This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Lakefront Brewery's Klisch Pilsner.
So looking at this picture, I am sure that you must be wondering to yourself, what is a Klisch? It really sounds to me like a new product from Ikea, but it is not a Grunka, it's a style of beer which a small town Milwaukee based brewery assigned to a delicious Pilsner. [The Lakefront website reveals that the beer was actually named after the brewery's founders].
The Klisch Pilsner pours a golden orange, considerably richer than you would normally see with a Pilsner. There was a small amount of foam, not as much as you would see in a macrolager, but a decent amount of suds on the rim nonetheless.
There is a little bit of hops in the front of the sip of the brew, which was a pleasant surprise. But the hops quickly faded into the background and the malts began to dominate each successive sip.I know, not surprising and essentially what is to be expected with a Pilsner, but it was nice to have the hops around for a short visit.
This brew would go well with many lighter dishes and would be the perfect accompaniment of pizza, salads or sweet chicken entrees.
Lakefront Brewery Klisch Pilsner is under the kosher supervision of the Star-K (there is even a Star-K on the label). For the experts' take on the Klisch, please click here http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/741/2221.
As always, please remember to drink responsibly and to never waste good beer unless there is no designated driver.
