This is by a long shot one of the best beers made in america. I know that is a huge statement but this is what beer is supposed to be. It isn't exactly a traditonal pilsner but not far from either. The alcohol content and hoppiness is a bit high but otherwise who cares...It's just damn good. Very well balanced but hoppy enough to please any hop head. Try it, you will not be dissappointed. Way to go Victory! This is my session beer.

Prima Pils pours perfect golden light yellow with a great off-white head. Plenty of hops thoughout the nose and with each sip. Super dry and crisp with plenty of carbonation and hop zip. It is such a great thirst quencher, a great apertif, a great beer...period! Jever was the inspriation for this beer and it shows. Jever would be proud.

The best Pilsner that I have ever had! The hops are perfect and finished very dry.
