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)

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Pilsner glass.

Appearance: Clear gold with good sized, stark white head.

Smell: Apple. straw and pepper. Fairly mild.

Taste: Strong semi-sweet apple core, with additional elements of straw, pepper and floral notes. Fairly spicy and bitter finish.

Feel: High carbonation, light body, very dry finish.

Overall: Very straightforward Northern German Pilsner, but fresh and well executed.

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.

Reivewed at Big Meadow Campground, Shenandoah National Park, VA. Full notes taken.

A- Fairly clear golden bodied pour from the 12oz bottle to a goblet. White head builds to a finger with fair retention. Eventually just a small ring and one pillow remains with spotty lacing.

S- Noble hops bring spicy, herbal and grassy aromas with a slight bit of lemon zest from those or the yeast. The bugs also bring some lagery notes of bread and pale fruits.

T- Spicy, grassy and herbal hops responsible for most of what is presented with some straw feel as well. The yeast is mostly clean allowing the hops to really stand out but some spice and fruits come to mind. Slight cracked grainy Pils malt.

MF- Crisp and semi light bodied with a fizzy and frothy texture. The bubbles are at a high level and add some tinge to the palate which compliments the hops. Light to medium bitters linger in the finish.

Clean enough yeast to allow the hops to shine yet you can still tell its a lager and a German style. Crisp delivery of fresh Noble hop flavors.

What a head; soft, foamy, thick and luscious. Good clarity, active bubbly appearance. Smell is minerally, herbal/oily hops, mouth-watering toasted malt aroma. Wow, the taste! Crisp and flavorful. Biscuity malts up front, clean finish. Nice mild hoppiness, longer than expected linger on the palette. Exquisite hops flavor; mild, but flavorful. The water taste is great, really comes out in the glass. Mouthfeel is quite nice, bubbly and lively but not rough at all.

My first beer from Prost and so far, I am very impressed. Excellent representation of true German pils.
