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.

This is my first review.
A - I poured this bottle into a Pilsner glass. Slight head, had a decent carbonation and a wonderful clear golden liquid. Head was thin but remained there for awhile.
S - The aroma was that of what you would look for in a good pilsner. Citrus, biscuit and a nice slight hop aroma.
T - The taste was balanced. Citrus, malt, biscuit and a piney hop taste right at the end.
M - Carbonation was right on point. Well balanced. The balance of malt and hops was really good.
O - Overall, I am very pleased with this beer. I don't tend to like pilsner as much as other styles but this one got my attention. I wouldn't turn one down. Thankfully they are offered year round and Victory is located in the state I live in. Definitely bringing more of this home and it might make an appearance at my wedding in September.
