3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
January 29th, 2013 - I actually visited Prost in December, but my notes are falling awkwardly behind, so I’m reporting from the far future on records preserved in the past of an event even further in the past. But Prost is well worth the archival efforts. I begin with their Pils, a staple and, I hope, one of the core brews in a brewery that swears allegiance to lagers. The aroma presents a little banana up front, though not much else, and the flavor begins with a rocky, mineral water taste, which on second inspection all appears in the scent. A corn-based sweetness, like Corn Pops cereal, juts forth in the flavor, surfing on a medium body. I’m not sure whether I enjoy this taste, but it [asses, leaving a long aftertaste of deep honey sweetness lingering on the tongue. Though pilseners are generally not my favorite style, this is a demonstrably rich version, with an engaging flavor, especially in the aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. The visuals are spot-on. The aroma is spot-on. Biscuity, but tightly Teutonic hoppiness, spot on. I’m in Germany, next to I-25. (#5638, 8/24/2014)

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Enjoy by date 09/09/14. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a clear yellow (SRM 3)body.....nose is Pils malts, with cereal, light hop spice, no esters.....taste is very slightly sweet to start, with hints of light colored fruits (pear, apple), leading to a soft herbal hop bitterness, no esters....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, mild astringency, carbonation adds a moderate acid finish. This is a fairly typical example of the style. It is clean, crisp, well carbonated, moderately bitter with noble varieties, and thoroughly refreshing. BJCP 7/3/15/5/7

Tap at brewpub
pours bright yellow with a nice lacing and soapy white head. Nose is spicy with some grassy notes and lite grains. Flavors are very grainy lite spice and grass. Not as hoppy as I woukd like but still very solid. Long grainy finish with lite dryness. Perfect for the style.
