Mazarin is my take on a “thinker’s beer”. Rather than being big and undecipherably complex I wanted to create something that would calm a hop yearning nerve without fuddling the brain too much. In other words, a lavishly hopped ale of judicious ABV — an Extra Special Pale Ale if you will.
In fact, so extra special that it snatched a gold medal at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2013.

Bottle->SA. Gold with small white head. Fruity hops with some caramel malt at play. Unbalanced and messy. Either this was well past its prime, or this particular pale ale blend is just not to my liking.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden orange and cloudy with agreeable lacing. Nose - very much canned mandarins! Something resin or earthy in the background. Taste - fresh jaffa oranges this time. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy dry middle section and a long dry finish. Overall - yes really tasty and balanced.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy pale golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of lemon, green apple, dusty yeast, salted lime and a hint of sherbet. Flavour of lemon, grapefruit and pale malt. Dry finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Simple and easy drinking.

Kaatuu tulpaaniin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, 2,5 sormen paksuisella kuohkealla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa esiin työntyvät selvästi greippinen ja puumainen humalointi lievän havun ja makeamman hedelmän kanssa. Maussa greippinen humalointi on dominoivin, puumaisuuttakin on, muttei niin paljoa kuin tuoksussa. Ruohoista ja lievää kukkaisuutta on joukossa, mutta hyvin vähän. Mallas tuntuu lievänä, hyvin lievänä viljaisuutena, mutta vain nyanssina. Suutuntuma on keskiasteisesti humaloitu, ja hieman hiilihappoinen, runkokin on keskitäyteläisen puolella, vaikka humalointi meinaa dominoida. Perushyvä melko greippinen APA, jossa humalointi meinaa mennä kitkerän puolelle ja tämä on hieman tasapainoton.

caesar (5584) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Tap @ Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, small sample, served in a tulip glass. Clear yellow to golden color, short head. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus (I was thinking Amarillo or alike), slight grainy and cookie maltiness. Low to medium bitterness, slight cookie sweetness. Good stuff.

Slightly hazy looking orange beer with nice head on top and lots of lacing. Aroma has lots of sweet tropical fruits, grapefruit and some caramel too. Nice and fresh aroma. Taste has fresh bitter grapefruit, citrus and sweeter fruits too. Medium body with medium+ carbonation. Excellent summer pale ale.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Loads of grapefruit and pine, but quite low bitterness. It’s very balanced, and just the right dryness. Very refreshing, and outstanding pale ale with a prominent grapefruit and simcoe pine taste.
