Bavik has a medium-to-thick, soapy, white head, and hazy golden appearance, some lacing left on the glass, and an enormous amount of bubbles. When I swished the bottom 20% of the bottle, a cloud was seen descending in the glass and lots of little brown specs were visible in the beer. The aroma is of sweet, full, lightly-roasted barley malt, white bread, and a slight hop zing. Taste is of the same elements, with a wonderful, somewhat piney (if you can believe it) hop bitterness showing up mid-sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bavik finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and wonderful. Each sip gets better, and I recommend, in the strongest way, trying this delightful beer!

2.46/5  rDev -25.2%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.25

Pours a clear, bright, straw yellow with a voluminous white head. Scattered lacing results when the head dissipates to a chunky film.
Smell is missing. A lot of inhalation results in little being found, some citrus/floral hops, some faint malt. Is this a BMC product?
Taste is much more prevalent with the aforementioned citrus & floral hops, malt, a wee bit of alcohol but no burn, some saltiness crackers, maybe some apple?
Medium bodied with restrained effervescence. A decent, fading, aftertaste. This isn't a BMC brew, the hops are not overpowering, it has some flavor and some balance. There really isn't anything to recommend this but it's no drain pour either. To quote a friend, "it doesn't suck". But that is the best thing I can say about it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale straw color and a little hazy; kind of unusual for a pilsner. Nice lacework as the very delicate foam falls. This beer has a delicate aroma of grain with a hint a grassiness. A very light, delicate pilsner, with a bit of spritziness to it. (This could be the result of my careful pour.) The flavor is grainy with hint of minerals. The finish is fairly bitter and dry. Almost makes me think of light version of Duvel. What attracts me the most with this beer is its gentle graininess in the flavor and dryness. Nothing too exciting here, just a well made, dry pilsner.
