Cloudy, head bursts quickly but is replaced.
Pleasant citrus aroma is overwhelmed by suplhur, very little malt character.
Some pleasant ester and hop flavour, but isnt balanced well with an over carbonated under bodied beer. Blood navel orange taste and aroma (seems over ripe with excess sulphur). Although could lend itself to a few if the sulphur wasnt so evident.

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.

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.
