Notes / Commercial Description:
Unpasteurized Belgian Pilsner

Bavik Super Pils obtains its unique taste and aroma from its exceptional brewing process. Our pilsner has not been diluted, we only use aroma hops, guarantee a long and cold maturation process, and pasteurization is out of the question. Those four elements result in this unique pilsner.

Never compromise on taste!

This is an exceptional example of the style. Spot on for a pilsner.

Not going into a detailed review here, had it on tap tonite at Hay Merchant in Houston. Was craving a pils and it was the only one on the menu. Not sure why it isn't getting much love here. Good looking in the glass, slightly cloudy, probably due to it not being filtered. Had a good nose of Saaz hops, grassy slightly floral. Taste was good base pilsner malt shining thru with some grassy notes in the middle and a good clean, crisp finish. Did the job

From notes taken 07/10/17:

Clear and pale, straw gold, and by gold, I do mean metallic. Wispy, webby head of soft, fine, delicate white foam. Very fresh citric, grass, and bready aroma, lemons and lime, though faint, are the strongest notes, followed by dough. Palate leans more toward grain or even biscuits, as well as some honey, with hops taking on a more floral character, though still plenty suggestive of lemons. Good balance and complexity, apart from grainy backbone, it shifts from tart and fruity to a purely bitter, flower garden finish, albeit mildly so. Light to medium in body, with medium level of softer, creamier suds.

11.2oz can with a date on it. Consumed during a holiday bender

Saw this weird looking pack in the fridge and knew I needed to buy it. I saw the words "Belgian" and "pilsner", confirming my instincts. What I first notice is how clean this beer is. Even after warming it doesn't have a bunch of weird off-flavors. The overriding theme here is clean pilsner taste.

Super Pils deserves the name

On tap:
Pours a pale golden, with a nice white top and a fairly significant lacing.

Nose is on point, crackers grain with a light but clean to dry grassy bitter balance.

Taste is actually a little cleaner than I’d like, the Pilsner malt seems cut by a tad. But not too much, I bet the malt and the grassy bitterness. Light feel with moderate carbonation.

A nice beer that slowly got better in my mind. Definitely worth a try.

11.2 oz can that was very fresh. Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a fresh white head. smell of grass and floral hops Taste had some noble hops with grainy malts and grassy finish. Lower carbonation with light crispness in hops a sweet finish. A serviceable pils here, many others that are better thou.

Right from the start... This is a DRUNK review... IOW- I had a few. Regardless... on with the review.

L - Rather plain label that reminds me of Eastern Europe in the 1980's... interesting. There's a stamp on the back label that says "42633." But it's a product of Belgium so.... I crack the cap and...

Poured gently into a snifter. Very thin head and almost no retention. Clear golden color.

S - Smells sour with a suggestion of sweet. That's the best I can do.

T - Malty... Like it's 6-9 months old.

F - Thick... almost milky.

O - No way to give an accurate rating. What I'm drinking right now is obviously old and not what the brewer or the regular drinkers expect.

Pours dull yellow gold. A finger of white head sticks around and leaves chunks behind.

Smells grassy with slight hop spice. Unsure of the production date, but I hadn't noticed it in my beer store until this past week.

Good pils taste. Leans malty without much hop spice, but also nothing offensive in terms of off-flavors. 5.2%, so perhaps leaning a little sweet.

Not as crisp as I like them. Slightly too sweet and full, but perhaps that's age.

Not a great pils, but for sure a decent and drinkable one.

Considering the mentorage (soon to be a new word in the English language) of some German colleagues of my past, who stated: “It takes seven minutes to pour a good pils” — this isn’t quite there. Howsomever, this pils closely approaches the skunky, hoppy flavor of the German/Czech pilseners, which I seek after of blissful day of labour.

Poured a slightly hazy straw yellow with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly to a thin film. Very light grass aroma. The aroma is almost non-existent. Initial taste is a light sweet malt followed by a slight grass taste and sourness on the tail. Just a bit of bitter hops. Light-medium body with medium carbonation. This German Pilsener is ok but I would rather have a Weihenstephaner.

Poured from an 330 ML bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light gold color with a small white head. The aroma is mild grass and hops. The taste is mild with a bit of zing at the finish. A nice session beer.
