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 (8593) - 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.

onceblind (5410) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
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.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Tap at Prost - served in the appropriate glass - clear gold - frothy, well-sustained head - nose is clean malt sweetness, grassy hops, moderate mineral, but also an off-putting note of sulfur - light body, medium frothy texture - light peppery bitterness up front, followed by a medium sweet, honeyed maltiness - finish is medium crisp, moderately bitter, light mineral - decent brew but for the off note in the nose and slightly higher than expected sweetness as it warms.
