2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

The Asheville area is a brewing hotspot nestled in the mountains of North Carolina. Tater Ridge was brewed by something of a craft beer super group made up of members of the Asheville Brewers Alliance. We’re fortunate to call these passionate and talented brewers our neighbors, and we hope this unique ale will be the first of many collaborations to come.

We’ve made plenty of new friends in the nearly 30-strong Asheville Brewers Alliance (ABA) since we started brewing in North Carolina. Two of whom—John Stuart of Green Man Brewery and Luke Dickinson of Wicked Weed Brewing—led this collaboration recipe and work tirelessly to bring creativity and a deep-seated love of locally made craft beer to the Appalachian Mountains.

Type: 12-oz.bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Albertsons in Alpine, Calif. Price: $25.99 for the variety Beer Camp Across America 12-pack Purchased: Oct. 17, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 19, 2014 Misc.: Collaboration with Asheville Brewers Alliance; Packaged June 4, 2014 at 2:44 p.m. Poured a reddish, caramel, auburn, mostly murky color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki tan frothy head. Could only see streams of bubbles on the very top of the glass. Uneven, slightly layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average-to-good retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.88) Smelled a surprisingly pleasant whiff of toffee, caramel, roasty malts, Rolos candy, slight chocolate and honey roasted nuts. (Smell - 4.25) Taste wasn’t nearly as good as the whiff, but unusually pleasant. Got deep roasty caramel, toffee and roasted sweet potatoes. Also light chocolate, honey roasted nuts, faint roasted butterscotch, oven roasted peanuts and some light-roasted coffee. Roasted seems to dominate this paragraph. (Taste - 3.75) Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming finish. (Feel - 3.75) Was very surprised at this beer. Didn’t have a lot of high hopes coming in and it was pretty tasty for the style. (Overall - 3.88) 3.88 87 B+

AWISLguy (1334) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2014
From mdg164, thanks Marc for thinking about me! Pours brownish tan with a tan head leaving great streaky lacing. Aroma is really non-descript. Caramel I get. Not sure what else. Light earth. Taste is of sweet caramel, some grain, some sweet fruits. Medium bodied and fairly sweet. Finishes sweet and grainy. Shrug? 12.8

Salmoniform (831) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark brown hue with fizzy tan head. Aroma is caramel, cola, soy, toffee, sulphur. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a spicy hop bitterness and sulphur metallic finish. Overall this is a so-so brew.

scooterbub (841) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - OCT 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a murky reddish-brown with a one inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of malt, caramel, and roasted malt. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. Easy to drink, but underwhelming.

llcooldave (1101) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours an appealing dark red copper color with a thin soapy head. A hint of sweet toffee aroma and some toast. Nice flavor, a hint of sweet caramel, some toffee and toasty malt. Slight metallic note in the aftertaste. Overall, really nice, I wasn’t sure about this one with the sweet potatoes. Unfortunately, no hint of sweet potatoes but this is a really nice brew. I might try hombrewing with sweet potatoes and see what I get...

Lothore (555) - California, USA - OCT 9, 2014
A- Pours a deep brownish hue with a small, light brown head that fades fairly quickly leaving sticky lacing around the glass. S- Sweet, grainy, toasty, caramel T- Deep caramel and milk chocolate notes up front that linger and lead into a sticky, deep toasty finish. M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation. D- Decent brew. Not something I would drink all the time but definitely well rounded.

_angst_ (2854) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle courtesy of GT2. Pours amberish brown with a rather thin creamy beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty and tiny smokey with sweet dark bread, caramel, cereal, moist soil, moist grass and hints of peat, compost and orange zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter and malty with caramel, dark bread, toffee, minerals, moist soil, moist grass, prunes, orange peal, ripe red apples and hints of peat and dried meat. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and slightly malty with caramel, dark bread, red apples, moist soil, moist grass, orange peal and hints of compost and peat. Solid!

Bottle, as pictured. I slacked a little on this review, had this about a week ago. Nice beer, but I didn’t get any of the taters I was expecting to be in this. Tastes like a nice amber but nothing wild.
