Steady handed brew. Aroma is nothing new or exciting. Taste is much better with tangy hop resin and faintly sweet malt bill that has a nice linger. I was worried that some onion aromas or flavors might be present, but if anything it’s maybe a little grassy. Finish is pretty bitter (ipa like) and pleasant. As Bubbles would say, "that’s decent, boys!"

Medium body floral rye bready backbone. Sweet malty almost licorice finish. Ruby red as the can states. Interesting and quite tasty sampling. Cheers!

Can with Paul. Pours a murky Amber with soapy off white lacing. Aroma is funky floral hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of funky hop, soap, lemon, blueberries and pine. Nice!

Shared at RBWG. Rye, pine, orange , citrus in nose and taste. Not as juicy and melon-y as some mosaic beers I’ve had. Good bitter balance Still good stuff.

Pine and citrus on the aroma with notes of caramel. Appearance is a clear light brown with a reddish hue and an off white head. In the flavor the hops clash with caramel malts and lead to an odd flavor in the taste of nuts, citrus and pine. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, I dumped the beer. Mosaic hops don't work in a red ale.

12oz can at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a copper Amber with an off white head. Nose is some caramel, some mild rye, pine, and hints of citrus. Flavor is little caramel, mild citrus, mild pine, and some mild tropical fruit. Light to medium with mild mosaic character for the beer.

From the 12oz can. Pours a deep red with a thick off white head. Huge nose of citrus pine melon. Taste is smooth malt with some spiciness, caramel and citrus melon notes. Really unique and tasty.

Nice extra from westmeister. Thanks, West! Deep copper color. Great nose of spicy rye and hops, light garlic, citrus fruit. Full bodied, incredibly smooth, nice rustic quality, spice, orange citrus, light dank finish. Satisfying, smooth, and complex at the same time.
