Notes / Commercial Description:
Mosaic Promise showcases two unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt.

We can brew complex beers with the best of them, but we recognize that there is also beauty in simplicity.

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Reading JHTP Ch36. Very citrusy, lemony and bitter, with grassy notes and a really pleasant zesty feeling. 2 months after bb date and still great.

Founders Mosaic Promise | Founders Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is two fingers thick, with solid lacing, and a hazed golden body.

Smells like mellow/less-pronounced pale ale notes.

I taste a tart, yet juicy element with an extremely refreshing finish. The malt does a knockout job balancing.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll give Founders Mosaic Promise | Founders Brewing Company an overall 4.5.

A foamy off-white froth peaks well above this golden brew.

Aroma consists of light fruits, grain, and faint hops.

Plenty of sweet malt up front along with a hint of orange and lemon and finishes with a wave of herbal, spicy bitterness.

Light, crisp and oh-so easy pure goodness.

Hoppy (mosaic hoppy). Great IPA, nice cloudy color. Not a lot to the smell.
