2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong candy aroma and taste of mango with the flavor not being as strong as the aroma. Not much taste of hops or malt or anything except the fruit. Not a very good beer. LC

Bottle, Zeke’s. Hazy amber with scant white head. Candy aroma is actually more like random Tropical Fruit Flavor than straight-ahead mango. The sweet mango flavor is summarily assaulted by the hops. Or is it the reverse? Regardless, a train wreck has occurred. These flavors do not belong together. A clash of flavors, a cacophony.

I checked out "The Tap Room" and sampled both the Summer Ale and the Tropical Mango... both shared a crisp taste from beginning to end. However, I must say that the Tropical Mango really grew on me--I ended up having it with almost every meal, as it was available at all the good restaurants I ate at while in St John. I brought a case back with me on the airplane to JFK and waited at the bottom of the baggage ramp to catch it as onlookers laughed and enjoyed the moment. My friends love it. Now I’m trying to figure out how to get more. Its got a good body, a great aftertaste, and its the most refreshing beer I’ve ever had.

Cloudy dull amber. Smells like mango extract candy. Tastes bad - the bitterness of the pale ale base really clashes with that mango syrup. Jeez - that does not work at all.

This beer is definitely the best beer I’ve ever tried. A very smooth flavor, with strong undertones of mango, and a not-so-hopyy finish. 5 stars all the way.

Bottle: Poured a hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma is mango fruit. Taste is a mix of mango and watery grain.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden-orange color with a decent intial off-white head. The aroma consists of a whole bunch of mango, guess they weren’t kidding. Flavor follows suit, blast of mango and some peaches up front, slightly sour, and the finish is bland and weak. Where are the hops? This gives me a whole bunch of fruit juice and that’s it. My wife said it tasted like a Coors or Michelob with Mango juice addded... hmmm, I think she might be onto something!

bottle from total wine. Well this beer is very easy to describe. Take a crappy beer and drop a peach jolly rancher in it. There you have it.
