COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Steam Ale is a crisp, certified organic ale. We incorporate a slap of wheat malt in the grist make-up and ferment it cool. We use Cascade and Citra hops to give it a fresh, zippy finish. Great as the weather warms up.

jackl (5489) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
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.

Machalel (32) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
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.

Holmen1 (3287) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
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.

Jimthechap (1997) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 4, 2013
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.

Mjollnir (391) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, passionfruit, honey, some esters, a little malt and yeast. The aroma promised so much but there’s not a great deal going on in the flavour; fairly subdued, a little wheat and yeast, some esters, low bitterness and sweetness. Light body, soft carbonation and a short finish.
