felsenpils (134) - 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.

Block (1756) - 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.

inbirraveritas (1357) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2015
Bottled, 25 cl. Shows a clear yellow with a fluffy white head on it. Low-keyed bready nose. Aroma brings pale malts escorted by mild grassy hops, crisp mouthfeel. Short and rather sweet finish underpainted by shy hints of grassy hops again.

Sour after taste, pale golden colored. Foams up quickly. Pretty okay for a pilsner, I’ve tasted better.

EtTuCthulhu (1384) - 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 (685) - 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 (2874) - 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.
