    Brew Info:
  • Brewery: Clown Shoes Beer (Ipswich, Massachusetts)
  • Website:
  • Brew: Mangö American Kölsch
  • Style: Kölsch
  • Serving: pint off the tap at the Yardhouse (San Diego, California)
  • ABV: 6.0%
  • Ingredients: Orange peel and mango
  • Pour: Straw golden yellow with a 1-finger, frothy white head that leaves a nice cap with strong lacing throughout.
  • Nose: The nose is a big fruity blast with more subtle grainy malts and hops.  Mango forward aromas with hints of citrus throughout and hidden aromas of doughy bread, caramel, and grassy hops.
  • Taste: The taste (like the nose) is almost an overwhelming flavor of mangos with lighter citrus notes (orange zest, lemon, and lime), grainy cereal, doughy bread, and earthy hops.
  • Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with good carbonation, the mouthfeel is crisp, juicy, and refreshing with a clean, but fruity finish.
Overall pairing: The Mangö American Kölsch from Clown Shoes is a wonderfully drinkable and refreshing summer brew.  As such, it goes great with the fast, fun, and raunchy rock and roll sensibility of Bang Tango's "From The Hip"!
