12fl oz bottle poured into my pint glass due to not having a pilsner glass
The appearance was that of a pale clear looking color as you could get with a one inch white head. Average head retention with minimal lacing.
The aroma was of noble hops with the likes of Saaz? Along with this I get pale malt and earthy herbal smell. Some sort of grains also play a role which I can not just put my finger on.
The taste was that of slight sweet upfront with hops. Alongside some pale malt and slight caramel maybe?
Mouthfeel is light bodied and very crisp and refreshing.
Overall this is a great example of a pilsener and this beer actually taste quite like Sam Adams-Noble Pils, except this being slightly better.
Sorry for the lame review as I have the hardest time reviewing Pilseners due to there subtle but great flavors.

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.
