Mikkeller Dim Sum
(Always drink responsibly. Seek help when alcohol affects your life and the lives of those around you. For readers of a legal drinking age.)
When a brewery has produced more than 6,000 different types of beer within seven years, it has to be commended for its tenacity. Creativity clearly is flowing freely. Mikkeller has impressed me before, but I’ve also been put off by the taste of one. The Pilsner-style Dim Sum happily makes its home right around average – I hardly dislike it, don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t knock my socks off, especially for the price. With a golden head, 5% ABV, and unknown IBU, it’s light and refreshing. Having been brewed with coriander and lemongrass makes it more refreshing, but honestly the lemongrass was very faint and the coriander was even more so. This would be a nice accompaniment for an afternoon, outdoors, picnic concert. Too bad now is not really the season for that!
