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 from Cotteridge Wines; clear amber pour with a big fluffy white head, vibrant tropical hop aroma of passion and pine, taste has zesty citrus, pine, mango, well rounded malts, light bitterness and a side note I love the bottle.

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 (5678) - 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.

Unde (541) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2014
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.

simont1 (365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
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.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Draught at the Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland. Cloudy orangey golden colour with a small foamy white head. Fruit punch, mild sourness, fruity sweetness, mild bitterness and some balancing maltiness in the aroma. Amazing! Wow! The hop profile is just right. The flavour is tropical fruits, fruity sweetness, malt and a hint of bitterness. Very very drinkable. The carbonation is very soft. It could be a bit stronger to make this beer super fantastic. Now this is only fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (7627) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange with a lively white head. Pleasant tangerine hop character, just a kiss of caramel in the malts, bitter end. Nice.

In short: a sweet aple ale.
