Eight Arch Brewing Co. Mango No. 5 (4.4%)

Pouring like orange paint, thick and creamy and bright, I had high hopes for this beer as it sat in my glass.
You see, this being a beer brewed with mango I was expecting a great big fleshy mango hit, and there are mango flavours in here, they’re just no more powerful than you find when particularly mango-y hops are used.
And so, instead of this being a very good Pale Ale with the added attraction of extra juicy mango, this is just a very good Pale Ale.
And it is a very good Pale Ale.
The malting is soft and creamy and smooth, all caramel pancakes, honey and waffles.
Then there’s a little earthy salty spice kick from the yeast and a slap of fresh green herbal foliage, lemon zest and, yes, mango from the hops.
Though of course that mango might be from the mango, it’s just too difficult to tell.
