2.78/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

From a bottle...poured in La Trappe small tulip glass.
Pours a straw yellow with large head.
Aroma of straw, light honey, slight fig and bandaid.
Modest carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of light amber malt, watery minerals, slight corn sweetness, slight oatmeal, very light hops and soap water. While I don't drink many pilsners, I know a good bit of the style and have been drinking Pilsner Urquell since the early 1980s (not that that is a great example). Perhaps Victory Prima Pils could be said to have a touch too much hops for the style, but this brew is lacking in a bright flavor, hops in general, and even enough malts. While there's some sweetness, the brew is overall off from the style, missing the spritzy or spicy hops, missing any level of graininess, and with little malted barley. Though only a 12 ounce bottle, and while I will finish it, it's neither satisfying no to style.

2.9/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This one shines brightly, a clear yellow-orange color. The head, just off-white, makes it to half a finger and falls quickly but not as quickly as some, leaving some wisps of foam capable of some decent spotting.
Pilsner's an easy style in once sense in attaining to the strength and depth it needs, but very difficult in the technicalities to brew without flaws. As such, this beer's cleanness and drinkability point to some skill. It's floral and pretty grassy with a little sweetness and some citrus zest. There's just a buzz of spiciness in the nose and the tip of the tongue. There are some huskier, almost dry, grains underlying. To be honest, though, this would get more points as a Czech pils. It's entirely too weak as far as the hops are concerned, and a little too sweet overall.
It's light-bodied but not thin or weak like A-B's typical lager lineup. There's a solid crispness to it. I'm a little surprised by a certain creaminess.
