Mikkeller Chill Pils Yuzu 
Posted: 22 April 2015  Beer Republic 6.0 
Mikkeller Chill Pils Yuzu from Denmark The Chill Pils Yuzu is a pilsner beer made with the juice of the citrus fruit called the yuzu. Think of the yuzu as an East Asian type of orange. But is this pilsner with the yuzu superior to a fine Czech made pilsner without the fruit juices? I'd prefer the traditional,

Mikkeller, the Danish brewing operator founded by Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Kristian Klarup Keller in 2006, is now the rage worldwide. Everyone wants a sip of.  Lately, the brewers have been partnering up with beer importers or craft beer lovers abroad to setup Mikkeller bars.  So far, Copenhagen, Stockholm, San Francisco, and Bangkok have 'em, with more, I am sure, to follow.       

My wife and I made it out to the Bangkok bar four or five months ago.  We weren't impressed.  The service was bad, the beer cost a fortune, and we had no idea what to order.  Two of the selections were brewed specifically for Mikkeller Bangkok.  The problem is:  when you're paying this much for a brew, you want to order something good, and we had no idea how to tell one from another.      

Here's a better idea.  Order boxes of the stuff at a discount and sample them, ice cold, in your own home with superb service, without having to tip anyone!         

The Chill Pils Yuzu is a pilsner beer made with the juice of the citrus fruit called the yuzu.  Think of the yuzu as an East Asian type of orange. Its juice is commonly used as a seasoning in Japanese cuisine.        

Consider that juice a seasoning to this pilsner, to set it apart from pilsners produced by the masses. Mikkeller prides itself on using unusual ingredients, and this beer doesn't disappoint on that end.        

But is this pilsner with the yuzu superior to a fine Czech made pilsner without the fruit juices?  I'd prefer the traditional, sorry, and I get to pay a lot less for it, too.
