Light bodied with average carbonation. Very clean finish with straw, pale dry dough. Lovely. Easy drinker. Quite refreshing amid all the high ABV stuff at the fest.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a thin but lasting white head. The nose is very light, but I pick up some grass, lemon and honey. The taste is very fruity, with fresh white grape dominating and a bit of passionfruit coming through. Minimal bitterness. Crisp, clean finish and a light bodied. Pretty simple, but refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ CBC 2013. The pour’s gold with a tiny white head. The aroma’s light honey and soft citrus fruits. Simple. The taste is light bready angel food cake. Lemon zest. Light finish. Soft and easy to drink. Simple but refreshing. I thought this was the best thing Mountain Goat had at the festival.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles, but the head doesn’t lasts for much time, and not much lacing down the glass.
Aroma: A nice collection of hops, sweet malt, tropical fruit and slight citrus.
Taste: Crisp light malt with some bitterness. A little grassy, and quite ’clean’ compared to what the aroma hints at.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Fairly dry to the finish, with a very slight astringency.
Overall: A very easy to drink beer, but nothing special. IMHO, it could probably do with either a tad more flavour hops or a bit more sweetness to balance the astringency.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fra fat på CBC mai-13: en lett og floral øl som sikkert er en super forfriskning i varmen Down Under. Her gjør den meg ingen tjenester. Vanskelig å hevde seg med 4,7% i et landskap av heavy duty stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appears yellow and with a fluffy white head and plenty of sparkle. The aroma is of sunflowers, golden grains and some lemon zest - light and enticing. My impression of the flavour is that it is light and sessionable, so it does what it sets out to do. It is spritzy and floral, light and fluffy. Not a lot for the likers of heavy beers (myself included) but serves its purpose.
