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.

Saeglopur (961) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 25, 2014
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Pale yellow, cloudy body, with a big, stable, frothy, white head.
Fresh aroma of grapefruit, apricot, orange, lemon zest, oat, some candy.
Taste follows this pretty much, with some more spices, more bitterness and dryness.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes pretty bitter, dry, zesty, spicy.

Really interesting! Very fresh, bitter fruity, quite dry. Feels a bit Belgian. Drinks very easy. Overall a great, unique Pale Ale, with a lot of character!

mmyohane (75) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Aroma has orange peel, resin and bready malts. Pours hazy gold with small head that leaves some lacing. Taste has nice bitter orange peel flavour and some oats. Light sweetness compensates beautifully. Medium body, average carbonation. Long extremely bitter finish. Overall an excellent beer.

Light carbonation with light oily taste and some bitterness. Very dry in the aftertaste. Already sweetish notes. Very balanced beer

teorn88 (3585) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at CPK, London. It pours a clean golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice pale ale.

Bottle: Hazy gold with a huge, off-white head, cobweb lacing. Aroma is herbal, grassy, light fruit.... Taste is slightly bready, creamy orange malt, a bit of resin and white pepper. Nice spice-resin bitter. Very good.

Grzesiek79 (3451) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Dobre ciekawe polaczenie spora ilosc chmielu plus owsiany slod. Piwo wyraznie gozkie i slodowosc lekko cierpka. Metne srednio ale za to ladna i trwala piana utrzymujaca sie do konca degustacji. Koloru zlotego. Fajny i zabawny lakierowany nadruk swieczki na butelce. W sam raz pasujace na Halloween.

DCLawyer (1798) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
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.

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2014
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.
