AMERICAN CRAFT PILSNER

Victory Prima Pils

Pilsners are pale hoppy lagers and the name often adorns bland generic junk beers. But, pale lagers are the world's dominant style for good reason. Long, slow brewing at cold temperatures creates a crisp and refreshing flavor ideal for taking the sizzle out of a hot summer day. When quality ingredients are used, pilsner can truly be the king of beers. A case in point is this American craft brew from Victory. Richer than a classic German pilsner, "Prima Pils" has a biscuity malt core and heaping helpings of noble whole-leaf hops to add an herbal scent and quenching bitterness. A far cry from the wifty macro-brews that claim to be pilsners, this is a beer of substance that will please ale and lager lovers alike. Try it with fish tacos or hot dogs and sauerkraut.

Price: $1.70 (12 oz.)
