Latitude 48 Mosaic.
Mosaic is an exciting hop, but we didn't love it in this formulation. The Mosaic Lat 48 was notable for its fruity, melony, floral aroma and flavor.
"Resiny nose of rubber and pine, and a little melon," said Greg Zannella of Northeast Distributors.
"Smells like a wet cat," said brewer John Watson. "Also over-ripe melon."
"Tastes similar to the Hallertauer version, more malty than hoppy, with a bit more bitterness," Greg said.
"Malty flavor, with some toffee," said Ernie Adamo. "The malt overpowers the hops, you get a little bitterness and a little fruity melon, but it's mostly malt."
"Very floral, flowery, a little lavender," said Andy Schwartz. "Sweet flowery character, with a little melon."
"Like drinking pot-pourri," John Watson commented.
