A: The gold colored beer has bit of chill haze in it. There is a light dusting of sediment in the bottle so don't stir up the yeast with an overly enthusiastic pour. A persistant, rocky white head.

S: Pilsner malt and a spicy German hops. There is a slight sulfar aroma that quickly blows off and is common with Pilsners. There is a slight grainy note and a faint bit of diacetyl otherwise a nice clean lager aroma.

T: A moderately-low pils malt sweetness and moderate hops bitterness is smooth. The moderate hops flavor is spicy. The aftertaste is a balance of hops and malt flavors past the dry finish. The balance is somewhat bitter. No fruity esters.

M: medium bodied with the diacetyl adding the perception of some weight with a slight slickness. The carbonation is moderate.

O: An enjoyable Bohemian Pilsner that is very food friendly. It's a moderately hoppy beer, not IPA hop-head pleasing but good no the less.

12oz bottle into pint, review from notes

Look is a slightly cloudy orange-yellow with a small head. Smell is bready with a bit of coriander and yeast. Taste follows as white bread and grain fade to spices and faint lemony hops. Very drinkable, slight stringency at the end.

Very drinkable pils, but expensive and not overly impressive.

With this offering from Lakefront Brewery, the Klisch, I had a 12oz bottle poured into a pint/nonic glass.

A - it has a cloudiness to it, giving the beer a golden-blonde appearance. It only produced about 1/4 inch of foamy white head at the top.

S - very light hops, slight citrus note as well.

T - the malt seems to be the main note on the palate. There is no noticeable amount of hops, the beer is crisp, clean, and slightly sweet on the finish.

M - medium to full-bodied, it is very smooth. It has perhaps a bit of chewiness to it due to the slight cloudiness.

O - I did enjoy the Klisch from Lakefront. It is an easy drinking beer, not overly complex and straight forward. A very nice refreshing beer to drink on a hot summer day.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a very modest head; no lacing to speak of

Smell: Very bready, with a lightly sweet edge

Taste: Bready, up front and in the middle, until a grassy hop character arrives; surprisingly, the hops fade, after the swallow, and the malts take it up a notch, adding a graham cracker sweetness

Mouthfeel: Light body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Rather disappointing - a bit too sweet, the hops add very little and the mouthfeel is just all wrong for the style
