imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Festival í14. Gold with white head. This is a fruity, golden beer, pineapple and grapefruit combination, it becomes a little astringent later on but still a decent beer.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Cask at PSBH, Manchester. Mostly clear gold with soapy white foam. Offers a brief dance through tropical fruit flavours before becoming kind of resinous and bitter towards the end. Slightly thin palate but it allows the hops to shine. Nice and refreshing drop.

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.

stravale (2847) - 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.

[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]
