COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

joergen (20714) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle, thanks to Ambassador for sharing. Cloudy yellow coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of malts with notes of hops and citrus. Fruity flavour of malts, hat, grass and hops. Hoppy finish.

Oakes (12539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2008
Dull colour, lacking both carbonation and head. Smells kind of catty, a little bit minerally, and fairly herbal. Drinks light - not really enough bitterness for a pilsner. Still a bit catty in the hop character. The malts aren’t bad, but they’re not bright either. A bit disappointing.

(12oz bottle, bottled first week, November) Small white head atop clear straw body. Aroma is mild, medium sweet,some herbal/floral, grain. Taste is medium sweet, herbal, cereal, some floral, light metallic. Some bitterness, to be certain, but very mild. Light-medium body.

bhensonb (11047) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Firm aroma of light malt backed by noble hop. Much better than a typical American macro. Orange tinged golden color with a bubbly white head. Near medium body with mild, almost creamy, carbonation. The flavor is light malt, and near citrus hop. Of course it’s not citrus, but there is so much hop for this style. The finish is neither sweet nor dry, and the hop builds a little. Very clean. I agree, the accent is on the hops. All the comment on strength is compared to a typical American macro, not a crafted IPA. Anyway I was pleasantly surprised by this lager.

Bottle... Hazy yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Lactic, fruity aroma. The flavor is malty-sweet and lightly tart with a spicy hop bite. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp and tangy. A shout goes out to headbanger for sending the bottle my way!
