Mountain Goat Beer – Organic Steam Ale (AUS)

‘No need to panic, it’s all organic’ ….. that doesn’t mean you can throw the skins out of the window!

Mountain Goat Beer began in ‘Dave’s backyard’ but now operates out of Richmond in Melbourne. I doubt there’s many mountains there but there might be the odd goat …. or at least goatee. I first tried their Organic Steam Ale at my good friend’s wedding, at the Jack Rabbit Winery in Bellarine.  It was just what I needed after an afternoon’s shooting ….. no pressure photographing your friend’s wedding I can assure you.

As steam ale is basically a lager, and this is a pretty good one. It’s a pale straw in colour and I smell hints of lemon sherbert on the nose. It’s clean, crisp and refreshing …. I had another one this evening after mowing the lawn and it went down a treat ….. restoring my faith in lager. The Sun Herald called it ‘an organic triumph’ …… sounds like a motorbike that runs on hemp-seed oil.
