COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bier is delicate and pale with less bitterness than a Pils and less sweetness than a Helles. A subtle fruitiness is the hallmark of this classic style from Köln. Along with Alt, this is one of the last ale holdouts in Germany

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2014
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.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2013
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.

Mebuzzard (5) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2013 does not count
This beer is very close to perfect for the style. Light golden pour, clean and clear. Head is white, rich and sticky. Aroma has a blend of sweet malt, florals and grassy hops. Tastes like a sharp lager with hints of floral, biscuit, white grape, sulfur, and light earthy spice. Very nice beer.
