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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Label says enjoy by 10/08/14.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head which fades into a thin patch.

Smell: A bready and spicy malt forward aroma with hints of biscuit and earthy hops. Pale malt with upfront hints of biscuit, grains, straw, cracker, and yeast. Solid hints of spicy and earthy Noble hops. Subtle fruit hints of apple and lemon zest. A very solid Pilsener aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely crisp, bready, and spicy malt driven taste with notes of biscuit and spicy hops. Pale malt with bready notes of biscuit, straw, grains, cracker, and yeast. Good presence of Euro Noble hops with some spicy and earthy notes. Nice undertones of fruit with some notes of apple and lemon zest. A pretty good Pils taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Crisp, creamy, and very smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A very solid take on the German Pilsener style. Good biscuit malt taste with some nice spicy hop and fruit notes.

Poured into a pint glass, hazy straw yellow with one finger of light head that faded to a thick fluffy quarter inch of tight tiny bubbles. Nice retention and lacing. Aroma is grassy and just a bit of herbal spiciness from the noble hops. Also got some bready biscuity notes as well. Taste is identical to the smell, grassy notes with light malt notes, very crisp finish, very true to style. The mouthfeel is pretty light, nicely carbonated. Overall this is a very nice representation of the style- makes me feel like I'm back in Germany again.

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.
