A 330ml can with a BB of Sept 2018. Purchased a while back from Morrisons. Described on the label as a mango pale ale.

A: Poured into a tulip. Can-conditioned and pretty lively. A hazy amber hue with fine suspended sediment and plentiful carbonation. Produces a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a moment or two before reducing to a persistent surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of earthy, resinous hops with hints of pine, weed, pepper corns, herbs, leafiness, citrus peel, hay, ale yeast and pale malt. Mango not particularly obvious. Decent but unusual aromatic profile.

T: Tastes of spicy, leafy hops with notes of pepper, pine resin, weed, herbs, hay/leaves, vague citrus, mild fruitiness, earthy yeast and pale malt. Mango not much in evidence. Quite dry, followed by a delicate bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and decent body. Mildly astringent. Aftertaste of spicy hops, pepper, pine, weed, hay, earthy yeast and pale malt.

O: A reasonable pale ale but nothing special. And the mango seems to be well hidden. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are hoppy and spicy with a leafy character. Body is OK. Drinkable but maybe better when fresh. No need to hunt it down.

Can. Hazy orange colour. Thin wispy head.
Full on mango smell with tangerine.
Fruity taste - the mango is diminished. Malt is apparent. Initial sweetness is dispelled by a bitter finish.
Medium body. Strong carbonation.

Pours clear golden into a glass. White head is small and frothy.

Aroma of sweet mangoes, papaya, passionfruit and sharon fruit. Very nectary.

The flavour is very floral and sweet full of mango, more nectar, orange, stone fruits, and tropicana, before moving into malts and ending on oily hop bitterness.

Feel is light-medium and oily with good carbonation.

Very nice and drinkable. It's sweet and fruity but not overly so to degrade the flavour of the beer. Would drink again.

330ml Can from Tesco (£1.85):
Fresh and lively the plenty of tropical fruits and an oily hop bitterness, this one was as promised with the mango mentioned on the can coming through quite early with the taste but thankfully not overpowering or dominating proceedings, whilst the beer remained an easy one to drink throughout. Towards the end some of the expected sweet malts and subtle touches of bitterness started to come through as well and the hops started to subside but this one definitely a beer that I enjoyed and one that I'll be having again soon.
