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.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - NOV 10, 2015
5%ABV. Pils. Poured out of the bottle a pale clear blonde. 4ºSRM. Nose is full of wheat flour and wheat dough aromas. Clean and not very aggressive, but just because its subtle doesn’t mean this is a simple brew. Mouhfeel is light watery with pronounced carbonation. The palate is pale malt, with water biscuit with plenty of wheaty type flavors of flour, dough and raw peanuts. Still malt balanced but with a very brief hoppy appearance to cut the palate off. Finish is clean wheaty, beery and brief. Would be another good food pairing beer: fish, curry, yakitori, paella or some noodle dish, maybe pho.

tia (1538) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from my hubby’s stash. Almost greenish yellow with a thin, but fairly lasting white head and decent lacing. Smells vegetal, cereally, and citric. A little honey comes out in the flavor plus some citricness that lends more of an astringent feel than a flavor but cuts the sweetness. A tad harsh.

Block (2062) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2015
This is just a super weak beer all around. Light from the appearance to the finish. It has the typical Belgian flavors but minimal body.
