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.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 Draft.It pours gold with a thin white head and lacing. The aroma is biscuits and slight citrus fruit. Nice pils.

Clean finish, clear pale to straw yellow appearance. Poured from can into tasting glasses. Slightly fruity end note, "crisp" group noting. Rachel - No special comments Paul - Excellent for a pilsner, very nice clean finish, good translucent yellow color and nice head. Chris - Nice, malty backbone

RedSox2004 (2000) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Clear straw yellow with a beautiful bright white head, nice lace and lively effervescence. Pleasant biscuity malt and lemon aromas. Toasted malt flavor with hints of citrus, spices and earthy hops. Light body, animated carbonation, light creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp dry finish.

F: thin, white, quick gone. C: yellow, clear. A: malty, sulphur, bit herbal, bit yeasty. T: malty, sweet grassy, weak but harsh bitterness, light oily mouthfeel, medium body, low carbonation, smell is not good but taste can reach average almost, 25cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven.

Erzengel (9779) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
Smooth mild beginning. Neutral body, sessionable with grainy hints. Long neutral aftertaste with hints of grain and not much bitterness.

1.9
Piepenhenrich (1289) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Once again, I don't see what makes this Lager a PIls, especially not super or - as mine was labelled - Premium. No comparison to a German or Bohemian Pils. Drinkable, yes, but nothing to get excited about.
