Against the Grain Bloody Show

What the brewers say

“A collaboration beer between Mikkeller and Against the Grain Brewery. 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 blood-orange zest and juice. The result is a nice, easy-drinking lager that exhibits a tart and citrusy aroma and flavor.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate citrusy orange peel and slight pine hops aromas. The richness of the blood orange is well blended with the slight malt sweetness and the subtle hops. However, the aroma is fairly subtle overall.”

Flavor: “Fairly clean lager character throughout with a touch of malt sweetness up front that transitions into a some pithy bitterness. A subtle lingering citrus character competes with a slight hops bite.”

Overall: “The blood orange seems to get a bit lost in the mix until the finish. An interesting blend of piney and citrus hops flavors. Clean and quaffable, but a touch sweet.”
