look: 1.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: A finger and a half of head on the pour and the ample body carbonation are the good. The bad is everything else, as tiny grain flakes are floating in the brassy body. No head retention and no lacing doesn't help things either.

Smell: Biscuit malt dominates the nose, but it's off. It has a weak lemon citrus note to it that oddly seems like when you squeeze a lemon slice into a glass of water in a restauraunt. It seems to clash with the also weak herbal hop note.

Taste: It's got a mild biscut note that reminds me of sugarless cookies to start. It turns then to a a dry bready taste that reminds me of melba toast and ends with a sandy dusting of hops.

Mouthfeel: It leaves a dry sensation in the mouth that thankfully accents more of the earthy and breadier aspects of the beer. The carbonation seems to be doing this beer a bit of a disservice as it's really accentuating that dryness.

Drinkability: It's a little bit too dry for my liking, and while it's light bodied. It's not crisp like a pilsener and refreshing,, but more crisp like a potatoe chip without the salt or flavour to keep you going at the bag.

Final Thoughts: At first looking at the can, I thought this was a doppelbock. Probably becuase of the goat logo and the long name in the background. I guess that's not really relevant, but I think they should try to work on making their beer a bit more like one, IE killing the dryness and giving more of a malt presence.
