Just going to go ahead and say right now that this one great pilsner.
It pours with a beautiful 2-finger white head, which is dense and leaves lacing the whole way down. And the body is an attractive light straw color, with good clarity and plenty of apparent carbonation.
The smell is of fresh-cut grass and spicy, herbal hops over a present, but mostly in the background, bready-biscuity malt. Just a hint of sweetness creeps in, in an otherwise, crisp, hoppy aroma.
The taste is hop forward, but manages to stay classy. Crisp and refreshing, with dryness from generous amounts of herbal hops. The beer avoids any metallic taste, and it finishes clean and spicy. Awesome prickly mouthfeel, with just the right amount of chewiness.
Prima Pils lives up to the hype. Stock up, and enjoy it often.

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.
