Is it ok to essentially start a review with "well this is the least shitty variation" of this beer? I think its a good summary of the review. Anyways, pours as usual looking nothing like beer, looks more like some tonic water with nothing but alka seltzer and some coloring added. What a weird fizzy creation. Aroma was slightly mango-esque, so it didn't miss the mark by much there.

Taste, the mango character is also there in the taste. But its all downhill after hitting that extract. Still super fizzy. Lacks a malt, yeast or hop aspect of the beer, but hey, this hits that adjunct spot with some sugar added in to cover up the alcohol. Its nowhere near as offputting as the lime one is.

Bought a 25oz can $2.69 Marukai
Strong smell of mangoes
Bright orange color
Light carbonation
Heavy mouthfeel
Very sweet mango taste, alcohol aftertaste
Overall not good as is. It does deliver a mango taste so my ratings reflect that. If you blend it with ice then it become a decent blended drink as the melted ice helps to reduce the sweetness. As is it is more like a juice concentrate. Blend it with ice as I think is intended then you can up the score to a 3.0 as a margarita mix. I definitely would not categorize as beer.

Poured into a tall, cold glass filled with ice. Looks appealing, like mango punch. Tastes like a strong cheapo wine cooler. Reminds me of Cisco, although it's been a long time since I've had one. I'm not a big fan of mango, so I might enjoy the other flavors more.

I'm not giving this a full on review, it's a simple kind of mixed drink that tastes a good deal like Mango with a mild bitter kick to it, it's enjoyable and 8 oz is all you need.

Not a bad tasting cocktail, but I don't consider it a beer. One 8 oz. can of this is plenty.

Using the Begnel formula, the Alcohol Score is 8 oz. x 8.0% = 64, or 1.3 Bud Lights. For the 25 oz. can, the score is 200, or a whopping 4.0 Bud Lights!

I have long loved this site and joined just to review this amazing concoction and try and salvage it from being the hated red-headed stepchild of the beer world. I base my ratings and review on this being a malt beverage, not comparing it to beer standards, because it's not beer (of course, neither is Bud Light, but I digress, another review, another time).

For what this is supposed to be and compared, say, to FourLoko Mango, Mike's Hard Mango, and some brand I can't remember but had jalapeno in it too (also available in a tall, cheap, 25oz can that screams, "Choose me to make bad decisions!"), I think it's hands-down, THE BEST. I LOVE the mango-y-ness of it, I love the smell, I love the biting carbonation. What I don't like is it's a little too sickly, syrupy sweet and it packs a massive BAM in calories, over 200 for an 8oz can!!!! They are addictively drinkable and I find myself sometimes craving them. Of all the Rita's, it's my fav, followed by Cranberry. Mix half Lime/half Mango for a great taste experience. :-)

Clear light orange. White head.
Smell of mangos. Guava. Sugar. Alcohol
Taste is the same as the smell. Very sweet. Feel is high carbonation. Boozy.

Did not like.
