On tap at the brewery. Amber coloring with an off-white head. Tastes like a standard lager at first, but the finish is where the payoff is - definite notes of sweet potato, especially as the beer warms up a little bit. I "yam" always excited about drinking a Carver.

Can. Pours light brown with a thin white head. leaves some lacing in the glass. A fair amount of sugar on the nose. Very sweet on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not particularly compelling.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz can served in a lager glass. Oct. 2015 canning date (stamp on bottom of can).
Pours with a slightly hazy, deep amber body topped by a short but durable and creamy head. Full sheets of lacing are left on the glass with each tip.
Lightly sweet with clear evidence of adjuncts that I probably wouldn’t identify as sweet potatoes without foreknowledge. An unexpected but acceptable tartness.
Feel: medium+ soft carbonation that seems just right for this medium bodied brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. Pours golden orange, clear, medium off-white lacing. Some traditional lager aromas of grass, resin, caramel, and bread. Taste is medium sweet. Medium-light body, mildly sticky texture, ave carbonation, light bitterness and sweetness in a refreshing finish. I really enjoyed this lager and the infusion of sweet potatoes.

2.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very nice sweet smell!! Only seem to get one good whiff though, maybe cause I let it sit for a bit, normal amber appearance, taste is malty on the front end and more hoppy on the finish..but light hops....watery though, light on flavor like a malty water

A nice crisp lager with a mellow sweetness. It’s earthy to a degree and has a touch of sweet potato flavor. You know. It reveals itself a little more with each sip...like a sweet potato fry finish. It’s actually quite nice, I want to put salt on it. It’s a really solid lager base too. Excellent body, cereal flavors and carbonation.
