COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Peter Prescott was born the youngest of 7 boys, son of a fruit picker in an orchard not far from Asheville in 19th century North Carolina. Not only was he last in line when the one daily meal was served, he was also small and weak. Peter soon realized that in order to survive he had to find his calories elsewhere. Fallen mandarins and mangos from the thousands of orchard trees became his salvation – quite literally. Peter calculated that most days 95% of his nutrition came from those fruits. And luckily Peter liked fruits. However, in his puberty things started to change for Peter. While his peers developed acne, Peter also had excrescences growing on his skin. Those were not pimples though, but small branches that would set ripe fruit during the night. Most annoying were the ones that grew out of his ears. Medicinal experts found Peter’s case very interesting, but lost interest as soon as they realized that no money would cover their interest. So Peter continued to wake up with branches sticking out from his body, and every now and then the pattern would be broken with an additional mango taking two days to be ripened out of his belly button. Peter was not a good orchard worker, weak as he was and fighting his daily abnormities. So when P.T. Barnums travelling circus passed through Asheville in 1860, Peter’s dad said a quick goodbye and sold him to Barnum’s side show for as little as 50 dollars. Peter however didn’t really mind and became famous as the Mandarina Man in many US states. Some claim he was even more famous than fellow English freak The Elephant Man. Later Peter married his long time love ‘The bearded lady” but the couple never had any children. Which might also have proven complicated.

Hazy golden-yellow tiny white head. Soft citric aroma, yeah, kinda like mandarin oranges. But vague yeast too, dry and unobtrusive. Soft, light taste, vague tangerine, smooth, fresh. Ok, light beer. Not their best, not their worst.

Very citrussy IPA with clear mandarine notes as the name justifies. For fruity beerlovers this is certainly a joy, for me it's not a beer to drink too often, the fruit overtones dominate the essential hops and other herbs.

Hazey JuicyOptik und florallastige FreshHopNase machen den Start. Die Früchte hinterlassen auch hier schon einen leicht mostigen Eindruck, der allerdings beim Trunk auf die Spitze getrieben wird. SOURTWIST und PowerCrispyness gepaart mit einen kitzelig grünen DryFinish lassen SaftLover aufheulen. Nice Refresher indeed ;)...0,5l Buddel von BEERGIUM.COM. New Englander aus Überzeugung, könnte man sagen :)...
