Silly Pils

This looks like another generic Euro beer dumped upon Australian shores, but there is more to it than it appears. Real Belgian Pils has some pretty bland packaging which it turns out has been designed for the export market. It’s probably fair enough in this instance – but a real shame that the distributors didn’t have a sense of humour.

The name in Belgium for this beer is Silly Pils – which is because this beer is brewed at the Brasserie de Silly in the small Belgian town of Silly. This Brasserie would be well worth a visit as it produces a wide variety of unusual beers, including a Scotch beer and one using pink grapefruit. This beer probably the worst/funniest label I’ve ever seen on a bottle – and BotF will try and source one for taste-testing.

Silly Pils is a pleasant enough beer without being particularly strong in taste. A great summer drop, but not one to go out of your way for.
