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.

MWMBeerguy (203) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Cloudy, no head and way too dark for a pilsner pouring an almost amber color. Fruity alcohol aroma, a bit sweet. Tastes like caramel malt. Not sure what kind of beer this actually would be...light maibock perhaps...but it's not a pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a great Pilsner. Golden and bright. Sharp bitterness at the end, but the hop character before is middling, grassy and without definition. Tried for the first time in 2010.

Pours an orange golden color with an aroma of grass,cereal, and hint of fruit. Decent body with grass and grain flavor with some sweet fruit at the ending. Decent for a pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: hops, honey, malt Taste: sweet malt is dominant, hoppy aftertaste. Some notes of honey and resin. Decent pilsener

Sampled at GABF 2016 with Paul, Andrew and Ellen. Pours a light golden body with thin white lacing. Nothing ridiculous, nothing offensive - just grainy and corny. Easy drinking.

12 oz bottle. Not the besr pilsner in the world but not the worst either. Try it and decide for yourself.

Pale, hazy gold. Nose of graham cracker pilsner malt and pine hops. Flavor is well-showcased pilsner malt with minty pine bitterness. Clean finish.

Draft at Milkboy. Hazy yellow amber with a frothy off-white head. Tastes (perhaps appropriately enough) as a mix of a Kolsch and Pilsner. Solid pour. Strong blonde toasted wheat flavors. Caramel Challah. Sweet bready notes. Orange peels. Banana slices. Medium-full body. Mild hops. Enjoyed it.

Nose is apple with light honey. Faint pils malt aroma. Clear pale yellow. Taste is lightly sulfuric with a fruity overtone. Hops are muted and beer is dominated by esters but is drinkable.

chinchill (5314) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2015
served in pint glass. A - clear golden color with modest white head of medium duration. T - Dominant flavor is a lightly toasted malt. Subtle hops. Baked grains. Very smooth, soft and tasty pilsner. Not complex or bold but, given that, has a particularly appealing and refreshing finish. Lacks the dryness and bite of a typical pilsner, but I ignored this while rating and enjoying this brew.

Pours a slightly cloudy dandelion yellow with a small bubbly white head that leaves a thin filmy layer. Smell is of light caramel maltiness, wheat, a subtle fruitiness, and sourdough bread. A very complex smell, which the taste follows through with splendidly. Wheat, light caramel malts, and a subtle apple sweetness balanced perfectly with a bitterness that hits after the swallow. That sourdough flavor also makes its presence known. This beer’s greatest success is in its follow through: the taste perfectly complements the aroma, and both are complex and well-balanced.
