A: Pale corn coloring, pristine clarity, with a light but rapid rise rise of carbonation. The head was soapy, scarce, quick to dissipate with no calling card on the glass.

S: Nose was very sweet, buttery grains, not much after that.

T: Flavor was sweet buttery grains, soft flowery hops, light spiciness and a touch of honey sweetness. Light orange citrusy-orange hints, some hay and lemon-flowery.

M: Medium bodied, somewhat crisp, but not tongue grabbing.

O: Overall easy flavor but leans way to much on the sweet and buttery side limiting drinkability. Not true to typical style. I would pass on this one per style.

Longtime favorite, first-time review -- surprising.

I've been enjoying the beers from this small brewery for a very long time. Got my hands on some fresh Klisch and been enjoying it.

A -- Clear, deep gold with a persistent, creamy off-white head.

S -- Mellow spicy hops balanced by yeasty, bready malt.

T -- Lightly sweet, bready malts up front with a good kick of spicy, lightly bitter noble hops in the finish and through the aftertaste. There's also a nice blend of light citrus and bready malts in the aftertaste that's very appetizing.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft and sort of creamy with a light-medium to medium body.

O -- This beer reminds me of a hopped-up Helles. It's not quite as light, dry and crisp as the typical German Pils, but it's also spicier and more bitter -- even a touch citric -- than a Munich Helles. The "crossover" makes for a delicious beer.

Looking at the ratings for this beer, I'd say that freshness is definitely the key to enjoying this Pilsner.
