Cruzcampo Pilsener is a German-style Pilsener brewed by Grupo Cruzcampo SA, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a can.
The lager pours a crystal-clear straw and is topped by an inch-thick cap of bubbly white froth that persists briefly. A soapy collar rings the glass following the reduction. A continuous stream of fine bubbles rise in the glass.
The aroma is a light scent of grain and grassy hops.
The palate begins with a soft taste of white bread that crests to a bite of spicy noble hops.
Its feel is mostly smooth with a touch of grain on the backend. Its body is very light with medium-light carbonation.
The malt flavor is insipid made worse by a thin, watery body that’s insufficiently carbonated. A nice bite of spicy hops on the finish isn’t nearly enough to save this brew. The Cruzcampo Pilsener is a mass-produced lager that should be avoided.
