Poured from a bomber into a perfect pint glass.

Color is cop perish with a wheat hue. Excellent clarity. Sudsy pale white head. 5

Smells nice and fruity with some pineapple and mango. Seems to have a bit of buttered popcorn but maybe I’m crazy. Smells good overall though, just faint, not a bursting aroma. 3.75

I again notice a bit of butteriness, but also pineapple, passionfruit and mango. Segues into something earthier and resinous. Still showing notes of butteriness. Odd or off, I still like the beer. 3.75

Easy-drinker and light enough to be refreshing. Almost no bitterness, light carbonation and again, a bit of a butter feel that coats the mouth a bit. 3.75

Great flavor from the hops, but either from the hops or somewhere in the brew process, I’m getting some Land O’ Lakes.

1 PINT, 6 FL OZ bottle
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours amber in color with golden highlight and a slight haze to it. It is topped with two inches of creamy, beige head that leaves some decent lacing.

It has a sweet floral smell with some citrus. There is a good aromatic balance between the malt and the hops.

It starts out with sweet bread flavor. Then I get some floral flavor with some citrus and a mildly bitter grapefruit finish.

Medium mouthfeel

Just when I was about to write Rhinegeist off they go an make a decent beer. I was very apprehensive about purchasing this beer, but it was not bad. The bombers of pale ales seem to be their wheelhouse.

Poured into a Wicked Weed snifter. Bottom of can says 012417.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Classic Mosaic hop nose with that punch of spicy, citrusy zest.

T- Again, tastes like most of the other single hop Mosaic pale ales I've had before. Good, zippy, fruity hop flavor with a decent malt backbone but a pretty weak finish.

M- Somewhat sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Literally exactly what I expected, which is fine, but I was kind of hoping to be wowed. Either way, a decent beer that makes for a crushable hoppy session.

Foamy head of pretty generous proportions rides an ever so slightly hazy golden beer.

Nose pops grapefruit and perhaps tangerine with something slightly spicy hitting the nose.

Taste confirms tangerine along with grapefruit but mixes in a touch of pine and exits with a touch of dankness.

Medium to light bodied, dry exit and a bit of spiciness on the tongue.

Excellent beer in every fashion.

Canned on 1/24/17. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with a subtle haze; big fluffy white head that falls leaving great bubbly retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are tropical. Hints of pineapple and peach. Some bread and cracker malts. The aromas aren't aggressive, but it smells nice. The flavors basically follow the nose. Tropical fruits are there along with some citrus. Subtle pineapple, peach and mango along with some grapefruit. Lots of fresh grass. Malts do their thing. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's light with moderate carbonation. It's very fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a nice pale ale. Nice aromas and flavors. It borderlines coming off as an IPA, but it still has some pale ale qualities. Enjoyable stuff.

Really good pale ale with lots of grapefruit taste and very good fruit smell. Great head and lacing and good medium body with great carbonation!
