COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
El Toro is a true-to-style American Cream Ale, brewed with 100% North Carolina barley and corn. Inspired by our home city of Durham, this straw-colored beer is welcoming and unpretentious. A perfect beverage when you “just want a beer.”

Easy drink, but fairly unremarkable. Pours golden with very little head. Not a lot of taste to it at all.

Draft. Hazy yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of wet hay. Taste is watery sweet straw.

DiarmaidBHK (3650) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at Brewpub. It’s odd that they’d want to back a better version of Genny cream. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. Slightly gravelly taste on the tongue. Eh!

nimbleprop (5477) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Growler, pours a totally clear honey yellow with zero head. Aroma of wet malts, a little chewable vitamin, bread. Flavor is lightly sweet, a little apple, a little honey. Watery finish.

Had this beer on tap at the brewery. I could not drink it at all. It is loaded with DMS and seriously flawed.
