3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From growler. Clear gold brown, full white head diminishes quickly & no lacing (glass not beer-clean). Strong aroma of earthy hops, soil, light malt, slight orange citrus. Flavor is soft light malt that melds into a crisp, lightly sour hop bite, earthy and vegetative. Much fuller flavor than most lagers. Fairly clean finish, leaves slight bitter linger. Light body, moderate carbonation, and crisp flavor make it thirst quenching and sessionable.

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.

3.3 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.

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.

Nice light sweet ale. Amber colored. Aroma and taste only give slight sweet potato presence, but sweetness is there. Other than that plenty drinkable, but nothing too special.

Great idea. Aroma was of startch and sugar. Pour was a dark amber with a froathy off white head. Taste was of a sweet stout with a little bit of chewyness in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Nose is actually a little sweet, yet still light. Taste is much the same with light easy feel. Not bad, but not great.

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.

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.

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.

You definitely get the sweet potato but it is still just a lager. Pours a great color and is very drinkable, would be a great gateway into craft beers for those who are just starting out.
