Prima Pils, a German-style Pilsener by Victory Brewing Company

Share This Review

Prima Pils is a German-style Pilsener brewed by Victory Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a can.


Pours a crystal clear gold with nearly an inch-thick head of white foam that dissolves quickly; abundant lace sticks to the glass.


The aroma is faint with a scent of grain.


The palate leads off with a taste of biscuit before being blasted with herbal and spicy hops. The hoppy bitterness lingers through the finish.


Its feel is light, crisp, and effervescent. Finishes dryly.


The Prima Pils is exactly what you’d expect from the style. Perhaps a bit hoppier than the norm but mighty tasty just the same. Showcases just about everything you’d like to have in a Pilsener.

About the German Pilsener

The German Pilsener is an adaptation of the Czech Pilsener that was first brewed in the 1870s. Its color ranges from straw to pale gold and should exhibit very good clarity. The aroma and palate should have a light grainy-sweet malt scent of cracker and honey. Should have pronounced noble hop notes that can be floral, spicy, and herbal. The palate should have moderate to high bitterness that lingers into the finish. Its feel should be medium-light with moderate to high carbonation. Its alcohol strength straddles sessionable and moderate. Comparatively, the German Pils is lighter in body and color, drier, crisper with higher attenuation and carbonation than the Czech style. It’s hoppier with more malt flavor higher bitterness than International Pale Lagers. The Pils has more hop flavor and bitterness than the Munich Helles.
