Jack Brand Mosaic Pale Ale - out now!

Adnams Jack Brand MosaicAvailable in cask, keg , 330ml bottles and mini cask, Jack Brand Mosaic Pale Ale is brewed using a new American hop*. The Mosaic hop variety was released in 2012 after a successful crossing of two hop varieties called Simcoe and Nugget which captured the best of these varieties to provide clean bitterness and outstanding flavours and aromas. Mosaic hops are similar to Citra, but has an even more intense flavour. Fergus and the team added the Mosiac hops at three stages during the boil, and once again during fermentation. This has imparted bold hop characters of peach, mango, lemon and pine. All these lovely flavours are complemented by pale ale malt, lager malt and a touch of light cara malt to gently balance the beer whilst allowing the fruity hop flavours to shine through. The result is a blonde beer with a dry, hoppy finish and bags of Mosaic personality. Fergus comments: "Mosaic is a great new hop variety, it brings together elements of some of my favourite hops like Galaxy, Citra and Nelson Sauvin. This beer is really about showcasing the hop and letting the flavours shine. Enjoy." You can taste Jack Brand Mosaic at Craft Beer Rising which takes place at The Old Truman Brewery in East London on 21st- 23rd February. It is available in cask and keg in selected outlets now, and five litre mini casks and 330ml bottles are available to purchase online and in store. *If you're a fan of American hops, you'll love this 'Variety Manual' by the Hop Growers of America.
