With its striking brilliant golden colour and firm head, it presents a delicately malted floral nose. A straightforward first sip is followed by a complex, supple flavour on the palate which comes from the use of maize in the brewing process. A reasonable degree of bitterness and sustained aftertaste make this an ideal pils for refreshing any occasion. By concentrating its expertise, without ostentation or fuss the Brasserie Lefebvre proves with its Manneken Pils that a good beer should not owe its success to the strength of its marketing.
