COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scape Goat is our award-winning Pale Ale. It is a very smooth, refreshing, and well balanced brew. Scape Goat took home the Gold Medal from the 1997 and 1999 North American Brewers’ Association competitions as the best English style Pale Ale brewed west of the Mississippi! Scape Goat is brewed with pale, crystal malts, and Kent Goldings and Crystal Hops.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 12 oz. can from BevMo. Clear, rusty golden colored body with a full off white head. Mild grainy, malt aroma. Bready malt up front with a distinct hop presence that lasts late into the palate. Hop bitterness is moderate with pleasant, fruity citrus notes. Quickly transitions to a dry, easy finish. Flavorful for the low ABV. An excellent pale ale.

ALLOVATE (2591) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2015
At just on cool and into a tulip. A pastel and misted, sunny orange with a steadfast, rocky inch of foam atop that manages a messy lace. Nose has notes of sticky marmalade, pineapple, pine needles, eucalypt and camphor. Wow, first mouthful is of fruit sugars like sucking on a fruit icypole until all that’s left is clear ice. The malt is reminiscent of Anzac biscuits in its gammy, toffee sweetness. Lots of citrus makes it tangy, so it doesn’t creep too far from the aroma. There is little in the way of raw hop flavours though. Nothing piney, herbaceous or resinous to balance out the sugars. It is sticky, not creamy, and has a cloying fruit aftertaste. Probably best served super chilled as it was a little one-sided for me. (12fl.Oz can, BB 21/08/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

AgentAle (1041) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, light roasted malts. Taste is very pale malts with a somewhat basic and undesirable hop profile that is slightly funky. Appearance is a pale gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

12 oz can poured. Had this a few times over the years, never knew I hadn’t rated it. Pours a clear golden color with a lasting head. Love the can by the way. Chained up on all 4. Might be entering another can phase. I love those. Here we have a nice, easy drinking, tasty pale to enjoy regularly after a long day at work. So refreshing. Mild grainy, malt aroma. Flavor matches with an obvious hop presence, that sticks around late into the palate. Gotta love a pale that won a gold medal when I was in early grade school, and it’s still going strong today. I like this stuff.

JohnGalt1 (770) - , Idaho, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Nice white head atop a slightly hazy orange/honey brew.... surprising lacing lasted the entire glass. Smell is something different.... It reminds me of a brewery during a boil... a slightly cooled wort... grainy... sorta heavy pale malts with a significant grassy/earthy hop presence... but the hops are definitely restrained. Tasting the brewery not so much in the flavor.... but is definitely there in the finish... pale malts (English?)... and a little sweetness is balanced by enough bitterness... but the tail end is short but lingering earthy/piney hops is very much appreciated. Palate is spot on for an APA... sorta creamy/minerally finish.

hank37 (167) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2015
Can from Copper and Oak. Pours bright golden with a white head of large bubbles. Citrus and spruce on the nose - quite highly carbed, malty/biscuity background that is well balanced with piney hops. Solid APA - have had worse, good price for Australia too.

Davros (2256) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2015
Pours gold with a white head. Nose shows sweet clean malt and piny, resinous hops. Similar flavours, some bready note though. Reasonable hop bitterness.

stevoj (2811) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Run of the mill APA, very faint hoppy aroma, taste is initial hops, then nothing. Body borders on watery. Might be a good gateway beer for a lager drinker.
