COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fruity one hop wonder. Brewed with Pale Ale malt, some Lager malt and a touch of light Cara. This single hop beer is made with Mosaic hops at each of the four stages of the brew process. This imparts bold hop characteristics, including peach, mango, lemon and pine flavours and aromas. Mosaic Pale ale goes brilliantly with lightly spiced dishes such as lamb tagine, thai fish cakes or scallops and chorizo. Design and Packaging Supreme Champion and Best New Individual design awards at 2014 International Beer Challenge.

September 14, 2014 - at Southwark Tavern - draught pint. Just so’s to be clear, I was stunned how good this was - Adnam’s? Really???? Amber-tinged gold, clear and bubbly, with a huge creamy and lasting white head. Aroma is light citrus with a bit of catty pungency, clean and fruity - a bit mild, and more of an APA, but a solid 7+. Taste follows, a bit of lemon - zesty and juicy, a little more robustness would be welcome, but a nice balance and an easy drinker - solid body and carbonation, medium-to-quickish finish - starts with tropical fruit and citrus, finishes dry and zesty, no residual sweetness in the aftertaste. Damned well done - not a world beater, but a huge surprise.

Bottle from Booths supermarket. Pours small white head. Pale tangerine body. Slight off note on the nose. Taste pleasant but watery. Reasonable, semi-interesting but by no means outstanding.

JonMoore (2022) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Keg at the Holburn Whippet, London. Deep gold colour with white head. Citrus, fruity aroma. Lots of citrus in the taste and other fruits, mango, peach. Some pine, soft carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing on a warm London evening.

mrjez (86) - Osaka, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle from Lingua World Cafe. L: a sparkly bubbly looking faint amber with a nice finger of white head. S: a big fruity hoppy nose, a touch of pine, almost a touch too sweet or artificial. T: quite tasty, plenty of fruit at the start, peach, grapefruit, a small hit of pine follows with the hops building. F: the mouthfeel is a slight letdown, kinda watery, decent carbonation, dry finish, not as lush as all those fruity flavours lead you to believe. O: an enjoyable pale, very sessionable at this ABV and body.

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2015
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, deep golden colour with a short and off-white foamy head. Fruity hoppy aroma with notes of blackcurrant, grapefruit, as well as a mildly herbal and subtle minty touch. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slim but not watery malty base with shades of caramel and a lot of fruity hops, including notes of blackcurrant, grapefruit and pineapple; mildly herbal spicy accents towards the slim and moderately bitter hoppy finish with a whiff of pine and resin in the aftertaste. Nice brew with a present Mosaic character. 07.IV.15

Bottle, Bird In The Hand, Halstead. Super clean, solid bitterness, punchy mangoes and grapefruit. Good dosage of papaya, crisp biscuity malt. Ideal on a hot day.
