12oz bottle procured for me in Minneapolis by rudge75. Thank you so much Dave! Poured into a pilsner glass.
Lovely pour, 1 inch of head recedes slowly. Carbonation is quite mild but keeps a little bit of lace. Typical pilsner colour, light straw but not too pale, unfiltered and slightly hazey. Subdued nose, but delicious all the same. Light and flowery noble hop aromas, slightly earthy. Nutty malt sweetness as well, and a bit of apple blossom.
Taste is, wow....unexpected. This is extremely tasty! The hop character is so pronounced and unique and unlike anything I've had. Hop character is decidedly herbal and a little piney too, with a bit of floral grassiness. Crisp crackery malt character as well, slight nuttiness in the background. Body is light and finishes welcomingly dry. This an exceptional example of a pilsener, and drinkable all night long. It's a beautiful day outside, and I wish I had more than one, I'll tell you that.

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.
