Bavik Super Pils

ChadPolenz (1822) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2017

BBD: 1/6/17

2015 BJCP Category: 5D German Pils

AROMA: Moderate spicy Noble hop presence. Slightly skunky. Touch of lemon and honey as well. General pale malt scent with indication of sweetness. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Straw yellow hue (2-4 SRM); very clear body. Small, white foam. 3/3

FLAVOR: Medium Noble hop peppery/spicy flavor and bitterness right away. Moderately sweet malt base with a honey/lemon flavor quickly follows. Well-attenuated, clean fermentation. Hops linger momentarily, otherwise the aftertaste is clean. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium carbonation. Refreshing and crisp. Easily sessionable at 5.2% ABV, especially in warmer months. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Mostly to spec for the style, just a little mild. Fun and easy to drink, though. 7/10
