Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a northern German staple and our flagship beer. This is a crisp, pale and dry interpretation of the style. Well hopped with noble German varieties and a special strain of yeast from a German monastery. Prost Pils is pale gold in color and capped with a thick, brilliantly white, dense collar of foam. With the first sip spicy hop flavors come to the forefront. As the hop begins to fade, the wonderfully soft imported pilsner malt is revealed. The finish, with its herbal, pleasantly lingering hop note balanced by a rich malt counterpoint, demands another taste. (ABV 4.6% 37 IBU'S)

by far the least impressive of the prost brews ive had. on tap at bike café on 17th and Lafayette, this pours a mostly clear washed out yellow color with soda fizz and an inch of slowly receding soft white foam. the nose is more hoppy than most beers from this genre, but I think the yeast ratio is way overdone. I don't get much of the german malt profile im looking for here, and it all seems to be washed out by an ale yeast that is a little out of place. the taste confirms what the nose accuses, yeasty and hoppy, not how a true pils should be, but has shades of the wonderful victory prima pils going on, with the quick hopped up finish. this one is really lacking the wow factor and the authenticity of the other prost beers, but its plenty drinkable. light in body, almost watery except for the heavy carbonation. its still too thin for me, and the aftertaste is a mix of standard hops and past their prime gains. it seems to me like if you can make an epic dunkel, hefe, and big ass bock, that you should be able to handle a basic pilsener, but this is not the case here. prost has nailed so many of their beers, but this one falls far short of the mark they've set.

Purchased a growler at Coaltrain Wine and Liquor in Colorado Springs.

The pour produced a solid yellow body with a thin but thick and creamy white head; lots of sticky lacing remained on my pint glass. Light malt aroma leaning towards caramel with a faint ester scent; faintly biscuit-like. There is a strong malt flavor with a strong hop bitterness. Almost medium-bodied with a biting hop bitterness on the tongue; crisp and dry.

Prost seems to have nailed this classic style. The beer exhibits a smooth malt presence coupled with a nicely complimentary hop bitterness and feel.

Poured on tap at Prost in Denver into a pilsner glass.

A real looker. Clumpy white and bright head, an extreme amount of aggressive lacing. Body color is a hair darker than most pilsners, a real gorgeous dark golden faint bronze. Lively carbonation a real impressive looking brew.

Ever get that first visit brewery smell? That rank yeast and spent grain smell? It smells exactly like that. Nothing more i find this welcoming but really shocking though.

Taste is a crisp huge thick pilsner malt rush with a wonderful hop popping lime juice finish. Giant baked bread and rolling dough. Manages also a real clean and dense with crisp finish.

Overall this is spectacular for a domestic pilsner.

On tap at Falling Rock and I've had it at Prost as well. Yellow color and a surprising lace in the glass. Do pilseners usually have good lacing? Smells like minerals and lager yeast. Flavor is more minerals, dirty in a good way. Overall, very easy to drink but nowhere near my favorite pils. Maybe I just don't know enough about German styles yet.
