Mountain Goat Three Golden Goats

Mountain Goat (CUB/Asahi)

Published June 3, 2011

What a lovely story this is, the tale of trans-Tasman beery love that saw Melbourne's Goats offer to help those affected by the Christchurch earthquakes by making one of Three Boys' beers and donating all profits to the recovery fund. You can read more about it here or instead save time, head out and drink a pint to do your bit for humanity. The beer was supposed to be an exact match for the Kiwi brewery's golden ale, but in the end features slightly different malts and a different yeast (due to availability issues) but does have the same hops. The end result is a beer to make you think of summer in winter, light and lifted in the mouth in a manner that metaphorically parts the clouds (although funnily enough, it has been pretty sunny since they released it...) and with a suitably tropical kiwi fruit / lychee type aroma from the Nelson Sauvin hops, which give it a more punchy bitterness than one might expect too. A quality quaffer they should bring back in six months time. (Please)
