Victory first introduced Prima Pils with 2 other beers in NC, sampled at Tylers on the first day it was available. Pours a very vibrant yellow color with a clear complexion, good head retention and limited lacing. The smell was sweet with citrus notes and some herbal scenes as well.
The taste was crisp, dry and hop. No skunk flavors and very easy to drink. A great malt backing with a good mix of malt that has more of an American style feel. The hop is very floral and crisp. The malt is the stronger of the two flavors. I think that what this beer has going for it is that it is super easy to drink, the flavor is smooth with out the European skunk and its easy to get.
Not only did I sample this as soon as I could (per NC, oh and Pop the Cap was still in effect), I picked some up for later. A great example of a pilsner, or at least a pilsner on vacation in America.

A - 5. Just a beautiful crystal clear straw with many bubbles. 1/2" large bubble head from easy-modedate pour.
S - its awesome. I haven't tasted it yet at this point in filling out the review but the exceptional appearance and smell compelled me to review this beer fully, so here goes...
T - dry. Very hoppy for a pilsner. More bitter than sweet per style. Not bad, but unfortunately very let down. Looks and smells great but only an average beer, probably below average and wrongfully classified pilsner.
M - nothing great, nothing poor. 3.75, its pretty drinkable.
O - 3.5. Points docked for tasting far more an IPA than a pilsner.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.
