2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Bue à la pression. Ils de base, peu d’intérêt particulier. Rafraîchissante au mieux ;)

Bue à la pression dans une taverne à Diksmuide, couleur très blonde, belle mousse effervescence importante, une bière maltée et peu houblonnée. Basique de soif

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very pale color, bad aftertaste, bit watery in the mouth, claims to have a citrus taste but nowhere to be found. Very bad pils

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bavik’s standard pale lager, with the typical pale golden blonde colour and snow white head; aroma fairly neutral but honest, revealing malt sweetness and grassy hops. Same for the taste: neutral and minerally, malt sweet, grainy, fortunately not cornish, with refreshing grassy hop bitterishness in the finish, but subdued. A little bit better than the same type of beer from the largest Belgian breweries, I’d argue, but still a boring pale lager.

"there’s some nice things going on here, but in the end it’s still just a slightly below average pils. some bitter hop/sweet malt interplay, but no follow through. light and not complex at all, but not bad either."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think this beer is pretty good. Compared to the more sophisticated Belgian styles, this one appeals to my tastes much more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Out of the can and into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a light golden yellow color with a two and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing trickles down the sides of the glass.
The smell was kind of grassy and hay-like. Light spritzy citrus with a light peppery spice came through.
The taste was mildly grassy sweet with a crisp contour rolling over my taste buds.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. There’s a great sessionability about it as a crisp refreshing fulfilling quality rolls over my tongue.
Overall, for the style, this is pretty good for me it’s good and I would have it again.

Can. Golden color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is weak watery with a slight grass smell. Taste is also weak and watery. Not a very good beer.

Alhoewel het maar een pils is, kan er bij pils ook een goede smaak aan zitten. Hier echter niet, echt een slechte pils

Draught @ The Times, Ieper. Pours clear golden with small but stable white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with malty notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of yeast and malt. touches of citrus. Bitter aftertaste with mild paperlike notes. Okay but nothing really special.
