Notes: Bibo (pronounced bee-bo) is a crisp, dry, and classic pilsner. A distinct continental hop flavor and aroma creates a well-balanced and tastefully crafted brew.

Bibo was named after Albert Einstein’s parrot, which he received as a gift for his 75th birthday. Bibo also means “I drink” in Latin.

Had this Beer at a Beer Garden in Macon Ga. Right from a can with no glass so I cant comment on the Look. The aroma was nearly non existent. As far as Taste goes, Definitely on par with the import Pilsners. Upfront nice sweet malt. Gentle Hop character that doesn't overwhelm. Well balanced. The feel really helps set this beer apart from domestic. Soft, velvety texture. Low carbonation. Overall Well done.

Classic pilsner look, hazy straw color with a foamy white head. Gorgeous beer. Grassy noble hop aromas accompanied by bready maltnotes officially have me salivating.

The noble hops really dominate the taste at the beginning, then give way to the bready malt flavors. A perfectly executed German pilsner, IMHO, and another world class beer from a world class brewery.

Rating to style more than personal preference.
Light straw yellow, mostly clear pour with two fingers fluffy white head.
Sweet grains on the nose, light hoppiness.
Taste follows, sweet grain, light earthy hops.
Light to medium body with good carb levels.
Overall a good hot summer day crusher!

I got a can of this from a beer store in Atlanta just before my appendix went cray cray. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had faint grain. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with grain presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Legacy, single shelf purchase.
LOOK: Pours a most clear, very, very light pale yellow with a two finger head that has very good retention and maintains solid side glass lace.
AROMA: Some mild aromatic hops, grains, a little toasty, cold metal.
TASTE: More malts here, refreshing, easy drinking. A Pilsner with a little more than the norm in Pilsner complexity.
This one had some of the same characteristics, especially in the look as the recently reviewed Jekyll, MAMA PAJAMA.

Appearance - Pours clear straw color with big fluffy white head, great retention. Sheets of lacing.

Aroma - Light wet hay, sweet grains, caramel, malt and a very light herbal scent.

Taste - Wheat, malt, grains, light floral flavor. The flavors are a little watered down or maybe muddled.

Feel - Light bodied good carbonation not as crisp as I expected lays a little heavy at the end.

Overall - I feel like this is just a touch away from being a Pils I would really enjoy.

looks like this is one of the more popular beers these guys do, and i can see why! its a really light and crisp example of the style, even more than most, with a nice dry cereal european pils malt complexion at its core, and a nice little slightly higher alpha hop thing going on, but noninvasive for the most part. the lager yeast has a light german character to it, but is pretty mild as they go, when lends to the clean taste and feel of this, majorly drinkable and refreshing when its freezing cold, but it warms up ahead of the curve too, clean all the way, light minerals and dry soup crackers, a lighter body, and very high carbonation that also lends to drinkability. simple stuff, nothing radical or experimental or wild here like their best beers seem to be, but this is every bit at the quality level of their best. nice to have something so easy drinking in their lineup, i enjoyed this a lot, definitely a hot weather pils, maybe a three season pils. nicely done overall, these guys never miss!
