I got this as part of an M&M 6pk from Woodman’s East in Madison, WI in summer 2012.

Pours a mostly clear goldenrod color with a bubbly white head. Scent is mild with hops, wheat, yeast, and hints of citrus. The taste is initially a sweet wheat tone that turns wet and slightly dry on the palette. Texture is smooth and refreshing as the beer is fairly complex for a pilsner. Leaves a slight chalky after taste. Not bad at all.

Prima Pils pours to a yellowish- straw color with a nice, white head of foam and an aroma that is one of light pepper, biscuits, grassiness, and lemons. The body of the beer is just slightly hazy and the beer leaves some decent lacing as you consume.

Tasting this beer proves even better than the appearance would lead you to believe. The flavor of this beer is a delight to the senses, offering tastes like biscuits, dough, bread, pale malt, citrus, and herbs. The spiciness in the finish is evident, but it doesn’t overwhelm and the taste is actually rather balanced overall with an aftertaste that returns to that of biscuits and dough.

Victory Brewing makes many fine products and Prima Pils is one of the finest. I find myself sipping, evaluating, and continuing to find more and more complex flavors. Everything from the initial sip through the aftertaste is memorable and quite remarkable. Try a Prima Pils for yourself, and see what you think.
