Cask @ Bon Accord. Rich golden colour, good head. Resin citrus biscuit hop & malt aroma. Grapefruit & hop flavour. Citrus aftertaste. Big hoppy golden ale.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours golden with a slight haze and a nicely proportioned head. The nose has grapefruit into orange. In fact the taste confirms this as being somewhere in the pink grapefruit or blood orange spectrum. Thereís a minerally background thing too as youíd expect from cask. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer - a great advert for cask.

(cask) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of herbal hops, lemon peel and gooseberries, with a hint of chestnuts and vinegar. flavour is mostly lemon peel, herbal hops and straw, with a medium-bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 16, 2013
Cask @ Diggers, Edinburgh [140513]
Brilliant golden, clear, dense white head, good lacing
Aroma of soft grassy hops, bit odd woody floral notes, sweet pale malts, slight spicy, but there is a smell of sweat unfortunately thatís off putting
Taste - Fruity caramel malts, dab of tropical fruit notes then soft herbal hop with floral notes, some grassy hop in there, crushed flowers, bitter dryish lemon zest, quite a lot of sweet fruity caramel malts
Palate - Medium body, smooth, rather sticky. Bitter hop and oily sweet caramel malt palate. Finish is fairly lingering - bitter zesty hops with a background of sweet malts.
Overall - Interesting to try this hop, certainly it is complex, but maybe better used in combination. A bit too malty and sweet which made it somewhat heavy going.

Aroma: Light honey, earthy and peach aroma.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a thin white frothy head. No visible carbonation. Very light lacing marks.

Taste: Lemon, herbs and a hint of soap. I completely agree with the comment below about it tasting a bit like rhubarb and custard sweets - itís an unusual flavour but, for me, it works somehow. Sweet overall flavour with a dry, peppery, biscuity finish.

Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: I think this is the first time Iíve tried the Mosaic hop - itís quite complex and difficult to describe, but I quite like it.

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2013
[cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Pours a clear golden yellow, with a large white head. Extremely fruity, sticky sweet aroma, like over-ripe pears. Tastwise, starts off with some slight tropical flavours, but finishes in a very unusual sweet, soapy vibe that I was struggling with for ages, trying to pinpoint. My other half got it in seconds Ė rhubarb & custard boiled sweets. Mosaicís one heck of an unusual hop, and to be honest, one Iím not sure I like [14042013]

On cask on Larbert beer festival spicy fruity flavour distinctive hop character gives a very refreshing beer with slightly bitter finish
