Mosaic Pale Ale
“a juicy, yet not aggressively hopped, pale ale brewed with Mosaic hops”
Drinking local is something we firmly believe in here at MKE Beer Review. Fortunately, drinking local in Milwaukee is made easy with the city’s robust craft beer scene. Black Husky, recently relocated from Pembine, WI., is making waves in the Milwaukee craft beer market. Located in Riverwest, this brewery just released the “Dogfather”, a mosaic hopped pale ale.
So what does the mosaic hop bring to a beer?
The mosaic hop has “unmistakable aromatics, which range from tropical fruit and yellow flowers to pine needles,” and is “juicy and fruity, but not at all sweet.”
Dogfather is an excellent representation of this popular hop varietal. The aroma of this beer was bright with grapefruit and hints of pineapple. The taste was just as brilliant as the smell. It is medium-bodied with a touch of bitterness and a lasting floral finish.
Black Husky, and the “Dogfather”, reminds us just how spoiled we are here in Milwaukee.
“Dogfather” is available in 22 ounce bottles and is best enjoyed fresh. Two thumbs up.
