2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at Fullsteam. Clear light orange. Medium white foam. Wispy lace. Nose is super heavy diacetyl. Taste is heavy diacetyl, tangy lemon, huge buttered roll. Butter bomb. Almost impossible to accomplish this with a lager style. Premature kegging perhaps. Needs diacetyl rest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. 5.5%. From a trade with jcnielsen. Thanks a lot Justin!
Clear copper colour with a small frothy white head.
Sweet malt, mild bitterness, mild metal and some sweet potato notes in the aroma. The flavour is dry bitterness, malt and more dryness. Very dry flavour.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the brewery in Durham. Pours a clear amber-gold color with a small white head. Aroma of rye, earthy hops, bready malts, toast, herbs, resin, citrus, and some sweet starchiness that must be the sweet potato. Flavor of rye, herbal notes, peppery spices, bread, and dust. Thin-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a peppery but watery mouthfeel. If the body weren’t so, so light, this might have more to it, and I wish those sweet starchy notes of the aroma showed up in the flavor.

Growler pours a totally clear, bright copper with a thin, white head. Nose is nice, sweet, earthy, malty, floral. Flavor is sweet, the sweet potato actually comes through, malty, light fruit. Dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, I drunk most of it. Poured a mostly clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma was lots of sweet sugary notes, sweet potato yam character. Light lemon, caramel malt, lager character. Interesting. Not bad, but perhaps just a little sweet. A touch refreshing with a lower abv that was nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The good flavor contained notes of mild citrus sweet mild spice and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 02-27-2013 at Fullsteam Brewery. This draft beer has a small smooth off-white head with a short retention, golden transparent body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is earthy, sweet and bready malt. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is a quaffable session beer with not a lot of character to it.

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...
