COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Detta är en ljus ale som jäst vid rumstemperatur och därav fått en fruktig smak och doft. Den amerikanska humlesorten Amarillo har använts till både beska och arom, och bidrar med tydliga toner av citrus och tropisk frukt. Ölet har torrhumlats, d.v.s. humle har tillsatts i lagertankarna för att ge en förstärkt humlearom. Ölet är typiskt för den nya generationens småbryggerier från USA. I vinsammanhang pratas det om viner från den ”gamla världen” och den ”nya världen”. Med det menas att Europa är den gamla världen och till exempel USA och Australien tillhör den nya världen. Denna indelning kan göras även för öl. Mohawk VS är en parlansering som vill visa på de skillnaderna som olika humletyper skapar. Mohawk VS Amarillo är en öl från nya världen, humlat med Amarilo humle från nordvästra USA. Det ger ett öl med tydlig arom av citrus och tropisk frukt.

50 cl botlle from Systembolaget. Light amber/golden colour and soapy, medium off-white head. Smells of grapefruit, citrus (amarillo) and some malt. Medium bitter flavour with little sweetness. Light to medium body with ok carbonation. Better than the Goldings version but nothing extraordinary.

500ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Pine, toffee and grapfruit feature in the aroma. Hoppy and slightly sweet taste with caramel, grapefruit, pine and toffee detected. The finish is hoppy, sweet and slightly sticky. Enjoyable, but I think I was expecting a bit more.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2011
Aroma: pears, caramel, vanilla, yellow grapes and apricot, spruce needles, a nice acrid depth to it that reminds me of of brewdog paradox sans the whisky.
Flavour: it immediately strikes me as very well balanced. The hops and malt mingle very well and form a unity rather than balanced or unbalanced contrast. Slightly pungent, very fresh and resinous. The malt is not adding much sweetness and yet it manages to add a lot of body – at least given the gravity. The flavour alone probably deserves a 6, but having no annoying qualities at all – a rare thing! – I give it an 8, for this is the kind of beer I could drink every day. The aftertaste reminds me of nettles, onions and nigella seeds, albeit subtly, and finally leaves a very pleasant hop bitterness clinging. There is some vague milkiness going on as well – I would normally have called that sappy, but milky seems more appropriate in this case. I don’t know where it comes from. The alcohol is also doing its work perfectly flavourwise, it adds some heat and pungency and comes as natural with the other flavours as it would’ve done in a good single malt.
Appearance: pretty, ruddy amber with a moderate development of very fine-bubbled yellowish foam.
Palate: oily, slightly frothy, quite fizzy – really clings to your mouth.
