Notes / Commercial Description:
Prima! It’s a German exclamation of joy. It’s a recognition of accomplishment. It’s what escaped from our lips the first time we sampled this mighty pilsner recipe. With heaps of whole flower European hops and fine German malts, we achieved the bracing herbal bite and smooth malt flavor that we sought. Prima… an exclamation of Victory! Prost!

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.

Prima Pils is everything I want for a summer Pilsener: not too hoppey, low carbonation, low BU, and very drinkable. Pounded back 2L at the Pirates game at PNC park last night.
