Pours virtually see-through with light golden bubbles. The mango aroma hits straight away. Not much malt or hops taste. Bit of sugar. But mango overpowers. Would suit those who favour cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 From a 330ml bottle on 18/2/2014. Pours a clear golden with virtually no head. Has a strong aroma of mango. Has a strong taste of sweet mango and little else. There’s no bitterness evident here at all. Has a light body and lively carbonation. I’m a little torn here - I quite like mangos, so I can’t be too harsh on this. For me, it’s much closer to a soft drink than a beer, and it’s hard to detect any alcohol. It would probably be more interesting if it had a little more dry, bitter character to it. But it’s reasonably refreshing, albeit that one would probably be enough.

DM’s Yep pale and all the rest. Novelty beer that’s sweet and not like mango at all. Tastes like sweet peach essence is added, struggled with one.

(Bottle) Clear pale gold with thin white head. Fruity aroma, which seems more peach, than mango to me! Quite pleasant, if unusual for a beer. Light body with good carbonation. Taste is really quite pleasant, but it seems rather a stretch to call it a beer. The foretaste and mid palate are all fruit and sweetness. The fruit is presumably mango, although again to me it seemed peachy (I have been eating fresh mangoes so perhaps that distorts my expectations). The sweetness seems mostly candy like. it isn’t overwhelming though and is quite pleasant. Only in the finish is there a hint of beer - a malty sweetness appears, followed by a growing bitterness. A refreshing fruity drink - if you want a fruity alcoholic beverage this has a lot going for it, but if you want a beer with a hint of fruitiness maybe not so much.

330ml bottle. A bright gold beer with smallish white head. Nose has strong mango fruit aromas with a light honey malt presence. Taste is not as sweet as the aromas would suggest (thankfully) and it becomes quite drinkable after the initial shandy-like shock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330mL BB 21/5/14 Surprisingly i’m presented a clear golden beer with good firm white head, leaving lace - was totally expecting something resembling mango nectar! Moderate intensity aroma; slightly unripe mango flesh, cereally pilsner malts. Nice creamy carbonation adds extra texture and weight to an otherwise light bodied, dry beer. Light flavours of mango and those grainy pale malts continue on the body. Flavours drop away somewhat abruptly revealing a decidedly dry finish with slightly chalky/metallic bitterness lingering. Pleasant enough and drinkable, but I’d still go as far as to say somewhat gimmicy, especially considering the vast array of hops available that provide a "mango-like" character, and I daresay, more complexity, which this beer tends to lack,

A sweet mango aroma coupled with a delightful mango aftertaste. Matso’s mango beer is a great refreshment on those hot days where you need that lighter, sweeter beer to just make things pleasant. On tap is much preferred to the bottled version, which leaves more to be desired due to its staler, faker mango taste Still reccommended for anyone looking for an easy-to-drink tasty beer
