750ml backstage release! Served into a snifter. Founders backstage beers are my favorite to get my hands on. Pours a very light crispy body capped by a fluffy white head that disappears rather fast. The nose brings notes of light tropical fruit, subtle malt flavor and some spicy peppers. This is very inviting.

The taste absolutely delivers with a lemony mango start and a hot but not overwhelming finish. The chili's certainly benefit this beer's finish. The hotness lingers and leaves you wanting more.

Mouthfeel is light and it's easy drinking. I can't detect any alcohol. Execution is a solid A on this beer, far better than Doom. Better when it's cold as the heat is more present. This would go good with some chicken breast =)

Golden orange appearance that has a thick head when poured aggressively, but dissipates leaving a thin layer. Nice and bubbly, well carbonated. Nose is sugary and sweet, almost like a mead. Taste is thick mangoes with a spicy kick in the ass at the end that lingers and builds with each sip. Alcohol seems masked beneath the habanero heat. Thick and juicy mouthfeel. Overall, great stuff, and I'm glad I got two bottles at the release. Will probably get more if I'm able to find it.

750 ml bottle poured into a snifter.
10% ABV,

A - Tiny carbonation bubbles lazily rise through the deep golden-colored beer to it' dense off-white head. The lasting foam lathers dots of lace onto the snifter.

S - Mango Magnifico smells like summer in a glass from it's ripe mango aroma down to the smooth and sweet pilsner malts. A faint suggestion of floral hops dances in on the back end while the habanero and alcohol level remain mysteriously absent until I go in for my first sip when the heat becomes evident.

T - Smooth malt undertones are happy to play second fiddle to the lush and delectable mango fruit flavor, which tastes gloriously all-natural. Habanero punctuates the finish with a nice level of spicy heat.

M - Mango and malt sweetness and combine for a really smooth medium body that has an exceptional level of habanero heat which lingers on the tongue briefly before fading out quietly with lip-smacking dryness.

O - Founders has done it again! Mango Magnifico brilliantly combines ripe, juicy mangoes with a smooth malt backing and lingering habanero heat for an exceptional and complex beer that begs to be both sipped and reflected upon an paired with your favorite cuisine!
