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)

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.

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.

This beer was enjoyed from a liter-sized mug on site at Prost. The beer a large cap of white foam floating above darkish yellow liquid. The aroma has splendid grassy hops along with a clean malt bill. The beer was served at what seemed to be the correct temperature--i.e. not ice cold. The flavor profile has a large emphasis on hops--grassy herbal earthy and bitter. An appropriate blend for a pilsner and satisfyingly bitter. If anything I would have liked to see a little more malt present in but overall an enjoyable beer.
