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 pourallowing 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 styleor any lighter lagerwill take a beating as an import, this is a good effort albeit nothing more than what was to be expected.

Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Now many people will know how much I love a bit of Bavik especially the premium pils which I will happily down a case of in one evening. Clear pale gold lasting white head. Yeast and lemon on the aroma. Now that is a completely acceptable pilsner. Not great but absolutely fine. Good hop and lemon on the finish. Wish Id bought more for 90 euro cents a bottle. As always Bavik stands up for pale lager.

Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a billowy white head of foam. Over time the head fades a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the brew is strongest of cereal grainy smell with a modest amount of a somewhat skunky and herbal smell. Mixed with these aromas are a little bit of caramel and a touch of earth and yeast. Taste-The taste begins with a caramel sweetened grainy taste that has a touch of earthy hop and some yeast. As the taste moves on the graininess dwindles a little bit all while the sweetness remains. During this time a bit more hop of an herbal and more earth come to the tongue and leave on with a somewhat sweeter, but still rather crisp and clean taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the style and the flavors it is a nice feel and makes for an easy drinking brew overall. Overall Crisp, pretty flavorful and easy drinking. A pretty decent pilsner overall, but nothing too out of the ordinary.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin white ring. Light carbonation and very little lacing. Sweet grainy aroma. Very light body. Semi sweet grainy malt taste with a slightly bitter finish. Rather Blah and not very enjoyable.

Capa (3135) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2016
A real thirst quencher. Clean crisp hop profile with light grain underneath to add some body. A touch spicy. Quite easy to gulp. A real nice pils that is gonna find a spot I my pilsner rotation.
