A few months back I was traveling and I tried a Japanese beer of the same flavor, I have since forgotten the name of said beer but I tried this one looking for that same feeling I got when I was on the road.

This pale ale has a very strong, sweet, and perfume(y) taste. I tasted zero hops and all fruit. This was not a problem for my wife but for me it seems more like a carbonated drink than a brew.

Lots of clarity to the citrus looking color. Not much head that is quickly eviscerated. Aroma is cool, plenty of mango, even if synthetic or whatnot. Isn't derived from the hops.

That is apparent in the taste. Becomes almost questionable if this is beer as opposed to a malternative, because there's just no malt aspect to it. I really improved the beer by adding my own hops to it.

Pours a mixture of yellow and orange, lots of clarity going for it, less than 1/2" head. Aroma really hits the spot if you're a mango fan. Its something this beer is actually good at.

Taste is actually really mild and comes with a thin body and mouthfeel. Almost no hopping, tons of carbonation. You could prolly make a rad beer out of this if it was dry hopped to the heavens and some of the residual sweetness was abdicated.
