I used to serve this at Brewology in Speonk, NY. This was our best seller by a good margin. I would agree with some posts that this beer is better on tap. For me, this is a good example of the style. I also agree with some posts indicating a smooth banana, apple, and a hint of bitter hop in the finish. What sells me on this beer on tap is that it has a great color and it has a crisp and clean finish.

11.2 oz. can poured into pilsener
(6/1/2018 best-by printed on bottom of can)

L: pale yellow, clear, pushes up weak head of white foam, about 1/4-inch tall; shows lots of activity in glass despite weak pour, and it keeps most of a skin and a full collar of white foam

S: sour grain, grassy hops, lime peel; as it warms, a pinch of bread-malt sweetness shows up

T: mix of grassy hops and weak bread malt; also has an earthy bitter bite through midswallow, then the sweeter malt flavor kicks in

F: light, watery, but the carbonation does give it some body and crispness

O: a consolation prize winner at best, Bavik's pils lacks the big bread malt presence of the best imports in the style; the mix of earthy/grassy hops is tasty, but overall this one's going to be a one-and-done for me

Out of the can and into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light golden yellow color with a two and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing trickles down the sides of the glass. The smell was kind of grassy and hay-like. Light spritzy citrus with a light peppery spice came through. The taste was mildly grassy sweet with a crisp contour rolling over my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. There’s a great sessionability about it as a crisp refreshing fulfilling quality rolls over my tongue. Overall, for the style, this is pretty good for me it’s good and I would have it again.

On tap at Wursthaus in DTSA (downtown Santa Ana, CA). Maybe this beer is just way better on tap then it is in bottles because I have to disagree with the majority of reviews. I think this is a strong example of the style.
