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.

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
