Not a bad beer for a hot sunny afternoon. Nice appearance and aroma of mango is interesting. Flavour and taste is more mango, very sweet. Easily drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

Bottle - pours clear yellow with next to no head. Aroma is very sweet mango almost like cordial. Taste is slightly fruity with a bit of malt, the finish is salty? It’s a bit watery but it’s 33 degrees outside and this is quite refreshing.

Truly awful. Tastes like a mix of cheap champagne and a mango wine cooler. Ridiculously overpriced. Avoid!

Smells quite strongly of mango, surprisingly. Though the mango taste is not that strong, not bad, not great. A bit of malt flavour. I could drink a couple on a hot afternoon, quite smooth and refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is some malt with a bit of mango and some yeast. Taste is medium sweet of mango leading to a unimpressive finish. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear gold, moderate carbonation and little head. Strong mango aroma. Sweet and cloying; like a cordial almost. Not great.

Nose is a bit too sweet mango, kind of reminds a bit of soap. Taste is a mix of mediocre beer with surprisingly nice mango touch to it. Overall, it’s kind of weak and does not impress.

330 ML format
Note--- Bottles are made under license by Gage Roads
Straw gold color, little to no head at all. Ample visible carbonation.
Nose is of Mango, Mango and more sweet mango. Very artificial with some sweet bread, and straw.
Taste is overpowering sweet mango. the bottled version uses mango syrup so solves that issue.
Could be drier and not as sweet. After one undrinkable.
Will note that the tap version is FAR better. Far more of the base beer is noticeable and that can have a few as real mangos are used at the brewery. Much cleaner and nicer beer on tap.
Still this is the bottles version we are talking about
