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.

The beer pours a translucent copper color, the head impressive, the texture frothy, and the color a very light tan, after erosion, the lace left behind a fine coating sheet upon the glass. The light aroma of hops hits your first, and then the sweet malt tones seal off this fresh and crisp nose. Start is malt and sweet and the top middling in feel, the finish cutting in its acidity, the hops apropos to the style, quite dry and a decent drinking beer.

Nice head fluffy white and rich.
Golden / amber body.
Lively hoppy ale with sweet caramel and nut flavor.
A little bitter in the end. But not to bad for this style!

Pours a clear light copper. Decent bubbly white head that retains nicely. Nice citrus and floral tones on the nose. This beer is all about the hops. Citrus/grapefruit, piney, dry. There's a good enough malt backbone, but it is in the background. Refreshing and easy to drink. One of my favorite pale ales. Could throw some of these back.

Not a bad respresentation of a pale. Easily drinkable with a good amount of carbonation and a good head. Nice hoppiness to the level of an american pale.

Pretty nice deep amber, head is persistent, lasts at 1/4-1/2 inch and sticks to the side of the pint glass. Aroma is pretty much of Pac Northwest-smelling hops, though English hops are also used. Medium-bodied mouthfeel, fairly good balance between a settled sweet malt and a fair hop zing. Leans toward the hop side. Flavor is relatively long lasting. Seems balanced and pretty drinkable, lacks major distinction though. This and "Moose Drool" are among the better of the Big Sky brews.
