Postmortem Brew Review
Clear golden yellow color.
Pine hop scent; unusual for a pilsener.
One finger head disappears over a short period of time.
Citrus hops taste with good amount of carbonation.
Dry and light bodied.  Refreshing taste.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
Interesting situation here.  First Victory the Reaper has laid his bones on. I asked my local beer-tender for something light to start.  He also happens to have an inside track that I like my beers on the hoppy side, so he suggested this one.  One sip and I knew it was gonna be good.

Prima Pils is clear and yellow just like a pilsener should appear.  Nothing new about that.   But on the nose, there is a fair amount more hops than you'd expect from your everyday pils.  Even those that are "triple hopped".  The hops aromas in here rivals those of a pale ale.

Then there is the nibbling of hops on your palate as you sip.  So there you are!  More hops than expected and more refreshing than pale ales.  And, Prima Pils achieves refreshment as only a pilsener can.  It's amazing. It's different.  It's from Victory and I'll be back for more!
