Beer Of The Day - Mallinsons Mosaic

One my favourite hops from one of my favourite breweries, what more could I ask for ?

Mosaic is a single hopped beer brewed by the Huddersfield brewery, Mallinsons. It has been brewed before, but has been missing for a little while, leaving us addicts to rely on our bottle supply.

This was rectified this weekend when I found the beer on cask in the Star. It is still just as good this time. It has an aroma full of fresh fruit, and follows this with a taste of citrus and a long bitter finish. It is 4.0% and light coloured. And well worth seeking out (but not at the Star because we ran that barrel off !!)

I've heard Mosaic described as 'Citra on steroids' . I couldn't disagree more. It's an interesting hop but lacks the fire and passion you get in Citra. No grapefruit, no bite, no wow factor. Not bad, not bad at all, but it ain't a patch on Citra.
