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.

A: Clear body with a decent white head.

S: Clear pils malts, crisp grain and a little bit of bready sweetness; hops are underlying and a bit pungent, definitely grassy and possibly earthy. Hint of toast.

T: Hint of lemon peel, grassy and earthy again. Grain, maybe faint caramel? Possible toasted malt as well; lower sweetness and lower bitterness levels.

MF: Lighter bodied, moderately bitter.

O: OK. This longneck was from a friends variety pack, and I'm not sure how long those packs sit around? Tastes...not so fresh? This is in the English vein, but you expect more fruity yeast characters, a stronger malt base, and more appropriate hop levels. Meh.

First off, I would NOT call this an English style pale ale. The label has changed, and I get the feeling that this used to be a very different tasting beer.

A: Orangish, translucent golden with a white head.

S: Orange, tangerine, mango in a deliciously citric nose.

T: Not as much mango in the taste, but orange and tangerine are still present with some pine. It's delicious!

M: Medium-light bodied and smoothish.

O: This is a deliciously hoppy pale ale with nice orangey aromas and flavors. Definitely recommended.
