foyle (271) - Wyoming, USA - APR 13, 2014
Poured from 11.2 oz can into pint glass. Appearance: a frothy white head recedes with moderate lacing. Color is mostly clear light golden with plenty of sediment in suspension. Light streaming carbonation. Aroma: grassy hops, yeast rolls, barley malt. Mouthfeel: light and a bit oily with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: biscuit, fruit, raisin, white bread, grassiness and bitter herbs. Overall: very nice, would be glad to try this one again.

Douberd (2702) - 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 (8293) - 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.

stevoj (2383) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2015
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 ;)

freretoc (904) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 25, 2014
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

pedo (8) - - DEC 16, 2014 does not count
Very pale color, bad aftertaste, bit watery in the mouth, claims to have a citrus taste but nowhere to be found. Very bad pils

Alengrin (2615) - BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2014
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.

Bulk_Carrier (2310) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - SEP 1, 2014
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.
