Pours a light straw yellow color with a white head. Minimal aroma of bread and hay. Taste seemed watered down with mere hint of hay, bread, and lemon. Kind of disappointed.

Draft sample at Brick Spirits. Pours a hazy light straw color with a large frothy white head. Aroma of lemons, grass, wheat, and earthy hops. Taste is also earthy, with notes of fresh sour citrus fruit, lemon zest, wheat, and grass.

On tap at Barcade. This beer has so much going for it on paper that I literally accused the bartender of pouring me the wrong beer. But alas. Aroma is slight golden wheat and stale bread. Pours golden with a nice small head. Taste is not much of anything. Pilsner yeast, stale bread and wheat. Overall, I’ve had tastier lagers. Missed potential from Carton. Sorry, Augie.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is barely anything. Maybe a hint of grains or something. Taste is really not that much either. Where is the salt? Where are the clams? Where is the lemongrass? Basically, I got very little of any of this; instead, I got a super light golden ale that if my tastebuds squinted could make out some salt or gose goodness. Disappointed. I normally like Carton too. And, I normally like goses as well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Extremely light in aroma, taste and appearance. The aroma had a hint of the lemon grass and a bit of wheat. Same for the flavor. Very easy going down, like a good lawn mower beer.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Light hazy pour. Does indeed taste like clams and lemongrass. Not a perfect combo but still oddly works. Feels a bit like marshy New Jersey clams but that’s neither here nor there. Egg yolks. Clean surf flavors. Shortbread. Certainly unusual. Interesting enough to merit a try.

Draft. Light golden pour with white frothy head. Very light aroma. Flavor is light, some lemongrass but don’t get much salt or "clams." But drinkable .

Keg at Torst - Brooklyn, NYC. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white cream head. Fairly wimpy aroma, some light doughy pale malts, straw. Light sweet flavor, some biscuity pale malts, hints of lemon peel. Light bodie with fine, tingly carbonation. Simple finish, pretty clean, further crispy, biscuity pale malts, minimal bitterness. Basic but very drinkable.

Draft at Torst. Pours yellow with white head. Nose and taste of sea salt, sour wheat, yeast, soft wheat, lemon, see breeze and light banana. Touch of brine. Lighter body. Refreshing.
