Intense tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, straw, pale grain malts. Clear gold, tiny, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More sweet tropical fruits, juicy macro, more passion fruit and papaya, sweet tangerine, molasses, pale grain malts, caramel, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Nice APA, maybe a touch too sweet in palate. Keg at The Old Coffee House, Soho. RichTheVillan (8110) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017

Keg at The Old Coffee House, Soho. A hazy pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of passionfruit, orange, melon, some biscuity malts, a hint of grass and slight grassy, floral hops. Taste of passionfruit, orange, melon, some grapefruit, slight lemon, a little biscuity malts and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, melony, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A hop forward APA with citrus and fruit flowing through a grassy, slightly herbal, floral hopped beer. A little malt too. Good but not the best single hopped, mosaic beer I’ve had. Theydon_Bois (20452) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017

Taste comprises orange peel, grapefruit, grass, light bread dough, melon, faint pine.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, juicy hop splash in the close.
Decent enough APA. Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Another beer back from the dead. This time on keg dispense at Old Coffee House, so colder thankfully. It pours hazy golden - amber with a thick white head. The aroma is freshly cut grass, herbal, sage, chive, onion, bread, biscuit, stone fruit and sweet lemon. The taste is crisp, bitter, a bit grainy, biscuit malt, cereal, pine needles, grassy, onion, pithy, grapefruit rind and a touch of astringency. Finish if firmly dry and a bit grainy. Medium body and moderate + foamy carbonation. The green onion vibe is a bit off-putting. Pretty so-so stuff from Brodie’s. I had hoped keg was gonna be better than the crazy hot cask ales, but not particularly.

A real hop monster, almost aggressive for Mosaic, not as subtle as some Mosaics, throat was quite dry after four. It ran out after that! Gary (2054) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014

King William IV. Cask. Bright clear gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth with very moderate carbonation. Hops are light but flavoursome. Light skunk and passion fruit. Touch of apricot. Tiny bit of bitterish aniseed. Finishes semi dry with moderate bitterness. Easy drinking!
(Cask at King William IV, Leyton, London, 25 Apr 2013) Pale golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grass, lemon and resin. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, grass, lemon peel and a generous citric, grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Refreshing and tasty with a generous hop character. Nice one. jackl (8296) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2013
Cask @ Old Coffee House. The old bartenders were especially grumpy on this most recent visit! The pour’s slightly hazy gold with a massive pillowy white head. The nose is big pissy straw, lemon lime soda. Plenty of tangy citrus. Some armpit. The taste is more of the came. Notes of tangerine, cantaloupe, citrus fruits. Sherbet. Light pale malts. Nicely aggressive bitter finish. Light body. Fine carbonation. Overall, a winner. This is the best mosaic single hop beer I’ve had yet.
