look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On tap at the Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY.

Pours a bright yellow/orange-ish color, with an off-white 2 inch head, and some good lacing.

Smells include earthy hops, soap, orange, and lemon.

There's a weird dirty taste to this I don't love. Slightly soapy, grassy, with some underlying citrus and lemon flavors. I think the hop flavor might have been a little faded at this point, as the citrus hop flavors weren't all that bright. Sweet malt flavors.

Light to medium body, well carbonated, not all that drinkable due to reasons stated above.

Fatamorgana is a game changer, this one's a bit disappointing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Yeast sediment clouded body; golden yellow in color; thick, creamy white head. Deep, malty aroma with a citrus/melon combo hop aroma. Warm grain flavors; toasty; biscuit; bold hop bitterness. Medium bodied; smooth with a slight carbonation tickle; crisp and dry.

A thirst quenching, well-balanced, hop-forward ale. Malt grains get their due, too, providing a rounded, lightly roasted grain character. Nicely done...

330ml bottle. The only reference I can find for "Mazarin" is an album by Swedish pop star Per Gessle, he of 1980s Roxette fame on this side of the pond, which makes sense for this brewery, I suppose. Still don't grok the melting wax candle imagery on the label though.

This beer pours a clear, medium golden amber hue, with a rising tower of puffy, thinly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some random swaths of chunky, fuzzy patchy lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away - I can more or less say that it's got the look.

It smells of fruity citrus hops up front - orange, grapefruit, and pineapple, predominately - a husky mustiness striping all, a softly honeyed caramel malt, and further earthy, floral hops. The taste is more muddled, slightly musty tropical and domestic citrus fruit, mildly grainy caramel malt, a bit of candied honeysuckle, and additional floral, sort of spicy hops rounding things out.

The bubbles are a bit peppy at first, but settle to a middling hum anon, the body medium-light in weight, and workaday smooth, the local hops not up for that particular fight. It finishes off-dry, the pithy citrus fruitiness and muted malt keeping the bitter and musty notes well at bay.

A better than average effort for these Euro upstarts, in trying to emulate an American ideal. Fruity, floral, and just bitter enough to keep me interested, and likewise out of IPA range. Hardly a joyride in the manner of some their overly apish continental peers, but agreeable in its good-enough accuracy, in the 'hey, this toilet flushing mechanism is weird, but at least it still works' sort of sense.

Enjoyed this brew out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper hue with a huge white head that lasts forever and ends in a solid lace leaving a partial trail down the side of the glass.

S: Hoppy tart aroma with a pleasant musky smell.

T: Tart and hoppy of front followed by a decent malt middle and finished on the dry side of hoppy.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Nice brew - I would drink this again.
