Cask at C’Est What Spring Festival, 2010. Pours a slightly hazy orange with no head. Mild aroma of light hops but the mango feels like a thrown in addition rather than a thought out addition. The aroma is better than the taste. Light and slightly floral hops, some citrus and a moderate bitter finish. Average. I hate to say it but I think that sometimes Ken just chucks stuff into the mix of a pre-existing beer and tries to call it something new. Not so much here. mabel (9245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2010
[2883-20100528] Cask. Grain malt and generic fruit aroma has a hint of toothpaste. Clear, medium orange brown body with quick white bubbles. Fruity English profile hops flavour has a little grass and hints of mango throughout. Medium body is under-carbonated as a cask. Good, drinkable.

Cask at C’Est What Spring Festival, 2010. Pours a slightly hazy orange with no head. Mild aroma of light hops, mango and other fruit -- smells nice. Flavour’s a touch buttery along with a good amount of mango, some light floral hops, citrus fruit and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good.

Cask, at C’Est What Spring Festival, May 29, 2010. Slightly hazy gold pour with a minimal white frothy head. Aroma is ... mango ... slightly floral and a wee bit of bitterness, and a juicy, sort of citrusy malt body that seemed a bit tart. Taste - again, mango - with pungent floral bitterness; simple but well-balanced (not too sweet or fruity, the mango doesn’t overpower). Average body, sticky mouthfeel, a tad flat, and enough pungent floral bitterness to it that it leaves via a decently long slightly dry & astringent finsh. Liked it, probably wouldn’t drink pints of it. Spab (4002) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2010
Cask at C’est What 2010 Spring Festival. Pours a hazy orangeish brown with virtually no head. Mild fruity, mango aroma and some light bread. Flavour is fruity, mostly mango with slight bitterness in finish. Interesting.

Appearance: slight haze on amber base , light rocky top.
Aroma: citric , fruity aromas with Alphonso like mango aromas.6+
Flavour/Body/Palate: mid bodied , tea like bases , softer clean ale. Light substance of mango flavor. Subtle and nice.
On cask at C’est What Spring Festival. Fruity aroma, hard to avoid if you are using mango. Cloudy with lots of white head and some lace. Somehwat light mouthfeel, some mango taste but not all that drinkable. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2010
2010-05-28. Orange amber body, headless. Sweet fruity aroma, mango, fruity yeast esters. Flavour is similar with modest mango throughout, very light bitterness and malt. The mango presents forward. Average plus palate is nice but nearly flat. Okay. A touch more carbonation would have livened things up, and mango is not my favorite fruit. An enjoyable experiment but I prefer the pale ale straight up. Cask at C’est What, Toronto
