In the words of our President and founding father, Russ Klisch, "Klisch Pilsner is a meat and potatoes beer," meaning that though there are no darker specialty grains used to influence the color or texture of this beer, it is nonetheless a full-bodied satisfying all-malt brew. The recipe is simple, but how it is put together is what gives this beer its complexity. The deep golden color and malty flavor come from an ample amount of domestic malted barley and imported hops. The addition of Saaz hops added at the end of a two-hour boil gives the beer a wonderful balance with the accent on the hops.

Small head with a "light beer" color to it. I wasn't expecting this to be terribly great as I typically prefer a darker beer. However, I was plesenly surprised by the full-bodied flavor of this pilsener.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Amber color with almost no head. Initial impression is a oily mouthfeel, but not a terrible pleasant one. A buttery taste is left in my mouth that is rather pleasing. It has a nice balance in the flavor, its has a decent bite, but doesnt shoot the rest of the beer in the foot by doing so.

This bottled brew has a place on the label for the "Bottled During" date but it was not filled in. It poured a small head of white colored finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated dark yellow colored transparent body and a fair lace. The aroma mild and doughy. The mouthfeel is smooth with a mild tingle and the flavor is malty with a mild fruity apricot like finish.

3fourths (8291) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Clear light yellow under a large white foamy head which clings to the glass forever. Aroma is a pleasent grassy/hay/earth character. Taste is light lemon grass and some German wheat characteristics. A nice representation of the style.

pours a rippling scandanavian blonde, head flashing white as a shark's tooth. modest aroma--as if coming from afar-- of honey dissoved in white wine, with a match-stick dry piney effect, plus perhaps daisys and butter cookies; nice, tho the aromatic saaz hops are understated. it's a lovely bite of refreshment, cookie malts and perfumy white grape hops are in splendid balance, tho, typical of the style, in very small measures. moderate carbonation and a gentle wobble from slight sweetness to slight bitterness. good for washing down a sandwich.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 Pleasant sweet grainy aroma. A bit of banana, maybe some ginger? Body is orange/yellow with an average head. Taste is sweet with a light bitter finish. Thought I got some ginger in the taste as well. Sweet grains with a touch of caramel and decent pilsener hops. Overall, flavor is very light, but there is nothing terribly wrong with it. Nice session ale, well rounded.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Started off with a pleasingly light hop aroma. Malts were thicker than expected - bready, mildly sweet. The finish was nice and crisp, peppered with hops. Overall, the flavors need kicked up - it's all just too mild.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Sept. bottling: This had a touch of sourness to it, like it had been sitting in the sun for too long. Otherwise, there was a thin white head on top of a yellow body. I was pleased to see it wasn't overly carbonated. Some very light Saaz hops, though mostly lost in the mild sourness. Not all that crisp or dry. Rather odd, frankly.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Dry, hoppy aroma. A sparse bubbly head sits on top of a light golden body. Medium-thick mouthfeel, more than what I was expecting (which is good). Taste-wise, this beer strikes me as being stale (even though it was bottled in November). There's a bitter cardboardy aftertaste that dominates the flavor. At the front there's a gentle sweetness but then the bitterness sets in. Perhaps I'm an idiot, but I didn't really enjoy this one.

Nice clean, mild hoppy aroma. Slightly spicy. This beer has a classic nose of a great Pils. Nice deep golden color. Light carbonation with a big frothy white head. Taste profile is well balanced between the sturdy malt and the crisp hops. Definitely Saaz in the nose and taste. Finish is clean and balanced with a slight nod to the hops. THis is a well crafted beer, better suited for warmer weather.
