Hmmm ... another soap from Mickey Lee Soap Works and again, like 'The Kraken' which I tried earlier in the week, not a straight ride. While 'The Kraken' was overly foamy from the off requiring me to break off and start again, 'Drunken Goat' had me returning to the soap three times to get something I might call a lather.

With Guinness and oatmeal, 'Drunken Goat' is on paper right up my street. I love the idea of it and while enjoying a bottle of Foreign Extra, a shave with a soap that includes Guinness should have been a good thing.

Sadly, it was not. After three trips to the soap, my earlier poor test lathers were confirmed. Thin, very thin, sad looking lather. I got away with a shave, more to do with the smoothness of the blade I think and my usual post-shave lather (something I do for the good skin benefits) just didn't happen - the lather had all but gone from the brush.

I don't think I'll pursue any further purchases from this manufacturer.

Not a bad scent though, and there was something in there that put me in mind of cough sweets. There's a deep balsamic to it and it was something that I wanted to pick up with my post-shave scents. Haramain's Red African felt like it would fit the bill, a sweet, musky amber.
