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.
Serving type: on-tap
