Notes/Commercial Description:
Scape Goat is our award-winning Pale Ale. It is a very smooth brew, refreshing and well-balanced. Scape Goat took home the Gold Medal from the North American Brewers' Association competitions as the best English-style pale ale brewed west of the Mississippi, but only because it is the best. Scape Goat is brewed with pale, crystal malts, and Kent Goldings and Crystal hops.

Reviewed to full phone notes while at Mather Campground, Grand Canyon National Park, AZ. Probably the 4th or 5th can out of the six pack for the review.

A- Can poured to a goblet with a mid range golden body that is mostly clear. A white head forms to above a finger high with a foamy and frothy texture. The cap recedes to a thick ring leaving spotty lace at first with small sheets and webs as well.

S- Citrus hops come in with medium strength and are met by slight pale malt hints as well as yeast bread and light fruit notes. Balanced all around with perhaps a slight edge to the zesty hops.

T- Just enough hops to call this hoppy I would say. They stand out just above the other flavors with notes of orange citrus, grapefruit, floral and slight pine. Fresh cracked pale malts, cereal grains, biscuit, yeast bread and just a tiny bit of fruit esters provide a balance to the hops.

MF- Light to medium bodied for an APA with a crisp, frothy consistency. Carbonation is fairly high and provides a bit of a bite that pushes the hops. Moderately bitter finish.

Definitely reminds me a bit of SNPA but not quite as Cascade citrus driven. A nice balance is struck with hops taking a slight edge.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades super-fast leaving only a trace bit of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is very light overall with just a light level of caramel sweetness and a little bit of a bready and grainy smell. Along with these is a very light grassy smells as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather crisp and bready flavor with a good level of graininess right upfront. Along with these flavors are some flavors of a very light caramel and light fruit flavor of apricot and peach. The fruit flavors grow in flavor as the taste advances sweetening the brew as the taste moves on. Along with the sweeter fruit flavors some light grassy tastes to leave a clean and moderately crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. A slightly higher carbonation level may have been slightly better for creating a greater level of crispness, but even with that side the feel was rather nice for the style and still made for a rather refreshing brew.

Overall – A very easy drinking pale ale, a good one to sip leisurely.
