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.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 sparkling clear pale gold with a white head and decent retention. hop aroma has the characteristic overt cheese must, baloney / fatty acids, and herbaceousness of overuse of noble hops with a small amount of acedylhyde / green apple aroma present, evident in the flavor as well, suggesting the beer may be too young. at times the nose even seems salty, and the mineral / calcium / sulfur content too high. by the end of the glass the strong vegetable and herbal character combined with egg shell sulfur notes seems directionless and random. the hop rate of German pilsner is typically lower than Bohemian style, to bring the beer into balance with the higher attenuation / lower sweetness. the hop rate here seems more appropriate for Czech pilsner, but the malt is far too dry to support it, and I have to guess the intent is to satisfy the hop desires of American palates. the result is bracing acidity and a coarse texture. add in the mild sulfuric acids and dried fruit esters and it comes across as a bit too unclean for pilsner; the acids from the yeast seem to accentuate the hop flavors much more than the malt, which is hidden behind the brash acidity and astringency of the bittering hops.

crossovert (7878) - Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Growler. Deep gold pour beautiful white head. Smell is slightly alcoholic, sweet biscuit, noble hops. Flavor is hop forward but with a big bready malt prescence. Surely one of the finest US examples.
