‘Take your time and do it properly’ is a maxim we take to heart at Williams Bros.

Cold fermented as lagers are supposed to be, it takes it's time to brew... true to the traditions of it's classic Czech and German equivalent.

The evolution of our straight up easy drinking lager is nigh, meet it's successor "S189/14". The 14th version of this recipe, now dry-hopped with "Pure Hop" Cascade pellets & fermented with our house S-189 lager yeast. 

Pale & refreshing with citrus & floral notes, the perfect thirst quenching lager.

Tasting Notes


Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Make yourself comfortable in a well-lit room. Pour your beer into a glass and take a good, long look.

Describe what you see. Is it clear or cloudy? Does the foam on the head stick around or quickly dissipate? Is that foam "rocky" or "fluffy" and how would you describe its colour? Does the foam leave "lace" on the glass as you sip the beer? And the bubbles? Tight and champagne-like or larger and more bulbous?

Finally, colour: Use as many words as you want to describe it.

Pale Golden

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Did you know the sense of smell accounts for about 80% of flavor perception?

Okay, here we go: Let your freshly-poured glass of beer breathe for a few moments. Now, give it a few brief sniffs. Swirl the glass a bit—like you’ve seen wine-buffs do—and have another whiff. Look past the obvious "smells like beer" responses. What other aromas are you getting? Maybe toasted malts, piney hops, maybe ester-and-phenol-producing yeast? Fruit? Spices?

Floral, Citrus

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood


Now that you have visually inspected your beer & described its aroma, you can engage in tasting. Remember that tasting is about the transition of flavors from the first sip contact through the finish.

Allow the beer to coat the inside of your mouth. Allow the liquid to run the full gamut of your tongue and hit all those taste bud areas, importantly, the bitterness receptors at the back of the tongue.

Now, describe the length, intensity and quality of the finish.

Crisp, Clean, Refreshing, Citrus.

ABV stands for Alcohol By Volume. It is a standard measure of how much alcohol is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage.

IBUs ?

Brewer's Lingo


IBUs stands for International Bittering Units. We use the IBU scale to measure of the bitterness of beer, which is provided by the hops used during brewing.

The bittering effect is less noticeable in beers with a high quantity of malt, so a higher IBU is needed in heavier beers to balance the flavor.

OG ?

OG stands for Original Gravity.
