Tonight’s beer is one that I received as a gift from my cousin awhile back. Let’s crack it open.
Style: German Pilsener
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “In 2006 Mikkel Borg Bjergsø was a math and physics teacher that started experimenting with hops, malt and yeast back home in his kitchen in Copenhagen. Today, he exports his micro brewed beer to 58 different countries and is internationally acclaimed as one of the most innovative and cutting-edge brewers in the world. To date he has created over 1000 distinct & distinctive beers. Opened in March 2018 at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens, Mikkeller NYC is the Danish parent’s 1st U.S. location outside of California, and the 1st location connected to a professional sports venue anywhere in the world. In these first several months, Mikkel has created over 50 never-before-produced Mikkeller NYC beer recipes.”
Random: The cats are snoring so loudly, we had to turn the television up.
The beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was mostly clear and straw yellow in color. The nose had a decent amount of grain along with some orange zest. The taste was much of the same. It started with grain and mineral water and then had some orange zest which provided a touch of bitterness. The body was light with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with grain. This was a decent beer and went down easily. I would have it again.
