3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery with willyP and wanderkate. Traditional kolsch style glass. Light golden color with a half finger of white froth. Definitely refreshing and light. Grainy with minimal hop presence. Slight metallic note with some sweetness. Not a lot of substance but that’s not the point of this style. Drinkable and easy.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of slight corn, grain into a bit of biscuit, touch of yeast into a bit of bread, some slight cereal, hints of grassy hops. Taste was a mix of grass, herbal, floral notes into a bit of yeast, slight bisuit and bread, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bue en fût sur place): Un brin fromagé avec une légère croûte florale. Plus près d’une pils czech que d’une kolsch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear light gold under a thin sticky foamy head. The aroma is like a biscuity macro lager but with a cheeky fruit ester. The fruit ester plays a large role on the flavor with a hefty blonde grain and light golden toast flavor as well. Quaffable and grainy and fruity. Very delicate and nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Aroma of detergent, calcium, egg shells / sulfur, mild lemon, faint cracker / pale malt. Medium body, lightly sweet, low bitterness, medium acidity. Chalk, silt, corn syrup, mild DMS concrete mix minerality. Creamy carbonation but husky malt. Simple pale malt finish. Lacks the ester profile of Kolsch and seems closest to Helles / pale lager. Off-notes are milder than I’ve found in Prost’s early batches. Pretty basic overall.

On tap at The Kitchen. Pour is clear golden with a big frothy white head. Corn, sweet biscuit, grassy, minerally, slightly chalky, honey, and grainy aroma. Taste is sweet dough, grass, biscuit, cereal, somewhat earthy, minerals, and corn with a sweet finish. Light body with high carbonation. Clean and easy drinking. Decent stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at Highland Tavern. I am not a kolsch fan at all, but let me say this is the best I have had. It’s immaculately clean and perfectly balanced. The aroma is light, doughy and crackery with faint grassy notes. Very clean body, light bready notes and corn husks. The finish is quick. This paired very well with the tater tots. It’s a lot of work to make this style with not a lot of reward, but Prost seems to do it better than most.
