Victory Prima Pils

Victory brewing his put together a lot of really good beers. I have tried many of them, and sometimes I feel like I'm just chasing the dragon. With this one be another Golden Monkey? Can lightning strike twice? Let's find out together.

The pale, clear beer has a white head that leaves little to no lacing. Well, I guess there actually is some, but it's right at the edge of the rim. The aroma is quite heavy and floral with a solid grain backing to it. So, this appears to be exactly what a Pilsner is supposed to be.

The taste is crisp, and it's a little bitter. It definitely has the biscuit, and it's a little flaky. The floral hops are not particularly forward, at least in the sip. Maybe it has a little more grass to it then flowers in this brief experience. But, brief experiences are not what we're all about here.

Tip–in is crisp with a little bit of funk or skunk to it while carbonation is just a tingle sizzling on the outside. The middle gets very grainy with the flowers dulling it down just a little bit. It definitely has a bitter swell to it as the finish is an increase of bitterness, an increase of flowers, and the greens becoming a little more biscuity. Trail off is bitterness and a little bit of an echo of that skunk. As it warms, the skunk gets louder, so drink it cold.

Bottom Line: Not Prima, as the label would suggest, but certainly drinkable.

2.25/5
