More like manneken piss, am I right? Smells and looks like it. The taste is watery euro lager masquerading as a pilsner with some grass and herbal notes. Tourist beer

A: Golden filtered with a copper tinge, little carbonation and 2 fingers of white fluffy head.

S: Sour dough notes, the funk of the Brussels region seems to be coming through. Reminds me of the smells of the Cantillon Brewery.

T: Sour dough, a hint of lambic sourness, and the funk reminding me of the Cantillon Brewery is coming through. Surprising for a pils! Still light and lager but some unique qualities.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp fine finish.

O: Drank on tap at Wine Connection in Chiang Mai. Really enjoyed this one with one of their gourmet pizzas.

On-tap served in a Manneken Pils glass at Wine Connection, Bangkok.

The appearance showcase looks like other pilsners with clear golden color and thick white foamy head that well retains itself before gradually collapse into decent sudsy layer atop along with some lacing, medium visible carbonation. Rather mild and clean in a nose, malt mainly predominates together with some hint of hop. The taste is biscuity and sweet deriving from malt. Hop is also there with a subtle touch of bitterness. Medium body with good carbonation well enough to smoothen up and refresh the palate, finish is clean and rather dry.

Another average Pilsener and I would say “Yes, it’s okay”.

On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver the beer is served in a Manneken pils glass. Arrives a relatively clear golden color with a nice 1.5 finger white head, good retention and lacing. Very approachable. The nose is a bit mild but pleasant, blend of pilsner malt, floral earthen hops, and toasted barely. The flavor is delicate and nice with the same pilsner malt blended with the mild earthy hops and toast. Very creamy in nature. The last lingers a while on the tongue. The malt doesn't dominate the palette as is so common with other pilsners. Finishes creamy and clean. Well carbonated and smooth. Overall, this was a treat. Not mind blowing, but good. A great spring beer.

The brew pours a clear golden hue with decent carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head and little lacing,the smell is pretty average and worse than its look with aromas of feint herbal,grassy hops and a some barley,the mouthfeel is light bodied and nicely carbonated but the tastes are really not there to be honest and the subtle flavours that you do get of barley,grains and herbal grassy hops dont really do it for me and overall its one of those drops that you can drink more than one of if your not buying it or theres only macro to choose from its just like an average looking chick with an average body that doesnt turn heads and i will not revisit.
