This pilsner pours pale straw in color, with a floral herbal nose. Unfortunately, the thin, white head falls quickly even though it retains a bit of lacing. (A good pils, as a German brewmaster friend of mine once told me, should take seven minutes to pour—allowing the head to dissipate. “Any less than that, send it back,” he claimed.) Regardless, Bavik has a balanced mouthfeel, with plenty of sweetness to compliment the crisp, herbal finish. While I have to consider that this style—or any lighter lager—will take a beating as an import, this is a good effort … albeit nothing more than what was to be expected.

inbirraveritas (1352) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2015
Bottled, 25 cl. Shows a clear yellow with a fluffy white head on it. Low-keyed bready nose. Aroma brings pale malts escorted by mild grassy hops, crisp mouthfeel. Short and rather sweet finish underpainted by shy hints of grassy hops again.

Draft - pale yellow honey colour. Medium carbonation, only small white head after settling - lemony aroma. Fairly weak tasting pilsner.

Sour after taste, pale golden colored. Foams up quickly. Pretty okay for a pilsner, I’ve tasted better.

EtTuCthulhu (1376) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2015
The beer pours a slightly hazy light golden with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends pils malt, bready undertones, light lager yeast, and a touch of citrusy hops. The taste is slightly sweet and a touch sour with an aftertaste that is a touch bready. The palate fuses an average carbonation, light body, and a somewhat creamy texture.

rjplumer (668) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2015
Grain, malt and grass aroma which is all on light side. Golden body with a faint haze. Foamy one fingered head that lingers quite a bit. Smooth grainy malt taste. Character seems to be over quickly. Clean finish as advertised. Pleasant to the end.

hawthorne00 (2832) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Aroma is grainy with light floral and grassy hops that whilst shy are nice enough. Thinnish but rather sweet and grainy, hops are there but hardly in abundance. OK, but forgettable.

Lore (1478) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 21, 2015
very pale yellow colour, moderate sized white head; aroma of garins, grassy and floral hops; taste is the same with some cardboard; average lager

Douberd (3192) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
(Bavik Premium Pils) Bottle 250 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.3% Pale golden colour on the body, small white head with low retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass, stale hops, straw, some apples. Taste of apple, grass, some malts, light bitterness. Thin body, average carbonation. Okay for what it is.

3fourths (8603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Draft. Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy and citric and lightly grassy. Cracker-y Pilsner malt is lightly husky and starchy. Faint plastic and saccharine off-notes. Light bodied, sweet and twangy with quiet bitterness. Noble hops expressed well but malt is simple and sweetness a little high. Not as bad as expected, easily drinkable but doesn’t demand your attention.
