Draft at Schouskjelleren in Oslo. Here I finally find a Mosaic single hop beer that I enjoy. Rather than the typically abrasive bitter pine resin and artifically-flavored tropical fruit gum, there’s an abundance of juicy cantaloupe and mango and mandarin orange, though that part of it does turn more to orange marmalade after some time, and some resin begins to creep out as it breathes. Lean body, dry, highly bitter, roughly acidic, almost something I can really get into if only the malt didn’t come across as batter / fried breading.
Fra fat på Cardinaltreff mai-15, etter Espen Lothe og Kinn: klar gylden med fint hvitt skum som varer. God humlearoma med citrus, mango og så lurer vi på om ikke Simcoe-katten har etterlatt seg et lite visittkort. Lett, ganske tørr og smaksrik (de vanlige tropiske frukter, grapefrukt), men den taper seg mot slutten - blir litt kort og vandig. Men jeg griper etter glasset igjen...
