"a contemporary rendition of a classic style. Hopped with purpose, Joe's is beautifully bitter and dry with an abundance of floral, Noble German hops. Uber-sessionable. Utterly American. This is Premium American Pilsner."

Poured a semi-clear golden body with a thin cap of white head that quickly dissipated. A classic looking lager, true to form and quite nice. Scents of lager yeast, Pilsner malt with a soft sweetness, fresh cut grass hop aromas, spicy, floral hops at lower, but discernible levels and a light sulphur aroma like in some German Pilsners. Overall impression of aroma is of a classic American-style Pilsner that comes across much like its German counterparts in aroma, with a nice balance of sweet malt and classic Noble hop style aromas. Very nice. Flavor begins lightly bitter with a grainy and softly sweet malt presence balancing and floral, spicy Noble hop flavors. This moves into a medium bitter middle with notes of grassy, floral, spicy Noble-like hops and a light sweetness from malt and a graininess. Finish is medium-dry with the Noble hop flavors continuing alongside light grainy malt and biscuit-like malt. Aftertaste is grainy and biscuit malt with a medium level of floral, grassy, spicy Noble hop bitterness. Overall impression of flavor is of a crisp, flavorful, straight forward Pilsner. It doesn't have a wealth of complexity, which is perfectly fine for the style. It is simply a straight-forward, easy to drink, classic beer. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a classic, true to style American Pilsner. Quite nice. Overall this is quite the nice treat. It is a crisp, refreshing, simple American Pilsner that is flavorful, fairly aromatic and quite pleasant on the tongue. It is very well executed and a fine example of a classic, and rather hard to find, American style. Highly recommended.
