COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

TBone (13449) - Pori, - SEP 22, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Bierkompass, BB 04/2014)
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head, lace. Orange-piney aroma, overriped fruits. Light to medium-bodied. Fruity citrus and pine, nice lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Sweetish, more on hop than malt side.

The_Osprey (2757) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Keg at Draft House. Cloudy vibrant orange, opaque, seemingly still, small white head, full lacing. Aroma is earthy spice, wet card, white onion, a touch sour. Body is medium to light, spritzy, rounded, slightly foamy. Taste is earthy, drinking oats, soft tangerine, straw, flowery dry hops, watered down fruits. The oats bring a dry savoury vibe to the citrussy proceedings. Quite nice.

On tap at Tullen GBG. Smells grassy hoppy, lemon grass, coffee. Tastes grassy happy, sour, lemons with a citrus bitter finish.

onceblind (5149) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2015
The pour started clear golden until the bottom yeast came out and it turned a bit cloudy. And even when poured gently, there produced a generous rocky white head. The nose presents a bit grassy and earthy, like a European interpretation on an American Pale ale, with a slight touch of lemon rind and earthy hop oils on a biscuity body. Clean yet tantilising flavor with lemon peel and earthy leafy hoppiness, with some bitterness and earthy noble hops on the taste, with an underlying biscuity sweet pale malt base. Through and through this tastes like a Euro-version of a APA, and that ain’t no bad thing because this is tasty with a certain old world charm.

Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical/floral fruitiness, citrus - some piney hoppyness, Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel and some tropical fruitiness, some citrus - hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some citrus - light piney hoppyness. Dryish APA with nice fruitiness and citrus bitterness in the aroma.

wiwetu (17) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 1, 2015
Barwa: niesamowicie mętna, żółć piwno-kanarkowa; przypomina witbira. Aromaty owocowe, z przewagą grejpfruta. I podobnie w smaku: na start kwaskowate, finisz mocno goryczkowy - jak w grejpfrucie właśnie. Pijalność bardzo duża - gdyby nim w Polsce zastąpić w lecie połowę rodzimego kraftu schodziłby jak świeże bułeczki. Póki co muszę się nacieszyć małym 0,33, które ledwo dotrwało do końca tego opisu. Plusem jest też fantazyjna butelka z rozpuszczoną świecą.

UXO (634) - CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Pours hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose off white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate chunky lacing. (3/5) Nose is mango, caramel malt, tangerine, wet grass, mild oatmeal. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5) Not bad, not great. Decent bitter, but there’s a bit of an odd note that doesn’t really seem to work with the citrus. The oatmeal also seems to dull the citrus hops. Can’t say I’d try it again. (12/20)

neongolden (700) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 14 2015) Pours totally clouded dark gold with a moderate lingering white head and lace. Aroma of mango skin, mandarin, tart citrus juice, wet vegetation, light caramel sweetness. Flavour of white grapefruit, mandarin flesh, kind of tart, thin and citric. Softly bitter and softly sweet pale malt with a little biscuit and grain. Lightish but kind of creamy body with soft carb. Easy to drink but maybe not the freshest because the flavours don’t really pop. Still would try on tap if it shows up fresh at Omnipollos Hatt and reevaluate.

vtafro (4372) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle. Super hazy golden pour with frothy white head. Tropical and citrus fruit hop aromas take over. Citrus and a light sweet malty tone, assuming oatmeal, different but fresh and enjoyable.

nihtila (1301) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
28.5.2014. Very fruity aroma, possible passionfruit. Taste is also fruity, a bit bitter and grapefruit. Good but not really an apa(?).
