12oz bottle. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Thin, glass lacing white head. Even though it sounds like a catastrophe, the flavor combinations sort of work out. The mint is an interesting offset to the amber malt, and the mango sort of imitates mosaic or other peachy hop tones. I would actually still call this amber ale, as it says on the bottle. OK, unique.

Bottle from a mixer pack. Just a little haze in this golden beer. A fluffy off white head. Aroma is mango and soft malts and is not big. Mango is tasted first with a nice little kicker of mint. It is earthy and becomes herbal. Melon zest bitterness and this is surprisingly dry. wlajwl (7281) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2018
Aroma is mint and tropical fruit/mango. The flavor is tropical fruit, malts, mild mint and a medium sweet finish. bigtaster (1043) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2017
From a bottle into a pint glass. Clear amber colored body, large two finger head. Caramel nose, with mint, lime, a hint of funk. High carbonation, sweet, slightly dry finish, high carbonation, slightly acidic. Long mint finish with a oddly dry mango kind of finish. Like most of what shorts does, it's unique and tasty, but hard to drink a lot of. zoucrew102 (2308) - - NOV 5, 2017
Bottle. Strong mint aroma with notes of mango and a little bit of citrus. Pours clear golden colored with one finger of tan head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet mango and some citrus flavors. Finishes smooth with strong mint flavors. Pretty good, but a lot of mint.

Clear rich deep golden hue under a foamy tight white head. Bright pleasant nose that’s lightly mango fruity with a cool subtle herbal hop crispness. Crisp flavor that’s dry and pale malty and lightly herbal with a nice mango kiss, and a toasted malt graininess. Really cool and crisp, fruity and grainy and lightly herbal and summer-timey. A touch of mint on the finish as it warms. hopscotch (11485) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle... Pours hazy and orange with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a sweet marriage of cotton candy and honey. I’m picking up no mint and no mango. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor reveals a sturdy malt backbone, but there’s plenty of hop bitterness to balance things out. Finishes lightly bitter with some lingering maltiness. No fruit and no mint throughout. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed! Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma and taste are light mint and some fruitiness. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2015
bottle a the dub shared with myself, and myself, hoppy fruit, not bad, but nothing I’d go seek out... Sammy (13121) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
Unique bottle, from Champane Cellars, thanks for saving the Shorts etc. Hops in aroma and taste, with the sweetness from the additions rounding out the beer. Some lace.
