Pours clear, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is fruity with light melon, mango, and orange. Light bodied, slightly sweet with moderate carbonation. Decent showcase of Mosiac. I have had a lot of exposure to Mosiac beers lately and this one does not pop like others. It is easy enough to drink, but still just an ok beer. I will most likely get other pales before this one.

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.

Pretty standard and no frills American style IPA...golden color, a bit bitter on the hops, suggest this one to your lady friend who wants to branch out from Bud Light and get crazy but isn't ready for "the real thing" like this brewer's Truth or Knowledge.

I got a 6pck of this at the beer store around the corner. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had hints of citrus potpourri. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

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.
