3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 Tasted as Sweet Potato Lager, feel like that last word is pretty important in the description. Pours a clean translucent tinted yellow with a one finger frothy white head. Nose is mildly earthy with a hint of sweetness (sweet taters), bit o’ hay, crisp/sharp hop character, bit bready. Flavor shows a crisp hop bite, clean flavor, mild sweetness with a bit of an earthy character. Overall pretty nice and drinkable, just hope that most everyone understands what sweet potatoes do to a beer and don’t think they’re getting something like a yam casseerole...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served at Carver Sweet Potato Lager at the Tylers release last wednesday. This was one of my favorites of the night, surprisingly. Didn’t actually get much sweet potato character--maybe a little soil and earth--but I thought this was a really tasty lager. Nice floral and citrus notes with a very clean finish. A little bit of sweetness, but overall pretty dry for the style. I think its more of a pale lager, but I could drink this on the reg.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught from the brewer at Bruisin’ Ales Teaser Tasting. Pours a clean orange into the glass, with a rententive soapy head. The nose is fresh and malty. Sweet malty flavor, allowing a hint of sweet potato through without being cloying. The finish is a bit dry, with a spicy hop close. Goes down well, with an active mouthfeel and medium body. Decent brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tan/brown pour with small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of sweet potatoes and some pie spices. Flavor is straight up sweet potatoes and malts, light amount of hops in the aftertaste. Tastes just as its named, and thats a good thing
