Notes / Commercial Description:
Mosaic Promise showcases two unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt. The versatility of the hop’s pleasing aroma and flavor characteristics and the traditional barley’s depth of flavor comprise this clean, rich, golden beer. We can brew complex beers with the best of them, but we recognize that there is also beauty in simplicity.

12oz bottle dated 8/17/2014. Poured into a Founders' snifter 9/18/2014. Very excellent label art.

A- Beautiful light yellow-orange body, two finger dense off-white head with good retention time. Leaves lacing all over the glass; and for the most part a thick film remains mostly in the center. [4.25]

S- Juicy mosaic hops! Grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, some resin. A slight bready caramel flavour is clearly there in the background, but for the most part this smells straight up mosaic. Surprising for a pale ale. [4.25]

F- Initial grapefruit flavours allows in a small bit of caramel and honey with a pine and yeast finish. Overall the flavour profile seems to be more of the pine, mineral flavours and yeast rather than the initial juicy citrus and grapefruit hops that the nose promises (pun intended). It's by no means bad, of course. [3.5]

M- Slightly on the thinner side as expected for a 5.5% ABV beer but certainly very easy to drink a couple of. The bitterness is quite nice and pronounced, just wish it was more of a citrus bitterness than a mineral-forward pine bitterness. [3.75]

O- As the name suggests, the nose promises lots of juicy, lusty hoppiness. However, the flavour and mouthfeel don't quite work very well in accentuating the citrus-forward nature of Mosaic. It works alright, but overall not as good as the nose promises. [3.5]

Final score: 3.71
