Mountain Goat Beer Pty. LtdThe Hightail Ale is a traditional English style 'real ale'. It's deep amber in colour with a rich malt body and floral hop aroma. Alcohol content comes in at 4.5% (1.2 standard drinks per bottle). We handcraft our ales with the utmost care and avoid all preservatives, additives and pasteurisation.
"Nose offers a mixture of toffee and fruit aromas with a lovely aromatic lift. Complex palate offers burnt phenolic characters that are complemented by fresh slightly sweet flavours."Winestate Magazine, Dec 2000.
"..the Hightail Ale has plenty of grassy and floral tones to tantalise the fussiest olfactory system..a drinking delight."The Melbourne Palate, Oct 99.
"..this ale has a robust, fruity flavour, well rounded and lively on the palate."The Age, June 98.
"..this dark yet slightly fruity Victorian beer, produced by a tiny microbrewery, kicks like a mountain goat and is probably my favourite Australian ale."Pints Of View Magazine (CAMRA), Scotland, Summer 99.

The second beer released from Mountain Goat's Richmond microbrewery is an Australian style, full strength Pale Ale.
It has golden-straw colourings, floral honey aromas and spicy hop bitterness. An imported American Ale yeast imparts a soft, dry fruitiness. Unlike the Hightail Ale, this beer is best enjoyed ice cold.
Drink the Pale with spicy dishes, they release the grassy hop characters and highlight the clean malt finish.
"..a lovely nose of honey, citrus and herbs. On the palate, the Pale Ale has a lemony tang with hop-like floral and honeyed notes on the finish. Crisp and dry it makes an excellent summer drink..a fantastic accompaniment to seafood."The Wine Magazine, March 2001.
