I really like the sound of this - sounds like a great summer pint (though unless we get an Indian summer, it’s probably already too late for this year). Apparently, it’s a limited edition so may not be around for long. No idea why they do that, but given the quality of MJ kits, I’m certainly going to give this a try - would just like to see a review somewhere first.

Oh no. Just when I thought that’s it, let’s try different kits. I’ve done the Mangrove Jacks Bavarian Wheat beer, Pink Grapefruit IPA twice, Juicy Session IPA and Irish Red Ale. I added dry hops today to a Mangrove Jacks Australian Pale Ale and next week I’ll be putting on another Juicy Session IPA. After that I’ll be doing a Festival Razorback IPA.
I agree the Mangrove Jacks kits are fantastic. I’ll have to give this a try. Thanks for the heads up.

It's a pilot batch to see what the appetite for this kind of kit is, I think it will be around for a long time to come though, we've sold 180 of them in the first week of them being available.

Just put this into bottles and my dark farm keg today, it looks and smells amazing even better than the Juicy IPA. Started at 1052 and finished at about 1012 so a very nice 5.2%. I'll be back with a tasting report soon 🍺🍺

I think I'm more excited than you are!

The Mangroves Jack's kits are really good. Festival were my kits of Choice before MJ's came along, and in my opinion the MJ's are far better. Does anyone know of any other kits as good?

I totally agree, Mangrove Jacks kits are fantastic. I’m doing a Festival Razorback IPA next. I have tried the Homebrew Company Bruphoria James Blonde Ale and it was fantastic. I am going to purchase a Bruphoria Wit beer kit next and Muntons Midas Touch which comes highly recommended.

Couldn't resist I put a bottle in the fridge earlier and I've just sampled it. Without doubt the best MJ kit I've done. Beautiful mango aroma, a crisp zesty carbonation on the tongue, a really full mouth feel. I'm more than happy with this and it will be even better in about a week or so. I'm very pleased I've got 20 500ml bottles and two 5 litre kegs of this Amber nectar!!

I've been looking out for your review as I was intrigued to know what this one would be like. MJ Pink Grapefruit IPA and the Juicy Session are probably the two best kits I've done, so to hear this one is at least as good, or even better, is fantastic news. Definitely on my 'to do' list! Thanks for the review.

How much malt extract in the pouch? Is this basically a one can kit that you need to add brewing sugar, DME etc?

I agree - with all the MJ kits I've added either MJ's liquid malt extract (1.2 kg), or light spraymalt. Either works fine and both give great results.
