Omnipollo Mazarin 
Posted: 6 August 2015  Beer Republic 7.5 
Omnipollo Mazarin from Sweden Henok Fentie, Omnipollo co-founder, calls this a thinker's beer.  Mazarin is a thinker's beer if you previously thought Swedish beers suck and wanted to implant new thoughts that they don't.   
Avg price/liter: USD 16.73   ABV %: 5.6  Type: Pale Ale  Sweden 
       


Swedish brewery Omnipollo offers another pale ale for people's tasting pleasure in Mazarin.  Mazarin differs from Omnipollo's Leon in that this is an American Pale Ale style, more like an IPA, and brewed with oatmeal.  They say oatmeal is part of a complete breakfast.  The more avid drinkers will likely substitute Mazarin for their traditional bowl of oatmeal.     

Henok Fentie, Omnipollo co-founder, calls this a thinker's beer.  I don't know what he means by that because he goes on to say that he didn't want to create a beer that was "undecipherably complex."   It should have been called a non-thinker's beer.        

Henok goes on to boast that this beer snatched a gold medal at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival in 2013.  Lesson to learn if you haven't already:  every beer has won a gold medal somewhere.    

Mazarin is a thinker's beer if you previously thought Swedish beers suck and wanted to implant new thoughts that they don't.  In that sense, Mazarin is a very profound thought indeed.
