OK first off, I like mangoes. Salads, smoothies & lassies, salsa, coulis, you name it. But mango beer?? I knew this would be awful but I was drawn to it like a car accident you can’t look away from. don’t ask me why. the body is pale golden and mostly clear, the head is thick foamy white. the aroma is apricots that never sweetened, dried straw/grass, pale malts, and stale tropical fruit lifesavers. flavor is grainy, skunky pale lager malts, dry grassy apricots that were left refridgerated until they lost all good taste. Mangoes never taste this wrong. watery mouthfeel, finish is artificial banana and perfume, mostly dry. drink at your own risk!

It is hard for me to rate a beer this low when I love the tap room on St. John. The beer isn’t bad by any means. It has a crisp taste of fruit, but is a little dry for a fruity beer. This brewery has some very good beers and even though this is the staple, it is just ok for me. However, it tastes better than any of the other beers in the Caribbean and I have been to 10 different islands. Cheers!

12oz bottle 1/29/14 (St. Thomas)-Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of mango, malt, and slight hops. Taste of mango and weirdness. This light bodied brew had a lot of nothing going on but did fill a need in the hot sun.

Gold pour some head. Strong aroma of mango. Tastes strongly of mango essence. Not very sweet: good. Dry for a fruit beer.

Golden pour with a small white head. Aroma bursting with mango and tropical fruit. Smells awesome! The flavor does not follow. Flowers and fake mango....what a mess. Not enjoyable at all. Light body and crap flavor. Drain!

Not good, but drinkable, but I don’t waste beer. Weird body and carbonation to this one. Orange pour, white head. Sweet tropical fruit aroma. Sticky body with some weird fruit extract. Brewed very far away from St. John...

At the stop and go in Puerto Rico. Smells and tastes of fake mangos. Like candy. Some carbonic bite. Not good, but certainly not bad. I definitely wouldn’t seek it out again. But it could certainly be much worse.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of Drewface. Thanks! Pours a hazy bright orange appearance with an off white head. Spritzy, fake mango Kool Aid, tangy, cane sugar aroma. Fairly sweet, cane sugar, fake fruity, mango, orange, bubblegum flavor that finishes actually pretty bitter with some herbal grassy elements. I guess it doesn’t finish like fruit juice, but it sure isn’t that good either. I’d take IC Light Mango over this any day of the week.
