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 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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at various locations in Durham, NC. Recent batches have been an improvement from the already enjoyable beer, which at its base is a really solid lager (why are they now calling it an "amber"?), well balanced with a slight edge going to the malts (as is only fitting given the treatment here).

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.

3.4 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...
