one. Moderate carbonation rises in random spots off the bottom.

Smells of grain with a touch of sweetness. There's also a little hay in the nose as as well. A nice noble hop spiciness comes through at the end.

Taste is good. Like a pilsner but the flavors seem to be more pronounced than most which is a plus. There's hay/grassy flavor throughout that balances with the graininess in the back. The hop spiciness comes through at the swallow. This is all followed up by a nice mild but lingering bitterness that makes you want to take that next gulp.

Mouthfeel is where it should be. Light but not watery. Carbonation pushes it through.

Drinkability is high. The body and mouthfeel make it an easy drinker and the hops leave a nice lingering bite that leaves you wanting more. Very dry finish.

Overall Prima Pils is, to me anyway, what a pilsner should taste like. Pilsners are far from my favorite style but this is one I could easily drink often. Good offering from Victory.

This was a little more then average pilsner due to its bigger bite and flavor. Color was a cloudy yellow, no head, just some light fizzy bubbles on the top. Smell was a bit bitter from a fresh hop and some sweet maltyness. You could tell it was gonna have some bite just from the smell. Which it had, some favorable hop bite and bitterness, not bad, could've been smoother for a pilsner. I liked it more as it went along. Its a pretty decent pilsner and quite drinkable. The bite is right, but a little much for a pilsner in my book.

A nice clear, golden color. Pour results in about a two finger head, thick, white and heavy looking. Nice lacing.

Smells, well, like a Pilsener. Slight hops smell, grainy, a bit floral, clean.

Hmmm, a light citrus (lemon) flavor at first, quickly followed by a strong biscuit malt flavor that rapidly dissipates into a sweeter, slightly bitter taste... Clean, little to no aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light in body, dry. Carbonation is actively biting at the tongue.

This is refreshing! Not one of my favorite beer styles, but I really did enjoy it - I am not sure what to think of the overall balance of this, but... think I will have another... one of the better Pils I have had.
Good Stuff.

Poured chilled into my Pizza Port pint glass.

Appearance is very good. Yellow/light gold-colored with a decent eggshell head. Clear and light. Spot-on for the style.

Smell is very good. Lemony, grassy hops up front with a European-style malt background. Citrus peel. Floral.

Taste is very good. Lemon, wet grass, white bread, pale malts, lemon zest with an earthy bitterness that slowly fades away. Malt is wonderfully balancing the hops.

Mouthfeel is very good. Medium-bodied for the style, smooth and slightly tingly, perfect carbonation, dry finish.

Overall: Top notch German-Style Lager, way too easy to drink.

Picked up this single bottle yesterday at South Bay Drugs and Liquor.

Pours a straw, very pale, yellow with a decent two inch foam.

The aroma is of pale and nutty malts, slightly grassy but mostly spicy hops. It has a very delicate flowery aroma that comes through rather nicely…a bit of sweet corn too. I’m also getting some hints of caramel. A little buttery as it warms up.

Tastes very similar to the aroma, a wonderful nutty malt profile with a flowery and spicy hop finish…really well balanced. Finishes with some earthy bitterness and a little dryness which makes this absolutely drinkable. I also get a blast of citrus near the middle.

Pretty full bodied for a pilsner with medium carbonation…extremely drinkable.
