Nectarous rich malts play host to the famously complex Simcoe and Mosaic hops in this Amber Ale. With warm stone fruit, citrus and distinctly piney flavours, there’s a lot to enjoy.

The malt bill for this beer consists mostly of a pale malt called Maris Otter, regarded as one of the finest brewing malts in the world. This is set off with generous quantities of Munich and Melanoiden malts, which add a lovely warm sweetness, intensify the maltiness of the beer and lend that deep reddish hue.
Our Malt comes from Warminster Maltings, a traditional Victorian floor malt house just down the road in Wiltshire. They produce the finest malts available and are a thoroughly nice bunch.
The hops in this beer are hops very close to our heart. Simcoe has been a long standing favourite at Wiper and True for quite some time, due to it’s gorgeous piney, plummy and citrus like characteristics.
We then took a punt on the new kid on the block - Mosaic. Mosaic is the daughter of Simcoe (with a hop called Nugget as a father) and is fast becoming revered by craft brewers in the States. It’s called Mosaic because of it’s multitude of flavours and aromas, all combining to create a wonderful, big picture. It’s known for citrus, floral notes, pine, earthiness, tropical fruits... the lot!

Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Copper coloured with next to no head and slight carbonation. Big, pine hop and citrus fruit aroma with a slightly herbal edge. Flavour had more tangerine fruit, some apricots, and crisp, biscuity malts. Finish was dryish with some resin. Excellent.

Batch 08 best before 14.06.16. Smell is lovely, soft malts, sweet and hops. Taste is better, sweet and very low bitternes with almost no carbonation. I like the style of Wiper and True beers, almost flat beers with great character. Pleasing stuff

500ml bottle. appearance was sort of down to my terrible pouring! clear amber with no head but loads of sediment and bits floating around so i had to wait a while for it to settle. aroma is tart hops and sharp fruit. sort of smells like tree sap too. taste is also quite tart. massive amounts of hops and a smooth quite yeasty finish.

Bottle courtesy of Peter Fowler, Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxon, (cheers Peter!) consumed in Frank (camper) at Bell Inn campsite, Purton, Friday 4th July 2014 We are sat in candlelight in Frank so tricky to be exact on colour but it sort of looks amber and its called amber so thats good enuff’ for moi. Another belter of a beer, citrus and pine intermingle, its bittersweet and a furryness is left across the tongue, really lovely. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0
