I tried Bavik on tap at Cafe Bruges in Carlisle, PA, poured into a Bavik glass. It has a light golden hay color with lots of carbonation and a standard white head. Smell was minimal, basically that of an adjunct lager. The taste was adequate. I would sum it up as a downscale Stella Artois. Mouthfeel was light and extremely carbonated. Overall, this is an average, fairly unimaginative, beer.

Such a great, unassuming light beer. If you want a light, refreshing beer, with a minimal taste this is the beautiful Pilsener for your taste buds to enjoy. Reminds me of Whittkerke!

Bavik served in a 10 oz marked glass with a gold rim at Sharp Edge bistro in Pittsburgh. The beer is a light gold with a clumpy white head. It did have really nice lacing.

The beer has a nose of grass, grains and a bit of floral hops.

Nice pilsner. It leads with some grainy undertones; a bit of perfume from the hops and finishes with a nice bit of old school euro sulphur.

The mouth is crisp and workman like

Easy drinker and easy to pair with salads, chicken, and mild cheeses

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, apple, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a clean finish with no lingering flavors. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good pilsner. Well balanced malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A bit bland on character, but not watery. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.
