Smell: A fruity smell that seems to mostly consist of mangos.

Taste: A nice amount of fruit that might be a bit over the top.

Feeling: Very soft.

Overall: An alright beer that I found on the ground unopened.

Pours golden amber , clear and with a good head of cream colored foam that lasts and clings. Nose is plentiful with mango. You can even smell a little sweetness on the nose. The fruit peel and the ripe fruit plus a sugary scent. A cool herbal hop with some spice and pepper. A generous cracker malt. There is also a scent from yeast or maybe it's sulfur. I think that is a very beery smell. Taste is good but the fruit killed this beer. It's too sweet and too heavy. There is no hop bitterness and the malt just sinks into the finish. Lackluster not lively and much too sweet overall.

L - Clear, medium golden hue with a small white head. No carbonation and no lacing.
S - Fruity, like wedges of fruit are in it, leaning toward mango.
T - Well, I guess I'm not a mango-tasting-beer fan.
F - Smooth, light feel to it. Pretty nice.
O - I feel like I'm all over the place in rating this beer. Not a big fan of the taste, so big deal, it's not for me. However, it goes down smooh and easy. It came in a variety pack but I don't think I'll seek it out on its own.

This beer pours a crystal clear golden honey color with a dense, two finger white head. Retention is below average and there is a bit of spotted and chunky lacing left on the glass.

Smell is straight up mango. Mango juice and also an artificial mango flavor. I get a bit of sweetness too, but honestly can't tell if it's from malts or the artificial mango.

Taste is the same, but more mango juice less artificial. There is definitely a malt sweetness in there too, but really no noticeable hope presence.

Feel is too light, but very smooth. Under carbonated as well.

Overall this is a decent beer. I like it better than First Cut from Troegs, but it is probably not sonething I would revisit. I like the fruit additions that are a subtle compliment to the hops, not one like this where the fruit is the star of the show and the hops and other flavors are barely even noticable.

While browsing through the supermarket aisles, this one caught my eye. So I bought a single.
It poured a straw color with an orange hue. A moderate head head retained well, until, halfway it mostly disapates save for a thin film and a tiny bit of lacing.
Predictably, the aroma was dominated by mango juice. However, there was also an orange cola aroma that seemed out of place for a beer.
As with the aroma, there is a sweet mango and citrus flavors that feel soda like and a bit artificial. The body is light, although, the soft carbonation make it feel less crisp, fuller and perhaps less lively. In many ways this feels more like a flavored/fruit beer. However, in the middle phase, a moderate pine hops adds a touch of bitterness and sort of rescues things.Light body with gentle soft carbonation, actually made it feel more on the fuller side of light and not as crisp and lively as I'd like.
I suppose this was not overall what I was looking for in a pale ale. The cola like quality bothered me. Although it wasn't terrible, it wasn't particularly refreshing and I don't see myself seeking it out soon.

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is pale malt, and unripened mango juice. Slightly bitter, moderate carbonation and light bodied. Based off of the name, I was expecting a beer with more of a mango lassi flavor. Taste is more subdued and not as sweet. Makes for a slightly above average ale. Not bad, but nothing I will be rushing out for again.
