Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner, a canned offering from Avery Brewing, poured a transparent pale gold out of the can, with mild carbonation trailing to a short-lived, loose white head. The nose had notes of soft key lime and white pepper, both subtle but complex.
Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner opened bright and crisp, with minerals and slight pepper flacors enhanced by carbonation. The middle was very light and watery, and took on a slightly grassy tone. The pilsner sweetened slightly as it faded, with mild herbal notes and soft lime rind finishing the experience.
Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner achieves pilsner lightness and sessionability while maintaining subtle depth. I have had very few beers that manage to be light but nuanced, and Avery nailed it.
