Poured from a 12 oz can into a clear pint glass. It looks a thick, hazy yellow. Slight white lacing on the top. I'll be honest, it smells a little like fruit loops. Very sweet smell. The smell is definitely mango lime, but the taste is lime first and mango second. It doesn't taste any sweeter than the sweetest lime you've ever had. It's a fine lager, but I don't get any pilsner flavors. It finishes very dry, which I like for a fruitier beer. The feel is excellent. It has the perfect, medium/high carbonation for the style. The mouth feel matches well to how it pours. This is a great summer beer I would definitely seek out again.

Uinta Mango Lime Pilsner has a thick, fizzy, white head, minimal glass lacing, and a hazy, gold-lemon yellow, bubbly appearance. Aroma is of citrus rind and white bread crust. Taste is of acidic citrus, white bread crust, and a tap water undertaste. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Uinta Mango Lime Pilsner finishes drying.

White head. Straw yellow.

Crisp, clean, refreshing. Way more lime than mango. Pilsner, bready malts but not very authentic in terms of a German style. Fun easy drinking summer beer.

This pilsner definitely displays the fruity mango and lime flavors that you'd expect but especially the latter is very artificial-tasting a somewhat reminds of detergent. Not an easy beer to drink as the aromas are not negligible

The mild esters and floral hop nature that's common to traditionally made pilsners lean toward apple and citrus. Pushing that fruity fare into a more straight forward taste leads the brewers at Uinta to add gentle additions of both mango and lime to a well made pilsner for a refreshing, light but characterful session.

Mango Lime Pilsner pours innocently enough with a golden straw color and the haze that's normally associated with kellerbier. Mango and lime stand out immediately to the nose with those gentle lemon, grassy, peppery and floral nuances playing a supportive aromatic role. Light and bready crispness greets the tongue with fresh baking bread, honeysuckle and a hint of simple syrup.

A quick transition to dryness occurs on the middle palate as the lager quickly sheds its scant sweetness and the juicy taste of tropical and citrus additions provide a mild sangria character on the drying beer. Moderate hops bring a spice of lemongrass, lemon pepper, hay and a pleasant parsley-like peppery grassiness that balance the fruit and offset any remaining malt sugars.

Medium light on the palate, the fruit flavors keep the beer seemingly richer on the late palate because of its strong linger into finish and aftertaste. This well made pilsner is a great choice for those who crave the fruitiness of fruit punch but want a drier, less sweet, and lighter version without giving up taste.

A mango blast. . . In my face. Everything great in the lime pilsner plus some.

Taste rating in words: It's a glorious fruit Dodge ball game.

Excellent. Pours a very pale yellow. Strong lime smell. I expected this to be underwhelming but I was mistaken. Smooth pilsner with strong lime and a slight sweet mango finish. Good balance. Very refreshing. Cheers!

This beer pours a slightly chill hazed yellow with minimal head. The aroma is really fresh and bright, with under ripe mango and lime candy. The flavor is light and beautiful, with just a nice hint of mango and lime juice and peel, with touch of cracker malts. The mouthfeel is light and springy, with very tight, small bubble carbonation. Overall this is a really excellent flavored beer - the base beer in unexceptional, but the flavors are done so skillfully, with such delicacy that the whole is utterly fun.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that quickly settled down, leaving just a few specks of bubbles on the surface and a minuscule ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mangos and limes are present in the smell.
T: The taste initially had lots of flavors of limes but after it warmed up a bit hints of mangos started to become noticeable. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer quite thirst-quenching and refreshing. I really liked the aromas and flavors of limes and the mango added a bit of complexity.

12 ounce can into lager glass, best before 9/6/2018. Pours fairly hazy pale golden straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a minimal spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of lightly tart/tangy mango, key lime, melon, lemon, citrus zest, cracker, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of mango, lime, and light-moderate pale malt/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart/tangy mango, melon, key lime, lemon, citrus zest, cracker, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness; and light fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of mango, melon, key lime, lemon, citrus zest, cracker, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of mango, lime, and light-moderate pale malt/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and fruit tartness balance; with zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Moderate increasing dryness from bitter/tartness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a very good fruited German pilsener style. All around nice robustness and balance of mango, lime, and light-moderate pale malt/earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Clean pils malts, with balanced fruit vibrancy and noble hops. A very enjoyable offering, and well made base style example.
