Poured into my pint glass the beer is clear golden yellow. The head is a thick bone white and raises at least two inches. After a little rest the head leave a smattering of white lace all around my glass. The aroma is not real powerful. What I can pick out is sweet grain and a slight sweet bready maltiness. Smells like any typical pilsner. I guess that's a compliment. The flavor is sharp hop bite at first that slowly moves to a pleasant bready malt. A citrus bite with salty cracker tones wash over the taste buds with every gulp. A blue print of what pilsners taste like to me. Light to medium body with loads of carbonation. Sort of weak in the mouth. Overall a nice representaion of a pilsner. This isn't my favorite style but, it would please the pilsner lover for sure.

Pours a light yellow color with a white head that fades to nothing. Has some haze from either suspended sediment or yeast. Aroma is classic pilsner - light bready malt with faint hops. Lighted bodied, this beer also tastes true to style with bready malt, good carbonation, light hop aftertaste and a dry finish. Quite drinkable.

22 oz bomber poured into a Pilsner glass. Sept. Wk4 08 marked on the label.

A - Hazy yellow-golden color with a strong cloud white and pillowy head. Great retention and strong, clumpy lacing.

S - Strong yet graceful noble hop aromas that are nothing more than citrusy with a backbone of light malts and a mineral water hint.

T - The Titanic starts off with a light floral hop flavor of citrus, changes lightly malty with a mineral water flavor then finishes strong with a light alcohol warming and crisp, clean hops.

M - Light bodied and smooth, the bubbles are just effervescent enough on the tongue. A tad bitter and dry on the finish.

D - While I'm not the biggest fan of pilsner beers, this one is a drinkable beer for sure. Slightly bitter but flavorful and delicious.

A- Bright gold green tinge. 1 1/2 finger head.

S- Biscuity malt aromas with a touch of noble hops.

T- Grainy malt sweetness up front through the middle. Some hop flavor surfaces at about mid point, but not quite enough to take centerstage. The finish is slightly hop bias and pleasantly semi-dry.

M- Smooth, but a little heavy for a pilsner.

D- Not bad, I'll finish it.

In my opinion this tasted more like a Helles than a Pils. The malt is a little on the grainy side and the hopping was lacking. However being a very hard style to nail, it was still a decent beer nevertheless. Props on brewing a beer to support the museum!

'Bottled by Lakefront Brewery as a salute to Titanic: the Artifact Exhibition'

22 oz bottle purchased at Discount Liquor. Bottling date 3rd wk of Sept. Poured into a 0.4 L stein.

Pours with a large tight foamy white head, well carbonated. Clear bright golden yellow color. Aroma is light, sweet, slightly salty/mineraly. Starts sweet, lightly malty, becoming lemony and mildly bitter in the finish. Light body. Alcohol moderately noticeable.

Not sure if this is a rebottling of the Klisch.
