BEER

Served at the brewery in a ten ounce pils glass. I don't need big pours, son!

Light golden body, perfect clarity. It looks flawless. Lace is sticky and widespread. Foamy white head is there but I didn't give it time to dissipate. 5

Smells malty with a light floral hop. A bit of spiciness too. 4

Sweet malt and a corn-like flavor. A spicy hop flavor wrapped around the bready sweetness. The finish has a beautiful floral touch. 4

Light, full-bodied and carbonated and bitter when it needs to be. Light bitterness lingers to offset the sweeter front. 4.25 (566 characters)

This is La Cumbre’s aptly named American style lager—an American-style pilsner, from what I understand, right down to the use of rice. Proving that adjunct brewing does not have to mean flavorless.

“Give me a beer.” Ha. Under the most nondescript of names goes one of the most flavorful of light pilsners I have tasted in recent memory. (Which means, one of the most flavorful of pilsners I have tasted, period. I’d say this ranks second to Live Oak’s incredible brew in my opinion.) Utterly fantastic.

This poured a clear, light golden straw in color with thin lacing. It has a lightly hopped aroma with green grassy notes. Flavor—oh, what flavor!—is crisp and grassy, with a mild biscuity finish and a honeyed sweetness that emerges as it warms. Pleasing and enjoyable. (794 characters)
