From Cannery Brewing Company out of Penticton BC comes their new “Stumbling Goat Dry-Hopped Maibock” part of their Artisan Creations line of beer. The beer pours a golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of grainy malts, sweetness, fruit and some grassy floral notes. The flavour is of fruit, grainy malts, toffee, sweetness and a grassy hop bitterness finish. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 40. The evil looking goat may scare you away but it shouldn’t! This is a well balanced beer with lots of flavour without it being unapproachable like many beer geek beers.
Commercial Description: This strong, dry-hopped maibock is a full-bodied German-style lager. Created with classic German malts and noble hops, it is a malt forward beer, with a surprising hop complexity. The male mountain goat, or “bock” is a symbol of strength and balance. We created this beer to reflect these same qualities. But please take warning, this beer has the drinkability and strength to make even the sturdiest goat stumble.
