Bottle. Poured a nice golden yellow color with small fizzy, white head. Nose is faint with yeast being the main component. Taste is crisp and clean. More flavor than an American pilsner. Very refreshing with sweet fruity malt with just enough hops to balance it out.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not very crisp, crossing over into blonde ale territory, hops are almost an afterthought. Sweetish cereal grains, light aroma and taste, extremely pale golden body, small wispy head. Cereal finish.

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

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."

I think this beer is pretty good. Compared to the more sophisticated Belgian styles, this one appeals to my tastes much more.
