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.

TET (2207) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2015
An slightly orange, a head is small and blond. Aroma has citrusfruits and mangos, not totally fresh. Taste has citrusfruits, some tropical notes, the bitterness is quite mild. Quite light bodied, but not watery. Not so fresh as this should be, good beer, anyway.

Lovely fruity beer thanks to the mosaic hops. Could possibly do with a bit more of a malty backbone

Marduk (4239) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Small size, bubbly white head, stays. Gosh that’s malty. Some dirty fruity elements and 2 days old chewing gum in aroma too. Dusty malts, weird dirty hops, burnt caramel in taste. Pungent bitterness. Got everything, but in different corners and refuse to dance. Unbalanced and messy brew.

Bitter taste with notes of herbs, fruit and grass. Gives a nice tingle over your tongue and fades into smoother tones. Very refreshing, very nice!

larsga (6824) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2015
Medium offwhite head. Clear coppery body with light carbonation. Fruity floral candy aroma with mealy notes. Dryish mealy strawy floral taste with fruity papery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish floral candy aftertaste with fruity mealy notes. It’s OK, but kind of stale and not great. (0.33l bottle, I forget where from.)

tiong (5234) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2015
330ml bottle from K-Citymarket Sello. BBE 31.10.2015. Pours clear golden orange with a smooth head. Aroma of berries, metallic notes, hints of tropical fruits and caramely malts. Taste is smooth, fruity and slightly metallic with hints of tropical notes, peach and mango. Finish is smooth, bland and slightly malty with hints of fruits and metallic notes. A bit dull and not very fresh.

TimE (4257) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2015
Found this to be a bit of a malty mess with malt winning over the hops, which should have been shining in this type of beer. Unbalanced and directionless, but not completely horrible.

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.
