Grabbed a single bottle @ Marty's in Newton, MA. Poured a pale yellow hue with a minimal white head. Not much in the aroma department; even though it's supposed to be a lager I still got a slight spice and fruit smell if you really stick your nose in it. I paired this beer with a pastrami on rye sandwich that really hit the spot. This beer is not really one of my favorites but it is definetley above average for the style. Good session beer.

Six-pack x 11.2 fl. Oz. picked up at Bottle King. Pours light and clean gold with 2 finger pure white head that dissipates quickly. Simple and crisp fruity refreshing. Sweet with grass hops. High level of carbonation. Overall, this is a nice pilsner.

This beer pours a healthy white head that slowly fades to an island of foam. A respectable lace clings and stays. Macro yellow in color with a greenish haze. The smell is pretty clean except for a faint belgian mustiness, which i really liked. Taste is more of the same fairly clean, crisp and really easy to quaff. All in all bavik is a great beer, even if it isn't quite true to style.

This is my first review.

I was compelled to review Bavik. I discovered it by accident at Trader Joe's. There was a single bottle floating about so I thought what the heck.

This beer goes down very easy and tastes great. Has a lovely feel to it.

Certainly a step or two above the macro euro lagers.
