    My experience of MG stuff is that quality varies considerably.

    In terms of local brewers I have to say that Two Brothers have them beat hands down for persistent quality of beer hitting the taps.

    I wonder if I can make a reverse stout by, say, making a piss weak lager and squirting some black ink into it. :)

    You sure can. Go buy a bottle of Sinimar from one of our fine sponsors. Turns everything black!

    2 Brothers... really?

    I love Mountain Goat beers, but the Steam is my least favourite.

    Love the IPA. Really like the Hightail and the seasonal Surefoot Stout is always a winner.

    You all realise that they contract brew everything that is consumed outside their Richmond brewery. This is why the packaging changed about 18 months ago.

    This is correct, I think rare breeds and kegs of limited release are from Richmond too

    I like this one. A nice quaffer

    Have to say though, It seems a direct copy of Little Creatures 'white rabbit white ale'. Which I possibly like even more. In saying that, it's probably quite a popular style with many others doing the same thing. Definite showcase of wheat malt and I'm suprised to see a total of just 12.5% used. Actually would have picked around 50%

    sorry the 2 beers are COMPLETELY different.

    MG Steam ale is Organic Pils / Wheat using citra, centennial and cascade ( i think ) with Us05

    White Rabbit White Ale is a belgian witbier using coriander, zest and grains of paradise.

    Lol. Lucky I'm not like a beer judge or anything. I'd embarrass my ego quite badly. Hmmm, interesting to find this. It's been a long time since I actually had a white ale and just automatically put the two in the same category soon as I tasted the MG. That's 2x new beers I can brew now!

    Has no one noticed that this beer is actually a CREAM ale and not a STEAM ale??

    From BJCP style Guidelines 2015:

    1C. Cream Ale. Overall Impression: A clean, well-attenuated, flavorful American “lawnmower” beer. Easily drinkable and refreshing, with more character than typical American lagers.

    19B. California Common (i.e. Steam ale) . Overall Impression: A lightly fruity beer with firm, grainy maltiness, interesting toasty and caramel flavors, and showcasing rustic, traditional American hop characteristics
    Style Comparison: Superficially similar to an American Amber Ale


    Mind blown????

    Nah, as soon as I tasted it I knew it wasn't a steam. It fatigues my palate with it's sweetness, can only have two before moving on to something else.

    From memory @Coodgee they called it that becuase it was the first beer on the commercial brewing gear which was heated with steam. Its a excellent refreshing beverage and if placed under bjcp cream ale would be likely.

    I thought it was a little in-joke because it was fermented cool with an ale yeast as opposed to warm with a lager yeast.
    I say WAS because who the fuck knows now.
