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.
