Joe's pours a surprsingly hazy, light straw yellow with a very white, dimpled head. I can tell the lacing here will be great already. Smell is a wonderful, crisp, bright aroma, lots of floral aromas with a bready background. Strong smells, quite good, makes me qant to drink it.
Mmmm, that wonderful pilsner hops really translates well across the palette. Hops are front and center, with a more assertive bitterness than the typcial macro "pilsner"; complex and deep. Great hopping here; Avery are masters of hops here in Colorado. The light malt tastes are present, mostly a bready subtley, but essential to the robust strucutre of the beer. Lingering bitterness makes you want more of that crackling first tastes you get with each sip. The beer is lively, active and most of all, tasty.
Bottom line; a hoppier pilsner that is both sessionable and enjoyably complex. Bold tastes, much more here than your avergae pils. Good stuff.

Pours very light golden - more towards pale straw yellow. A thin head soon collapses, but rings of lacing stick.
The smell is of mild grain with a touch of grass.
The taste is of a grainy sweet kiss soon followed by dry, lemony, floral hops.
It is light-bodied. It's more astringent than a lager should be, but the carbonation level fits.
It has a sharp bite to it. It does have a floral character in the finish that gives it a bitter dryness. It's a "different" pils/pale lager. A raw pils/pale lager. More hops doesn't necessarily make a better beer. Even still, it was "interesting". A fine choice for a hoppier lager.

Golden yellow color with a thin head with low retention.
Aroma of herbal hops, pale malt and some lemony.
Flavor of sweet white bread malt with herbal hops, lemongrass, green apples and finishing with a crisp and refreshing orange lemon peel citrusy.
Light body with perfect carbonation.
Perfectly executed, balanced and utterly pleasant Pilsner, though I was expecting some extreme hopping. A Pils to have it always in the fridge when you are craving the style. I would not trade this one by relatively boring traditional Pils.

App: Pours a light yellow with a slight greenish hue. Two finger rocky white head that retains well. Constant stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.
Smell: Pleasant, light grainy smell with a little bit of bittering hops aroma on the back of the nose. True to style and a little sweet smelling.
Taste: Mild and sweet malt flavors abound in the true taste. Fore taste is slightly hoppy but overall a little underwhelming. Hints at the special sweet character of some AALs, but without tasting adjuncty. Significant bitterness in the aftertaste that really cleans up the predominant malt flavors and makes for a lingering finish that makes you want to take another sip. Slight lemony citrus flavors, but by no means assertive. Not a whole lot going on but well balanced. Proof that this style can be crafted well. Would make a great session beer or lawnmower beer.
Mouth: Light bodied and heavily carbonated. Refreshing and effervescent. I think this can may have been slightly overcarbed, as it foamed when opened and is making me burp A LOT.
