3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
64 oz. growler from Weaver Street, Southern Village
Ar: Aroma is straight roasted, caramelized sweet potato. Nice job by Fullsteam to bring that out.
Ap: Pours a clear copper-orange with a frothy manila head. A bit of retention, doesn’t leave much lacing.
T: Moderately sweet, caramel flavor and a mild bitterness on the finish. Not a ton of hop character, but enough on the finish to balance this out.
P: Body is a touch sticky, maybe a bit too thick to drink more than 3-4 of these.
O: Glad I tried this one.

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.

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.

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.
