3.28/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 11.2 oz white, red and copper can. Freshness date on the bottom of the can. 11.2 oz? What’s up with that? If you are going to export a canned beer to the US it should be 12,16, or 24oz cans … don’t gyp us on .8 oz, Geezz!
Appearance: Thin cropped white lace, barely holds together though with each sip it rolls back again to a thick lace. Clarity is fine and is of the ultra cold filtered kind.
Smell: Faint rubbing of herbal hop and a fullness of grain in the aroma. Quite clean at that.
Taste: Clean palate within a light to moderate body, the hop flavour gets restless and throws around some leafy and herbal flavours as it drops a clean bite of bitterness. Maltiness is light and actually thin in a way with only a graininess that recedes to a husky flavour towards the end. A ghost like buttery flavour, faint metallic / earthiness and some very light warming alcohol wrap up the finish.
Notes: A decent Euro lager at best, Stella Artois is a half notch better but I’d rather have a Bavik for the sake of smaller breweries. Though at $5.99 a six pack of 11.2 oz cans it is a bit pricey for what you get.

2.46/5 rDev -25.2%

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.

3.45/5 rDev +4.9%
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.
