COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 19: Mosaic Single Hopped Rye Ale. Brewer “Spike” has an affinity towards rye malt, so this comes a no surprise. Freshly harvested from Hop Breeding Company, LLC in Yakima Valley, the hops used in Side Project 19 “Mosaic” came freshly picked from the fields of Perrault Farms, to our brewery, and into your glass. Known as hop HBC 369 before official naming in 2011, Mosaic is the daughter of Simcoe (YCR 14) and a Nugget-derived male. To get the best of all worlds from this new Humulus lupus, we used 100% Mosaic throughout the brewing process to utilize all the flavor and aroma that this world-class hop has to offer.

Bière brune aux reflets cuivrés avec un nez d’agrumes et d’alcool. En bouche, la bière a une belle texture, une amertume plutôt faible et quelques notes de caramel.

Braudog (5581) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a muddy red hue, with a firm, rolling head of tan foam. The aroma hints at a little bit of earthy spice and rich malt. It drinks with a fundamentally sweet, grainy malt base. Only in the very finish across the tongue do I get any acid, very silky and restrained, and definitely earthy. (#5086, 6/30/2013)

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Malt notes blended with piney herbal hop notes. Red amber with an off white foam. Bitter with enough malt to just barely balance. Medium bodied and a touch soapy in texture and flavor in the finish.

Very nice indeed. Pours a dark amber with red highlights bathe head is very foamy lacing the glass. The aroma is quite hoppy with some grass. The flavor has a nice malt sweetness up front with a good deal of hops at the back. Well done, very crisp and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lupulucid (188) - - JUN 26, 2013
Mosaic Side Project #19: Some malt aroma. Hops aren’t particularly prominent. Malt is a bit more evident. There is subtle complexity that is appealing but overall, I’d like more flavor.

Dark reddish-brownish-amber with a cream colored head. Moderate lacing. Aroma of rye bread, caramel, pine, and biscuit. Taste is rye and slightly sweet malt with a mild bitterness. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated.

Ughsmash (7097) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bomber. Poured clear coppery-amber with a short, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted fruits, rye, and pineapple over soft biscuity malts.. juicy and very interesting. The flavor found caramel and biscuity malts at the core with spicy rye, fruit skins, pineapple, and more spice around.. finished spicy and warm, with fresh, tasty hops. Medium-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. nice carbonation..great stuff!

Bottle, thanks homer321! Pours clear reddish amber, small off white head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is caramel, rye, pine, woody. Flavor is about the same, resinous, almost a bit smoky, light sweet, light bitter, bit of spice. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Liking this one

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a one finger fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is moderately hoppy with citrusy and resiny notes and a toasted malt base. There’s a nice light earthy rye undertone throughout along with a touch of caramel sweetness. The flavor shows a nice balance between the main components, the rye and hops are both prominent, but neither dominates. I like that it’s on the drier side, it lets the rye shine a bit more than the average attempt. There is a bit of sweetness on the back end, mixing with some lightly bitter hops. Light to medium bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Nice beer, not among the best of the rye beers, but decent enough.
