Pours a bright yellow-gold color with a nice white head. Moderate lacing. Mango/apricot fruit dominates the aroma with a malt backing. Taste is refreshing and makes a great summer beer. Front and mid is apricot as expected. Mouthfeel is disappointing - not enough carbonation or bite. The fruity flavor fades in the finish and transitions to a bland malt with some hop bitterness. Overall a good beer, but could be much better with more carbonation and flavor complexity.

First off I am an avid coffee drinker, but I never like flavored coffee. Thus far, as a novice craft beer drinker, I have never liked a sweet fruit flavored beer. This beer is no exception, almost a drain pour. I'm struggling through it but need a chocolate cheese cake or whipped cream cake to cut it.

As benchmark, I am tasting this vs TERRAPIN TREE HUGGER ALE.

A: Fine yellow, mango flesh color, but head deflates under all that fruit juice (no surprise) 2.5
S: Smell artificial, with nothing left to the underlying beer at all. The worst of bathroom fresheners / cleaning agents. 1.5
T: Not as bad as the smell but below average. Starts as the faux mango smell, a bit of beer flesh, and then the finish might as well be mango soda. 2.25
M: Thin, flat, teeth on edge 2
O: Skip this. 2 (Poor, as it pour this on your compost or flowers - dilute it first)

Gets the honor of my lowest rated beer.

Bottle > Mason Pint

A - Clear light gold in color with a thin layer or fizzy white head.
S - Fruit cocktail and clorox
T - Soapy bitter weird artificial fruit flavor. Atrocious.
M - Dry and acrid.
O - This is garbage and should be drain-poured at every given occasion.

St. John Tropical Mango Ale is a nice fruit ale with a strong mango flavour. Maybe it's the salty air, but I like it!

A: Yellow colour and an excellent 5 mm head that lasts really well. 4.5

S: Nie mango-y aroma. Yum. 4.5

T: Nice mild grainy base with farily strong mango flavours over the top. The finish is clean with some slight bitterness. 4

M: 4

O: 4
