Central City Brewers + Distillers Hopping Mad Mosaic Hopped Cider Cider at 4.5% ABV (C$6.41 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, packaged on 16-Feb-2017, acquired 23-Feb-2018, reviewed 25-Feb-2018)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale straw with a short fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, apple, stone fruit, pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, light tart, mild bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (4/5)

Not bad, actually. It certainly has all of the Mosaic hop character I was hoping for, with lots of tropical and stone fruit working well with the underlying apple. The sweetness is slightly higher than I prefer, but it’s not excessive. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
