COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp, refreshing lager brewed with two hundred pounds of North Carolina sweet potatoes per batch...and zero ounces of pie spice. Savory and earth. Deliciously smooth. Carver celebrates the subtle flavor of North Carolina’s most prized crop.
Enjoy our tribute to a true Southern visionary, Dr. George Washington Carver. While he may be better known for his work with peanuts, Dr. Carver was also passionate about the sweet potato.
Availability: year-round, 22oz bombers at our tavern and select markets, including the Durham Farmer’s Market. 5.5% ABV.

rosenbergh (9921) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2014
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.

GT (9918) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (9401) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Solid brew, not to exciting but a little differently. Nice crisp lager base, slightly sweet leaning with malty and sweet potato flavor and nose.

phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2010
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.
