Rockmill Episode 3: Maverick Meets Yuzu

Brewery: Browar Rockmill
Country: Poland
ABV: 4.7%
Style: American Pale Ale

Brewer Description: (from website) We made a small variation on one of our core beers (Maverick). Beer base remained unchanged, instead of fresh lemon juice we used Yuzu juice (0.3%) and we replaced Mosaic hops with Denali hops, which is characterized by strong notes of pineapple.

Intro: A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 14th January 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A nice clear golden copper colour with a one and a half finger fluffy white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Yoghurt sweetness, pineapple, mango, lemon peel with a touch of grapefruit zest and grass.
Taste: Light yoghurt, lactose, caramel malt, pineapple, lemon peel, yuzu and grass. Light sweet beginning and a light bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I preferred the aroma over taste, but it was still interesting to try.
