Jack Brand Mosaic Pale Ale
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.
Available in cask, with 330ml bottles and keg to follow in late March 2014.
A light coloured bitter with fine hop and malt combinations giving a refreshing crisp finish.

Hops: Willamette, Chinook and Cascade
This beer is dark strong and well rounded; the richness of such a rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops and natural plum flavouring. Take the opportunity and go for the low hanging fruit, this sumptuous beer really is a plum!
“Hailed by the late beer writer Michael Jackson as ‘one of the great characters of the beer world’, Abbot Ale is brewed for quality of the highest order. Abbot is an irresistible ale with masses of fruit characters, a malty richness and superb hop balance. It is brewed longer to a unique recipe, which makes it the full-flavoured, smooth and mature beer it is today.”
