After having brewed a Mango IPA and a Mango Belgian ale, here they are with a Mango Pale Ale. I don’t eat a ton of mango, but my friend (fellow Ratebeerian Jazz88) does and he assured me that this is really mango-ey. I could see that but it wasn’t a lively type of fruitiness (like a lemon) and what was really gnawing at me was the long, pronounced astringent finish. I didn’t enjoy that at all and, honestly, it was a bit difficult for me to get to the bottle of the glass. The palate was frothy and soft, at least. On tap at brewpub July 3rd, 2010.
