St. John Brewers Tropical Mango Pale Ale

St. John Brewers
Virgin Islands
Brewed at the Shipyard Brewing Company

Grade: D-
ABV: 4.5%
Style: Fruit beer
Serve in: Flute

With a lively appearance and a quickly fading head, this beer resembles ginger-ale more than anything. It has a saccharin-sweet juicy bubblegum aroma, blended with kiwis and mangos. Even if the scent did carry over into the flavor, I don’t think I would be too pumped. There is no hop profile. Very dry and bitter; thin and with a metallic, astringent aftertaste. It’s more like a bland mango-flavored sparkling water than a beer. You’ll be torn between chugging 18 of them without batting an eye or pouring it down the drain.
