3.28/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Format: standard 330mL solid brown bottle, standard Mountain Goat-esque craft label.

Appearance: a pale, lightly hazy yellow with a thin white head that drops to a film. Looks okay.

Aroma: heavy malts with an odd smoky aroma. Some fruits behind - tropical and stone fruits.

Taste: a little awkward here too, but not terribly so. That smoke flavour with malts and not much of the fruits.

Aftertaste: some bitterness on the finish with the smoke fading away. The stone fruits make a bit of a comeback, which is nice.

Mouth feel: this beer is medium in body with a moderate carbonation that brings the flavours forward. Quite refreshing too - a pretty good feel.

Overall: I'm normally a fan of Mountain Goat beers, but have to admit that this one was a bit disappointing. Not awful by any means, just a bit of an awkward flavour profile. I certainly wouldn't recommend it at AU$69 a case.

Poured this at a good temperature with a very fizzy, then scummy head. Aroma was abundant tropical fruit with some yeast and hop. Flavor's a bit more traditionally steam, but not much. The heavy carbonic tang hinders. Body's a tad thin. Finish is like flavor, not very balanced, too long lasting. Never want another. Very minimally similar to a steam beer.

330ml bottle 4.5% ABV bb 29 Jan 2014 Purchased and consumed in NZ in Dec. 2013.

Pale, hazy golden-yellow body with a fine white head, and champagne-like visible carbonation .

Feel: Light and thin body with medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: sweet and fruity with some bready malt in the background.

Flavor: lemony white bread with a touch of spicy hops.

O: A poor imitation of the original Anchor Steam. Not bad but not worth seeking out.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head that fades to good lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus with some malt sweetness and grain.

T: Taste of mild malt sweetness with some fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing.

O: NIce beer that goes down quite easy. Good for a few.

look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles, but the head doesn't lasts for much time, and not much lacing down the glass.

Aroma: A nice collection of hops, sweet malt, tropical fruit and slight citrus.

Taste: Crisp light malt with some bitterness. A little grassy, and quite 'clean' compared to what the aroma hints at.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Fairly dry to the finish, with a very slight astringency.

Overall: A very easy to drink beer, but nothing special. IMHO, it could probably do with either a tad more flavour hops or a bit more sweetness to balance the astringency.

330 ML bottle

A-- Clear straw yellow. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Thin white film with a decent ringed collar. Swirl it a bit and get a two fingered head that quickly fades away to film. Good ring of lacing though.

S-- Fresh grass and malt. Otherwise not much else.

T-- Crisp grass and not much else.

M-- Crisp and lively. Light feel and high carbonation. Grass finish to this.

O-- Good for warmer weather but not a lot to this at all.
