Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, hoppy, yeasty, with some mint/mango. The taste is malty, hoppy, yeasty, with some mint/mango. Medium body, ABV hidden nicely. Overall, a tasty brew.

L: Pours a slightly hazy copper yellow color with a small white head that dissipates rather quickly, and leaves a small bit of head on top, with some lacing around the glass.

S: Strong note of mint at first blast, with notes of mango followed by some light crackery malt.

T: The mint is very much at the forefront but is balanced nicely by the sweet mango and a light cracker malt backbone, there is a slightly harsh bitterness from the mint.

F: Light to medium body with higher carbonation.

O: Overall this is a unique and interesting beer, the mint just gives it a little bit too much of a harsh bitterness.

Not the best shorts. A little yeasty. The mint was much more balanced than the mango which tasted artificial.

12 fl. oz. beer
Served in a pint glass

L - It pours a hazy orange/yellow color. It has an inch of off-white head that leaves some lacing.

S - I got the mango right off the bat. The mint came through as it warmed a bit. The is citrus as well. Grapefruit mixes in there.

T - The taste has some mild citrus that builds as I consume. The mango is there. I have to search for the mint. I get hints from time to time.

F - Moderate

O - This is a pretty good beer. The citrus and mango bring a feeling of summer to a arctic winter evening. This would be great to have in the summer. There is just enough citrus to make me want another drink as soon as I swallow.

Light golden bodied ale with lively carbonation. The nose has light citrus and herbal notes. A very interesting blend here - the mint is more of a backend player rather than front and center. Ripe mango and papaya dominates the front end. Easy drinking and refreshing with plenty of bitterness which really comes across in the aftertaste.

Tastes like a lighter pale ale with fruit notes to it. Good beer, just nothing staands out to make it exceptional.

Appearance - The beer was golden in appearance with a bubbly white head. It was a little dark for a blonde, but the extra ingredients will do that.

Smell - The mint covers much of the beer aroma, but it is certainly not like huffing Scope. It is a pleasantly fruity mint aroma.

Taste - My first impression is the mint mixing with the malts. It does not sound like it works, but it actually does. The mango is quite sour and gives a nice balance to the beer. Since many do not know what a fresh mango actually tastes like, this may be confusing to some. The fruit bitterness hangs in the back of the tongue for a few moments before the carbonation sweeps it away. Nice.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is nicely balanced, being pretty spot-on for the style.

Overall - I rather enjoyed this one. It is one of the newer Shorts that I would definitely revisit.
