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.

Wischylini (136) - Grimstad, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a hazy light gold with a faint white head. Doesnít look particularily appetizing, to be honest. Aromas are wonderfully fruity, while mostly dominated by citrus fruits, there are also some notes of peach and tropical fruits. The malt-based parts of the aroma is mostly centered around biscuits and light cereals. The taste is moderately sweet, and the mouthfeel is slightly thick. The carbonation is moderate.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle, probably from Morrisons. Orange amber floating a slim but clinging foam. Deeply juicy and resinous aroma of dragon fruit, tangerine, ganja and a dab of butter. Beautiful stewed hop flavour with notes of Darjeeling, strawberry, Sauvignon Blanc over biscuit and cashew. Good residual clout of bitterness. Will happily repurchase. Adnamsí reinvention continues. Bonus for calorie info on the bottle.

Iíve been shearching for this style of beer since the JD 2012 international beer festival shipped Australiaís Ferrell brewers over to the Bankís brewery to create "Australian IPA" . Bottle from the supermarket. Amber coloured, light carbonation & small white head. The tropical fruits are powerful on the nose. The initial light malt quickly givesway to way to the refined fruity hoppyness... A very good craft beer

wheresthepath (1568) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from Adnams Cellar & Kitchen, Southwold. Pours deep gold with a thin white head. Good whiff of peach and pine up front. In the mouth itís on the thin and watery side; unusually so for Adnams who are usually so good at using malt to create a great body. Thereís more peach and pine in the flavour, and some pineapple too. Itís well balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Overall itís actually quite a decent beer thatís been rather let down by the thin body.

Beese (1905) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
33cl Bottle. Poured golden, with a dense white head. Very nice aroma of fresh hops, citrus and grapefruit. Caramel sweetness in the flavour, which was more subdued than expected, considering the aroma. There was some sponge cake and herbal notes in there too.

Ragnampiza (492) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 3, 2014
330 ml on tap at Wench Pub. Dark golden yellow, quite clear, with a nice and persistent off white head. Rooty and earthy nose, slightly soapy and tropical. Not the cleanest example, but very British overall. Mineral upfront, decent bitterness and light astringency. Herbal and resinous aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Just decent.

visionthing (2792) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2014
33cl bottle from ICA Storo. Pours deep golden with a rather small, white head. Moderate hoppy aroma with citrus, pine, caramel and hints of tropical fruits. Moderate sweet with fruity flavours and a citrusy and bitter finish. Fair enough.
