felsenpils (122) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bavik is Belgium´s best pils. Way better than Stella Artois, Jupiler or Maes. Clear golden color with nice white foam and a clean aroma. The taste is more like a Bavarian Helles than a pils, although a little less malty than a Bavarian Helles. All in all a nice beer. A step up from Stella and Heineken. Only drawback is that it is hard to find.

EtTuCthulhu (1279) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2015
The beer pours a slightly hazy light golden with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends pils malt, bready undertones, light lager yeast, and a touch of citrusy hops. The taste is slightly sweet and a touch sour with an aftertaste that is a touch bready. The palate fuses an average carbonation, light body, and a somewhat creamy texture.

rjplumer (588) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2015
Grain, malt and grass aroma which is all on light side. Golden body with a faint haze. Foamy one fingered head that lingers quite a bit. Smooth grainy malt taste. Character seems to be over quickly. Clean finish as advertised. Pleasant to the end.

hawthorne00 (2682) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Aroma is grainy with light floral and grassy hops that whilst shy are nice enough. Thinnish but rather sweet and grainy, hops are there but hardly in abundance. OK, but forgettable.

Lore (1356) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 21, 2015
very pale yellow colour, moderate sized white head; aroma of garins, grassy and floral hops; taste is the same with some cardboard; average lager

Douberd (2947) - 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 (8455) - 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 (2628) - 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 (1003) - 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

Very pale color, bad aftertaste, bit watery in the mouth, claims to have a citrus taste but nowhere to be found. Very bad pils
