In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Victory Brewing Company Prima Pils

Aroma: Complex, strong hop profile with grapefruit, grass, pine, and citrus. Pils malt adds fullness. Some minerals. If aroma had a color, this would be dark green.

Flavor: Moderate bready malt sweetness followed by intense, resinous hop profile. Bitterness is high for the style but finishes clean and dry. Moderate malt sweetness with nice pils malt flavor. Needs more malt to balance. Crisp, with a carbonic bite and lingering astringency.

Overall: A nice, different, complex take on a pils that leans in the direction of India Pale Lager. Hops shine but aren’t overpowering. A bit unbalanced but interesting and very tasty. Like drinking pine needles. You may need to scrape your tongue! Hop lovers, rejoice!
