4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale goblin green. Aromas of honey and subtle mango...sweet and lightly tropical. Flavor is wonderful. Mild earthy honey and juicy mango. The black pepper is quite subtle (kick it up next batch) but can be picked up just a bit in the finish. On draft at Cigar City yielded a light zippy carbonation. I crushed 4 glasses. Tasty stuff for sure!

Keg at CASK. It pours very pale gold. The nose is sweetish, peppery, dried mango, light florals, melon, honeysuckle and honey. The taste is sweet, light fruity tang, apple, melon, pear, mango and honey with a dry finish. Light-medium body, light carbonation and slightly oily mouth-feel. Quite subtle and quaffable. Pretty tasty.

Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Very light yellow. Aroma is overwhelmingly black pepper, with a bit of slightly overripe papaya. Taste is a simple sweet/sour, with pepper spiciness dominating the finish and aftertaste. Incredibly odd. But tasty.

Keg at Cask P&K. Totally still and clear, just a touch of yellow / green colour under the dim lights here, no head. Aroma is lime, plughole. Body is medium, pretty spritzy. Taste is very sweet. Bubblegum, cherry cola bottle sweets, cheap white wine or Lambrini. Not getting much mango. A sugar lover’s dream.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear, straw golden with just a small amount of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up lots of mango upfront, and that paired well with semi-sweet honey.. floral notes and a fresh hit of black pepper on the back of the nose.. very nice. The flavor found sweet mango and clover honey at the core with more acidic mango, black pepper, and dry oak around.. moderately tart on the finish, mostly carrying through mango and oak. Light-medium bodied with very low carbonation.. dry, well-balanced, and engaging.
