I’ve gotten very behind on posting due to my work schedule. So, hopefully I can get a few posts done tonight.
Style: Czech Pilsener
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Come one come all, Welcome to the Bloody Show
A collaboration beer between Mikkeller and Against the Grain Brewery. Simply a Blood Orange Pilsner. Brewed with German Pilsner and munich malts, hopped with American Citra, Columbus, Amarillo and Czech Saaz and fermented with Danish lager yeast. Then we added the zest and juice from a shit-ton of blood oranges. The result is a nice easy drinking lager that exhibits a tart and citrusy aroma and flavor.”
Random: I loved playing the Friday the 13th NES game, but was never very good at it.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated quickly, but left some lacing on the glass. The body was slightly hazy and bright orange in color. There was moderate carbonation visible. The nose was not as fragrant as I expected. There was some orange peel and a lot of malt, but nothing that I could specifically discern as blood orange. The taste had slightly more orange flavor, but not much. I picked up orange zest and orange oil and it quickly went into malt. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with orange peel. A can of this was $3.75, which came to $.23 per ounce. I really wanted to like this beer, but it was a bit disappointing. I won’t be rushing to have this again.
