Bottle: Poured a bright shiny light orangey color lager with a bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma of cheap mango flavoured syrup with too much sugar. Taste is also dominated by loads of fake syrup notes with some bad corn-like sugar. Body is light with spritzy carbonation. This one is almost closer to a soda then an actual beer.

Poured from a can into a Bitburger stange glass.

Beer pours a very clear light yellow. A four-finger white head erupts in the glass. When it eventually settles down, it leaves almost no lacing behind.

Aroma is of fruit: mango, if I'm not mistaken. No subtlety to it at all.

Flavor is pretty much like the aroma: very sweet carbonated mango drink with close to zero beer character. A tiny hint of husky grains surfaces, but if I were trying to assign percentages, I'd say it's about a 10% flavor component. The rest is fruit.

Mouthfeel is slightly smooth at the start but lacking in the dryness that would help cut all that sweet fruit.

I suppose they hit the target they were aiming at, and in the humid, tropical land of this beer's origin, this might hit the spot. But it doesn't for me here and now.
