This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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. Finally, the zest and juice from blood oranges are added. The result is a nice easy drinking lager that exhibits a tart and citrusy aroma and flavor.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a very, very nice golden hue that was crystal clear with a good sticky half inch white head that faded to a thin blanket.

S - Gaah, blood orange galore here! The typical bready malts are here along with the usual pilsner hop aromas, grassy and floral, and then WHAM citrus packed blood oranges. Very crisp on the nose.

T - Taste is just what I was hoping for, just like the nose with tons of blood orange notes up front. After that it goes back to being a pils with nice bready malts, noble hops and a good grassy finish. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is spot on for a pilsner. Crisp and clean.

O - Overall this is so damn easy to drink. I'd love a growler of this one...this may be the first blood orange beer I've ever had.

Waitress said this was an ipa. At first smell, I knew it was no where near an ipa. Nor did she say this was a collaboration with Mik. I guess that's why it was $8 or 9.50 a glass.

Pours a white head leaving sticky lace. Color is a clear vibrant golden bronze.

Aroma: A lot of bready malts. The hop profile reminds me of a pils (at the time not knowing it was a pils). seems grassy, earthy, floral, and noble. The blood oranges show nicely.

Taste: Blood oranges up front. Citrusy and fruity. Again, bready malts. Very pils like. Noble hops. Very grassy.

Mouthfeel: Citrusy and clean. Light bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends fruity.

Overall, claimed to be an ipa, this tastes nothing like. Definitely tastes like a pils. In that case, it is awesome. Very easy to drink. I enjoyed this one.
