MOSAIC PALE ALE
Review by Rob
Made with, you guessed it, Mosaic hops, this pale blonde has bags of personality with bold mango, peach, lemon and pine flavours and a dry hoppy finish.
Brewed with Pale Ale malt, some Lager malt and a touch of light Cara. This single hop beer is made with Mosaic hops at each of the four stages of the brew process. This imparts bold hop characteristics, including peach, mango, lemon and pine flavours and aromas.
With big fruity flavours and a Mosaic of aromas, it’s a fruity one-hop-wonder.
A 330ml bottle sized. Now I can excuse the small size if the beer was 10%+ but this is a rather frustrating 4.1%.
This bottle has made me decide that the benchmark must be, I dunno, 8%? 4.1% is a joke for a 330ml can of coke size, 330ml is a mouthwash. Utter disgrace for a 4.1% pale ale.
Fruity, absolutely. I’m thinking this is aimed at the yoof of today, hip and trendy bright colours, fruity flavour, similar to an alcopop. Look at me, I’m well ‘ard – I went to the pub and drunk twenty of these last night. Puking up in Anna-May’s Fiat 500 on the way home.
As I’m 24 (ish) I’m too old for this beer. This misses my mark I’m afraid as it’s not what I’m looking for in a beer, my taste buds prefer something a little more mature.
