The summer season for pilsners kicked off this year with Avery's Joe Pils, canned for your camping convenience, and wrapped in aluminum for easy chilling in your refrigerator, a stream or a lake. Wherever you take this beer, this beer takes you to a wonderful and cooling place, crisp and lively with all the flavors of summer. The head is light and fluffy, like a rolling summer cloud, with an intensely cloudy body reminding me more of a witbier than a crystal clear pils. The aroma has a light touch of hops, more assertive than other pilsners, light and crisp and refreshing even in the nose. It's a medium bodied beer, with a sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with a bite of flowery hops, carried by a roiling stream of carbonation. The pilsner astringency is well matched against an alcohol bite. Also, not a touch of skunkiness or sulfur. I suspect the opacity of the can helps here, but whatever the reason, this is a local and very refreshing take on a classic and cooling style. I'd love to learn more about the 'classic' and 'contemporary' elements in the Joe Pils.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw colored body. Looks great.
The aroma is lemon with a little funk in the background. I'm not sure what that's about.
The taste is generally mild, some light to moderate lemon bitterness shows up midway through. The finish is shorter and a touch sweet with a dry bitter note at the very end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Nice, not great though.
