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.

From a bottle dated 6/16/14 poured into a lager glass.

Clear golden hue with a small white head. Head died to an even layer that lingered and left long lasting lace.

Smell of hops is strong in this one. Sweet grain like corn, somewhat skunky, pine and citrus from the hops.

Flavor is full on hops. Bitter, but with a sweet layer that blends well. Refreshing.

Mouthfeel is medium body, effervescent, smooth. Very drinkable.

Apparently I like Mosaic hops. The smell is a little different, but I like the flavor. That said the beer is a little one dimensional, but delicious. I would drink more but it's hard to find in my area.
