Following the runaway success of their first can, Summer Ale, Mountain Goat is back for more. This time around, it's not a new beer but the return of an annual release that's been doing the rounds for a few years now. Fancy Pants is the amber ale that they've always said is the beer Hightail would be were there no need to balance the books. What that means is a richer burnt toffee malt body and a cranking up of the Galaxy hops to create a dark copper-coloured beer in which fruitiness ' and a touch of spiciness ' mingles with the aforementioned malt characteristics before wrapping up with a slightly toasty, gently bitter finish. Just the sort of thing you need for the transition into the cooler months.
