Just the other day, we wrote that you don't often see a lager from Mountain Goat. So they go and release their second in a fortnight... It's also the second In Breed in a fortnight too (where one of the in-house brewers gets to create a beer of their own), this time a beer based on the pale German Helles style of lager but with a smoky kick that's been created by, you've guessed it, Mike. The follow up to his first beer, Mike's Third Nut, is a light copper-coloured beer that uses a touch of classic German Hallertau hops for a subtle, spicy aroma and instead lets the malt take centre stage. A combination of Munich and Vienna malts along with homegrown peated and smoked malts combine to create what the Goats tell us is "rich, full malty body, tasting of biscuits, a hint of honey and a whack of campfire smoke".
