COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the unique American craft beer tradition of Pumpkin Beers except with sweet potato. Look for this beer on a nitrogen pour in our taproom and on draft at local bars and restaurants.

c/o mnmike. Thanks again! Aroma - it could be that the aromas are very similar between sweet potato and pumpkin, or it could be the spices used in pumpkin beers and this beer are the same, but Iím picking up the same nose as I would in pumpkin beers Iíve sampled. Appearance - body color is an rusty/orange color; the liquid is hazy, with good nucleation; the head is beige and about 1 1/2" high and quickly rings out Taste - is very distinct, the beer has a small spice profile associated with pumpkin beers. Itís a subtly sweet and somewhat elusive, itís malts donít hang around long. Itís pumpkin-like, which I assume is sweet potato. Palate - body is near medium; the texture is between medium and thick; carbonation is nearly lively; the finish has a unique effervescent and holiday like spice quality about it.

Basted a turkey with this.. Best as a cooking beer, but it drinks thin with some astringency.

Can courteay of TheHoff43: Mild allspice aroma. Cloudy ochre, medium yellow head. Very little flavor, slight astringency. Malty tartness toward the back end of the palate. Definitely unremarkable when sampled cold or quaffed. Disappointing even for the style.

Murky off brown pour with a quickly dissipating tan head. Smells like sweet potato pie very sweet with a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Thin palate. Flavor is mellow like a sweet potato pie limited spices a vegetive quality. OK but Iíll skip it in the future.

6 pack of cans from Falls Liquor, Minneapolis, MN. Pours a cloudy, dark apple juice color, almost grapefruit. Thin, carbonated mouthfeel. Slight taste of pumpkin pie. Overall, a very drinkable beer, but slightly watery; could use more hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange color with a good head.

The aroma is malty sweet with some sweet potato & spice... weird but not out of line weird.

The flavor is plenty sweet potato forward, síeven got a touch of tartness & some cinnamon.

Pretty enjoyable bro.

Can from Adam. Thanks for this extra! Pours a......screw it, I drank it from the can at my kidís third birthday party. Aroma is a faint pumpkin spice with some clove. Taste is a average to slightly above average fall seasonal. Easy to drink and I liked the lack of sweetness. I could drink a couple of these at a Fall picnic.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Jeff! Dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, nice cinnamon, nutmeg, earthy notes into a slight pumpkin note, slight grass and spice. Taste brought nice sweet caramel, toffee, nice earthy notes into a spice middle, some pumpkin hints of cinnamon, ginger and clove, hints of grain, finishing fairly sweet. Pretty nice.

12 ounce can thanks to Ryan. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A somewhat odd spicy and seemingly sour nose. Similar flavor: big sweet potato, spices, a light acidic lemon, some mellow toffee. Pretty nice. Very definable as a sweet potato.
