Had on tap at the office in Summit NJ in a 16oz pint glass.
Appearance: Nice 2 finger head with excellent longevity. The beer had a nice coppery medium brown color with excellent clarity. Little lacing, but good head retention.
Smell: smells like its a hop bomb. Great citrusy hops and grassy smells came through. Good amount of fresh fruit with some nice hoppy bread scents came through.
Taste: Very nice! Full and wonderful beer with a very complex., yet pin pointed flavor profiles. Immediately after swallowing you get a tremendous dose of mandarin orange juice comming through. Its really amazing how much its aftertaste is like mandarin oranges in the can. Moderately strong hops but definately not over done.
Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation. Great viscosity and very nice texture. Its similar to a Bass ale on the mouthfeel, but a little bit fuller and thicker.
Drinkability: Its very very powerful on the taste factor. This beer needs some food with it for sure if you are going to session this beer. Its got moderate abv so you can have a couple of these bad boys but its a diverse and complex beer that deserves to be savored and appreciated.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.
A: Nearly transparent pale yellow hue with a bubbly bleach white head that quickly fizzles down to a small cap, but leaves some lacing in its wake. Good for the style, I would say.
S: More hop-heavy than I was expecting. A nice floral aroma atop a platform of pilsner malt. Not much according to my nose. Short, sweet, and to the point!
T: Oooh, this is nice and hoppy, by pilsner standards. A lovely floral profile meddled together with some bready sweetness from the malt. Perfectly balanced from the start and through the middle, but the finish fades out with a hint of bitterness that's just really hitting the spot for me.
M: Pilsners aren't known for their ostentatious mouth presence, but Prima Pils clocks in towards the upper-end of the spectrum for the style. Solid medium body with the perfectly level of carbonation. Crisp, smooth, and refreshing. Drinks like a goddamn champ.
O: I'll admit that I'm a few steps away from a pilsner hater. They're just not my thing and I've accepted that I'm not going to like every beer style. I picked up Prima Pils for two reasons, honestly. First off, my pop is a huge fan of pilsners and lagers and this is one of the most praised (American) German pils around. And secondly, Victory is a local brewery that offers several beers that I adore, so I felt obligated to at least entertain their pilsner offering. I'm almost reluctant to admit that I love this beer. It's not one of my dearly beloved IPAs or stouts, but this beer, quite frankly, is effin' delicious. It's light, yet flavorful. It's top-tier, yet available. And given that summer is only midway through, you can bet this will be the beer of choice in my family BBQ coolers.
