Love this beer!!! It is a great beer from Iron City... Come on it's Soo much better than iron City. It's a fun beer and it's Soo sad that Iron City does a poor job marketing this! I also feel it's very sad that the local places don't carry it and that it is sooooo very hard to get it at PNC Park, Heinz and PPG... Come on it's a freaking local beer, it's good show your support!!!!!

Amber lager, deeper color than a light beer. Fruit straight away, mango definitely. Sweet to start the slow to sour. Carbonated but then quickly to a traditional light beer. Overall a yummy summer beer, will keep on hand for hot days.

Went down as smooth as butter, very tasty as well. Yum! Could be a little sweeter. Tastes like flavoured water. Mango very fresh. Pretty ic look, tastes fire. It would have a better rating if they made shirts for it, I’ll give you guys a 5 if you send me a shirt

Poured from a clear 12 oz. bottle. Has a pale straw color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sweet mango. Taste is mango, some grains, sweet, but not as much as the aroma would have suggested. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall this is one of the better beers I have had both from this style and this brewery.

Pale gold color with zero head. Lots of clarity.

Aroma is of moldy broccoli, stewed beets, and mango puree.

The initial/base flavor is really awful, like used chewing tobacco, but it's entirely grainy. Then a nice mango flavor comes in - whether it's artificial or real, I guess it doesn't matter, because it takes over the nasty flavor so it's a welcome arrival. The finish is of mango/grapefruit lozenge. A general rotten flavor sustains throughout the profile.

Feel is nonexistent. Just very thin, empty. Clean though. Nice carbonation. Light chalkiness.

Overall, much less impressive than the Berry flavor. I didn't like this one at all.

Pittsburgh Brewing Co. "I.C. Light Mango"
12 fl. oz. clear glass bottle. Ink Jet packaging information is worn and illegible.
$2 @ Weis, Conshohocken, PA

The label for Pittsburgh Brewing Co.'s I.C. Light mango is basically the recipe: it's I.C. Light with "NATURAL FLAVORS AND ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS" added. That sound a little bit harsh, but it actually gives it pleasant, and surprisingly realistic mango flavor. The only surprise is that it's also lightly skunked ~ and I'm assuming it's only lightly skunked because there aren't that many hops in there to begin with. Still, it doesn't come across as "sweet", even with the additional sweeteners. It's an interesting and enjoyable light beer that would be perfect for summer, and at just 3.8% ABV you could drink a few if you wanted to. A very good entry into the fruited light beer category.

My senior manager brought a 4pck from PA. It was 95F with high humidity today with real feel being 103F.....this tasted awesome. It poured a golden clear with initial white head that eventually dissapated leaving no lace. The scent was mango. The taste was light beer with mango flavoring....bordering a shandy. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's decent and great on warmer days

Drank the pale straw liquid straight out of the clear bottle. Even through the small opening, I could smell the essence of mango. This offering also tastes like mango but it also borders on being soda with some alcohol mixed into it.

I really cant say anything positive about this beer, except that its a beer that I crave once and awhile in the hot humid PA summers. Good beer to drink if someone else has bought it.

(Served in a strange)

A- 3 This beer pours a crystal clear hue of straw yellow with a pale white head of big bubbles that is soon gone but supported by a racing carbonation.

S- 3 The dry aroma of mango jolly ranchers is all the comes through although it remains soft.

T- 3 The light dry mango flavor is ripe with a soft dry candy and powdery flavor in the finish.

M- 2.5 The medium mouthfeel has a spicy soda pop fizz that cuts any flavor and cleans the finish.

O- 2.5 The soft mango note is nice but that is all there is and it is more like soda pop that beer.
