3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep amber with a nice finger of creamy looking head. Lovely sweet caramel, toffee and hops notes. Definitely recognise the galaxy in there. Slight funk but pleasing. Sweet malt and toffee carries through in the flavour, along with hops ion the back end. Fairly bitter, with a nice earthy hop character that lingers on the palate. Fresh, clean, and well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
640ml bottle. Pours a hazy chestnut amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Floral and mild citrus hops mix with a touch of honey and some toffee and sourdough malt in the aroma. Lemon hops up front soften into a more delicate floral flavour. Roasty, slightly charry malt in the mid-palate leads into a finish of citrus hops and sourdough toast. This is quite subtle and complex for an amber ale, and a nice beer all round.

Great looking Amber/Red body with minimal carbonation though retains a thin 3mm tan cap. Aromas are floral and fruity with caramel base, very pleasant! Initial taste is bitter then malty sweet then back to bitter, lengthy bitter, going well i,m really enjoying this Amber. Quite creamy and soft with a long hopy tang. Bloody good drop!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In a tulip glass on tap at the Local Taphouse, St Kilda, 20/03/2013 and then in goblet from a bottle from blackheart & sparrows, 23/03/2013. Pours rich amber with a cream head that lasts. Looks crisp and bright in the glass. Aroma is beautiful fruity hops, especially grapefruit with a touch of malt sweetness. Medium bodied with a delightful balance between the hop bitterness and the malt backbone. At first I thought this beer was a little dull, but it’s actually a real gem. Tantalising fruity hop bitterness perfectly balanced with a mild malt sweetness. My favourite Mt Goat so far.l

Aroma is fresh citrus caramel. Pours rosy amber. Flavour is very smooth but lacking a noticeable malt backbone. Very sweet, sessionable amber

640ml botte from Archive Beer Boutique. Caramel and malt aromas abound and the flavour is very good with a nice creamy smooth mouthfeel. I never get sick of drinking Mountain Goat beers.

Clear dark amber with a moderate head. Minimal carbonation. Fruity, wheat aroma. Smoky touches, leaves a bitter after taste and gives a warming sensation - very nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mountain goat. Fancy pants. Nice amber clear looking poor. Nice lacing on the glass. No significant aroma to report, very slight malty sweet if pushed to describe. Flavour is pleasant mild malt with a very small hint of some floral hop. Taste is actually very nice, seems silky and smooth. Overall nice beer but is a little underwhelming. Once again coming off night shift I was looking for something To slap me awake this beverage does the opposite. It’s smooth and not in your face, easily drinkable as if it istucking you into bed again.

Looked and smelt great, but didnt really have the punch i was expecting. In fact it was rather boring. Average.
