This beer pours a clear pale yellow with minimal head and no lace. The aroma is of citrus and floral hops. The flavor is very bland with a hint of sour lemon. There is a very strong hop bitterness that lasts past the finish leaving an unpleasantly bitter aftertaste. It has a thin mouthfeel. Victory Prima Pils is a disappointing beer, way too bitter for the German pilsner style, more like an American IPA. Not recommended!

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...

DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!
First of all this is not a german pilsner, its more comparable to really awful American IPA. Really damn carbonated and looks like dehydrated piss with seltzer water. Taste was a watery carbonated bud light with hops. And the combination is the least satisfying. Definitely letting all the "Pros" that rated this beer so highly share this hillbilly beer to their families because I will definitely not be.

Pours a pale gold color with a white foamy 2 finger head with decent retention. There is a strong smell of overly bitter hops, perhaps too strong, and bread malt. Also smells somewhat like feet.
The taste is also bitter, overly bitter in my opinion. The malt tones down the hop bitterness a little. Light bodied, well carbonated. Fairly poor drinkability. Not my favorite Pilsener. I will avoid this in the future.

this was over hopped to my palate and had a strange aftertaste of bitterness that was not enjoyable. the normal bitter refreshing characteristics are gone and the overly bitter exotic tastes come through in a way you do not want to drink them. This made Urquell's taste seem amazingly more refreshing and enjoyable.

12 oz bottle poured into pilsener glass.
Pour yielded a thin white head that left decent lacing. Beer is an attractive sunflower gold with very active carbonation streaming from the bottom.
Aroma: standard German Lager smell of sour and grassiness.
Mouthfeel: for all the carbonation the mouthfeel is a little flat and lifeless.
Taste: hard for me to get past the astringent herb bitterness followed by a soapy aftertaste. Beer improved slightly as it warmed but it really seems like this a beer that is over-hopped, but not with Cascade or Centennial but rather with German Noble Hops. The bitterness overwhelms my taste buds completely.
Notes: I've had 5 bottles of this and has not grown on me. Stoudt's Pils seems immediately more enjoyable. Prima Pils is almost a drainpour for me.

Served in a pilsner glass
A - The body is pale yellow in color. The head is white in color and stands two and a half inches tall.
S - The aroma is grassy and grainy with a whiff of lemon from time to time.
T - Wow! The hops are more than I expected. I get a lot of bitterness with some slight metallic taste.
M - It feels thicker than a pilsner. I get a mild chalky feel on my tongue.
D - I'll just say I'm glad I didn't get a six pack.
