Gyle #6 – Mosaic Pale Ale

I picked up a small bag of hops at one of our club meets, one that I was keen to try, Mosaic. I had heard good things about it, but it really was only a small amount (about 40g) that I wasn’t sure what I could brew to make it shine. It was such a pungent hop that even before I’d opened the bag it started to make the whole house smell lovely. I decided to just use a simple pale malt grist with two hop additions, one first wort and one aroma, split equally.

Even with the small amount of hops that went in to this, it still wanted to leap out of the glass. The aroma was amazing, and I’ve been in love with Mosaic hops ever since. It was also the first brew I had kegged, and it made it extra special to serve such a great tasting beer out at serving temp. Suffice to say it really didn’t last very long!
