This beer was a big hit at the BC Wet hop festival (no it isn’t a wet hop), so I figured I’d throw down a review for it despite the fact that I didn’t fall in love like all my friends did. “If Milhouse jumped off a cliff , would you-” Milhouse jumped off a cliff?! I’m there!”Mangos. Manga art… Mango manga art. Was that on purpose? I hope so, otherwise that’s a happy little accident. The Bob Ross of beer labels, in a sense. The LAST Mango? Are we all out? Did they use the last ones to make these beers? How did we let this happen?! Actually, on second thought, I can live without mangos. They’re one of those second-class fruits like plums or nectarines or gay people. I kid. Plums aren’t second class. My regular readers know I’m not all about fruity beers, but I’m not going to let that effect my rating, I assure you. Probably. We’ll see.
The pour is an opaque cantaloupe-orange with no head or lacing, just a thin collar.
The smells are big mangos… I can’t smell past the mango. Smells GOOD, it’s just all mango.
The tastes are mangos (duh), sweet oats, and a raw earthy taste. Super simple, but weirdly unique. I quite like this…. Weird!
The mouthfeel is thin, and really easy-drinking. Good carbonation here, a la lager. Front hit is mango, back end is… mango…
3.5/5 All mango all day. Super simple but still enjoyable. You like mangos? You’ve found your ‘beer’ because this is pretty much nothing but alcoholic mangos in liquid formatting.
