Free State Bleeding Kansas Lager


Brewed by Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Premium Lager | Ratings: 5 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: -
This light, crisp lager was created specifically for the Radler but certainly shines on its own. A base of clean German Pils malt marries with the lemon, orange, and tropical fruit character of Citra and Simcoe hops, a choice meant to enhance the citrus qualities of the Blood Orange Radler. “Bleeding Kansas” is the term New York journalist Horace Greeley gave to the skirmishes and violent turmoil between anti-slavery Free-Staters and pro-slavery “Border Ruffian” elements. O.G. - 12.35ºP/1.049 Hops - Citra & Simcoe- 14 IBUs
