COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered; Occasionally Cask (5.5%)
Originally a cask Autumn seasonal.
Goat’s Leap is a contemporary IPA that stays close to the style’s traditional roots. Full-bodied, strong and with a striking bitter finish, it’s a big beer brimming with hop character. Goat’s Leap is brewed using the best quality Maris Otter and Crystal malts and hopped with a blend of English whole hops.

Lovely gentle, but also full-bodied, fruity, well-hopped bitter. Rich orange, small loose head. Very easy to grink at 5.5%.

DruncanVeasey (7144) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Cask handpull, The Wellington, Brum. Lightly misted brass with a good slick foam. Soft pepper, orange peel-like aroma. Creamy mouthfeel; orange mousse, blackcurrant and almond smoothness; late cherry and toffee. Smooth but with boozy orange liqueur undercurrents. OK.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 10, 2012
This is a phenomenal beer! pours a lovely pale golden body, thin white head, bready aroma but not like any other I have experienced, quite interesting sweet highlight. Quite soft tasting upfront, has a cool sweet caramel like taste, kicks off at the end with a bitter taste however the heartier the sip the more the caramel/toffee highlights come in! Really loving this beer! If your into your ales, I would say this is a must try!

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Hazy golden color, beautiful, with generous head. The aroma unfortunately is metallic, with minestrone vegetables. Dryish mouthfeel, poor malt flavor, again with some metallic feeling and vegetables; correct bitterness.
Flawed.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. Hazy gold with a firm off white head. Aromas are weetabix with woody notes and toffee. Marmalade with tea and mixed spices. Bready yeast with raisins. Flavours are toffee with low pine woodiness and lemon. Some grapefruit bitterness with herbal notes and a spicy finish. Reminded me a little of Goldminer. Pretty good.

Bottle from West Country Ales
Amber...clear....frothy white head..some lacing
Aroma - very light aroma - some spicy hops.....pale malt.....very slight citrus tang...light cereal
Taste - biscuity malt...light spicy hedgerow hops.....light toffee...bit of yeast......cereals
Palate - soft carb.....thin to medium body. Finish...light bitter...slight citrus and cereal biscuit...cleans off palate
Overall - Not a lot of flavour for the abv and not an IPA. Just slightly above average.
