Founders Mango Magnifico

This is a 10.0% ABV mango ale with habanero from Founders Brewing of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The beer pours a clear orange and golden in color. There is a tall foamy, white head. The aroma is fruity, mango, toasted grain, no discernible hot pepper. The taste is sweet, fruity, mango, toasted grain, then a wave of pepper heat. The beer drinks very smooth. I had this a few years ago and loved it. This time round it has an overly artificial taste to the fruit, the pepper adds heat, but not flavor, and the base brew is blah. I was really excited for this, but this version is a disappointment.
