From a can, this is a typical euro-pils....slightly sulfur-scented and skunky, with a bready note. The taste is lightly hoppy and sweet with pale malt. The sulfur note continues. Medium in body and lightly sweet and bitter in the finish. Average for the style.

Served on tap in a shaker pint at Pass & Provisions bar (Houston) for happy hour. Clear, pale gold with a frothy head of clean, white foam. Mild aroma bready malt and grassy hops. Light bread and biscuit malt with refreshing lemony, grassy hops and clean bitter finish. Light body with crisp carbonation. Nothing more than what it is, but a great easy drinker and HH draft.

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.

Coming out of the bottle it looks almost like water. In the glass it is very clear, visible carbonation and with just a touch of straw color. A modest frothy film retains well.
In the nose it is first grassy, floral and herbal. This is followed by a cereal grain sweetness.
In the mouth it drinks smoothly and with a slight crispness. Clean but with a grainy malt flavor. There is some grassiness and mild hops spiciness in the finish. The body is light but with some character.
Not sure if this is the same beer as Bavik Pils or a different version renamed Super Pils. I've had Bavik Pils and it was watery and pretty non descript. Regardless, I liked this version or experience better.

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.
