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.

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.
