BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

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)

Appearance: Pours clear and golden colored; the head rises to an inch and floats above the liquid; squiggles of lacing

Smell: Bready, with a hint of lemon and a nice grassy tone

Taste: Bready, with a lemon cream sweetness that builds through the middle; after the swallow, the grassy bitterness balances out the sweeter tones

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: One of the best domestic-brewed German pils I have encountered

Light gold pour with a finger of foam that leaves lacing behind.

Noble hops crispness in the smell with some bready malt notes.

Unmistakable noble hops zing with light bread that personifies the style to a T.

As German a Pils as one can get in the US, imho.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a nice thick/foamy/creamy one-finger white head, which leaves some minimal sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice malty, slight yeast note, some hops, lemony. The taste is very nice malty, kinda yeasty, very nice sweetness, with some hop notes, lemony. Medium body. Overall, this is hitting the spot, very nice thirst quencher. This one is true to style.

Brilliant gold, lots of rising carb trails, a two finger head of foam with long lasting surface coverage.

Aroma is crisp and grassy, with an interesting faint note of lemon sorbet. Taste is grassy and crackery, plenty of noble hop bitterness. Dry clean bitter finish. Body is light with a crisp feel, quenching and well balanced, slightly hoppier than most, maybe on similar ground with Jever Pils.

Overall this is a great German Pils, refreshing and true to style.

Poured from a 12oz bottle; into a pub glass.
Apperance - crystal clear, plenty of bubbles that create a medium to thick foamy white head. Lacing is strong.
Smell - black pepper and cracker malts, yeast and perhaps a touch of honey.
Taste - the German hops stand out in this pils, making it far better than most!
Feel - light, mildly bitter and an easy drinker.
Overall - not my style, but this is far better than most.

I was hoping for a great Pils, but this is not one of them. It pours a cloudy, dark golden colour with a white head. I have noticed that some of the bottles pour clear, but others pour very murky at the same temperature. The aroma is clean with no perceptible hop aroma. The taste is quite thin, very little malt character followed by a fairly aggresive bitterness. Despite their claims to be authentic German, this tastes to me like they are using cheap Canadian grown malt instead of continental malt. I am pleased by the fact that this Pils is not dry hopped like most of the other American craft Pilseners, but Prost Pils leaves a lot to be desired particularly because of its lack of flavour layers: you get an astrigency and a bitterness and that´s it. Even mass produced German Pilseners like Bitburger and Radeberger give you a lot more complexity than you will find here.
