The world of the pale ale has expanded to embrace more variation than ever before in the past few years, and the brewers at Uraidla are among those that enjoy exploring the style's every avenue. Cosmic Labyrinth heads towards the upper echelon in terms of both ABV and haze; in fact, you could say it's moved beyond hazy, such is the dense wall of yellow gold it builds in your glass.
It fires off all the lively, juicy hop character you'd expect from such a creation. For me, it's pineapple and passionfruit to the fore, delivered with a creaminess on the nose, while leaving a textural tickle and a fruity perfume as it crosses the palate. It was judged the best of all beers entered in the 2021 Drink Easy awards too.
