Is Miller Lite actually a pilsner?
The Original Light Beer
Back in 1975 we didn't just brew any light beer—we brewed Miller Lite, a true American Pilsner.
Product Details. Miller Lite Beer is the original light lager beer. Smooth, light and refreshing, this American-style pilsner beer has 4.2% ABV. This light beer has a hop-forward flavor, solid malt character, and a clean finish.
Is Coors a pilsner? Technically no. True pilsner is “all-malt” beer, meaning that it only uses malted barley for fermentation. Coors and Budweiser both have American-style “adjuncts”, or non-barley fermentables.
Popular Lager beers are Heineken, the Mexican brewed Corona Extra, Samuel Adams, Budweiser, the mountain cold Coors Light, and Bud Light.
Pilsner is brewed with pilsner malt and lager yeast, which is bottom-fermenting and distinguishes lagers from ales. Lightly kilned malted barley, spicy hops that so define the aroma and flavor of this style, lager yeast, and soft water are all that's needed for the skilled brewer to produce a fine pilsner.
Stella is officially classified as a Euro Pale Lager, but some consider it to be a pilsner. It pours like most lagers—with a thin, white head and a crisp, golden color. It is traditionally served in a signature Stella Artois chalice; however, a normal beer pint will do just fine, as long as it is poured correctly.
