1 PINT, 8 FL OZ can
Served in a can glass

This beer pours like ginger ale. Similar color. Fleeting head. Highly effervescent. It just looks like ginger ale in my glass.

It smells like mango pop. Super sweet mango aroma.

It tastes like a Mich Ultra with mango flavoring. That is not a compliment.

Thin bodied with an effervescent mouthfeel

This is one, tiny step above a hard seltzer which is like saying horseshit is one, tiny step above cow shit.

Not a fan of flavored beers in general, BUT this one….is amazingly refreshing on a hot summer day. Still has that beer balance with a not overwhelming mango finish. Mango may be the best flavoring for beer…at least go the Iron City brand. A great beer in general.

Iron City got a bad rap when the actually moved out of the city. However they are back, but still having trouble getting tap space in bars. They were ubiquitous in bars before the move. All their beer are great in general.

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
