I am not a huge purchaser of bottled beers, but a) I like puns and b) I have a soft spot for this brewery's beers since they tend to be reasonable in both price and taste. I had a friend in Oxnard, CA in the mid-1990's who (kind of) referred to herself this way, making it even more appealing.
Is the goat in drag on the label? First, it is wearing bighorn sheep (ram)'s horns, plus even if it were a goat, the females do not sport horns. From the bottle: "Craft Brewed in Wisconsin".
I went with a heavy hand on my pour and although it was not really my intent, I got a pseudo-cascade all the same. Settling, I was left with a massive there-plus fingers of dense, creamy, tawny head with great retention. Color was a deep-amber, bordering on copper (SRM = > 17, < 22) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was rich and malty, kind of caramel, very sweet. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium and the taste was very much like liquid caramel! Wow. I usually disdain sweet beers, but such the style for this beer, plus it was not cloying. That is to say, there was the inherent sweetness, but it did not linger, like a more syrupy beer might. Instead, the finish evinced an alcohol heat which rendered it semi-dry as a whole. Not bad, and at the price point, worth at least a try.
