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.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Translucent orange brown. Mid sized head with good retention. Unique aroma containing notes of malt, caramel, tart apple, hops, and cider. This is an extra special pale ale indeed. Mid bodied and quite smooth. Initial taste is a delectably smooth combination of caramel, malt, honey and oatmeal. Finish is slightly tart and hoppy with notes of apple, citrus, and various other dried fruits. Splendid.

CacheManyHose (391) - HONG KONG - FEB 28, 2015
Cloudy straw-orange with fluffy bubbly white head and heavy lacing. Smells of resinous hop, tangerine, peach, sorbet, pith, some butterscotch and lightly spiced malt. Tastes bitter, dry, light spice and lemon. Body is creamy, fine, fizzy dry finish. Aroma and palate manage to be both crisp and creamy. A subtle but complex and very pleasant beer.

HKdIPA (457) - HONG KONG - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home (great bottle - Omnipollo have great designs). Pour is hazy translucent gold some thin fuzzy, Belgian-like head. Aroma is apple juice hoppy with some tropical fruitiness, creamy marshmallow biscuit too. Taste is crisp and bitter, pronounced but not that hoppy. Interestingly rounded by the smoothness of creamy biscuity malt (and oatmeal?). Very fine. Crisp, bitter, but also a bit creamy and smooth. An interesting pale ale, very drinkable but lots going on. Would definitely get again but for ~HK$50/bottle it's not a great deal.
