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.

As Bavik Super Pils. Had to laugh a bit at the claim that hop was merely user for aroma... But even given that this could appeal to come, I don’t get the hop there either. Simplistic body with big bubble and surely a very short fermentation, despite the claim of the contrary. Ah well, what could I expect? (25cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven)

Can shared by some weird stoner lady. Some sweet malts and grassy hops, light bread, some herbs and very light metallic touch. Under medium sweet and bitter. Almost medium bodied. No real off flavors.

Aroma has clean malt and some noble hop character. Taste follows, quite clean and classic, quite bitter on the finish. Light body with crisp carbonation. Not bad but it’s generic and bland.

Very nice example of the style, light and crisp body, just a bit malty maybe kind of peachy

Straight from bottle. Nice grassy Pilsner aroma. Taste follows suit. This is a really nice German style Pilsner. One I will be buying again.

Has a nice, fresh, beery aroma, which is its best aspect. Flavor is so mild as to be barely present. What is there is just beer with perhaps a hint of mint. Kind of like a diet beer but with some body. And calories. :)
