New to the state of Indiana is beers from Victory Brewing Company based in Downingtown, PA. I have had a few of their offerings and have yet to be disappointed. So it is with great pleasure that I can review the Prima Pils and gleefully say I didn't have to trade to get this, it is now here in Naptown!
One of my bigger complaints with the craft beer industry is the lack of pilsners. It's almost like the industry as a whole has seen what the big 3 have done to the style and they are content to let them get away with it. Well Victory has decided to fight back with their Prima Pils which is an outstanding pilsner that can stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the finest from Europe. Prima Pils pours a bright golden yellow and in the right lighting, it almost gets a neon glow to it. It is really something to behold, with a gorgeous bright white and thick head gracing the top. Eventually that head will slow drop out but continue to leave lacing all the way down the glass.
The first thing you notice when you raise the glass up to your face is the hops aroma. Very distinct noble hops layered on top of fresh cut grass.. oh so inviting! Taking a sip and you realize that the flavor lives up to the aroma. The beer has a clean and crisp hop bite that really demands that you to take another swallow. The hops are somewhat grassy in nature and leave the beer with an outstanding balance between bitterness and malt. On the tail end, that bitterness lingers lightly on the back of the tongue to remind you that you still have more in the glass.
This is an absolutely world class pilsner beer and would compare well with brands from Europe like Stiegl, Warsteiner, Radeberger, etc. So for those of you out there that have shied away from that pale pilsner style, either because of what the macros have done to the style or because many times imports have that 3 months in a cargo hold taste, give this one a try. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
