Hazed tanned leather with a solid fine sheet of light tan foam. Smells like mangoes, light malt, some bits of bubble gum, and more mango. Although pretty one dimensional, the fruity character of the nose is really nice. Flavor follows through a bit more malt balanced with some light bitterness, hints of wood and still plenty of fruity sweet mango with a touch of grapefruit pith. Medium on full bodied for the style with a light, fine carbonation and a wet finish. I bet this hits the spot on a hot southern day.
