Bavik Belgian Premium Pilsner

One of the great brewing nations is Belgium and they do such a wonderful job, and brew some of the world's most delicious beers. This here is Bavik a premium Pilsner, 5.0% ABV. This is a good sessionable beer. This beer is brewed in Bavikhove Belgium, and is a German style pilsner. This Bavik poured a golden straw yellow color with a one finger head that had lots of tiny bubbles to it, but it faded rather quickly. Plenty of light coming through this one with lots of carbonation. There is a good amount of lacing on the glass with this, but the lacing doesn't stick around for long. This looks like most premium European pilsners. The aroma of Bavik pils is of a sweet corn scent and a touch of barley. The barely is very faint but is there none the less. I found a very very faint metallic scent but once you do smell that it's gone in an instant. You get mostly a little sweet corn scent aroma on Bavik. Taste of Bavik is what you'd expect form a pilsner, there also is a nice sweetness a corn sweetness. It isn't over powering or anything. Mouth feel is low and refreshing. I did get a very faint  bitter sweet bite. This Bavik's taste is clean, crisp, light and refreshing. This beer finishes clean, crisp and refreshing. I did get a nice sweet corn bread like taste in the finish. Bavik has a good finish. Average European style pilsners better than most average American pilsner. Bavik is one of those. I would give this a B. Bavik is good; something that I would have during the week when I don't really want a full hearty flavorful big beer. I could sit and have a few of these. I would recommend this a good Belgian session beer for someone that likes Euro pilsners and is looking for something new. This is good I would have this again. You should try this one. Pick some up at Mikes Discount Beverages, 4700 Park Road, Charlotte,
