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.

VastActiv (4247) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at home, Vantaa. Enjoyed straight from the bottle. Aromas and flavours: Some grain, chocolate, hints of cocoa and roasted malts. Can’t find potato which is good.

PartyFowle (733) - - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle. Hazy deep purple, the color of the outside of a grape. Head is lovely -- one inch of pillowy light tan has great staying and sticking power. Aroma is earthy potato skin, toffee, a bit of smokiness and toasted bread loaf. Kind of a weird funk or meatiness in the background. Flavor is similar in malt character -- a touch of caramel, a little smoky malt. Sweetens markedly as it warms, revealing dark raisiny notes and a little citrusy spice. Creamy medium-light body; smooth mild carbonation. Just a bit of noticeable alcohol heat. The flavors in this one only truly reveals themselves when the beer warms to near room temp.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-brown color with a huge foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty and sweet with molasses and dark fruits. The flavor was bitter, malty and toasty with notes of cocoa, caramel and dark fruit. Long toasty finish. Medium body. Solid.

BrewMstr (166) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - MAY 23, 2015
From bottle while camping. Not sure about the sweet potatoes, difficult to determine their overall impact. Brown with tan head, mild aroma that matches the Scottish ale style. Not bad, not great, kind of a gimmick.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark brown with a finger of light kakhki head. Aroma of dark fruits and some citrus. Taste is light bitter, follows aroma. Pretty good.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso Easter tasting, thanks to LKS, 04/04/15. Rich amber with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is sweet malts, fruit rinds, caramel. Taste comprises sweet’n’sour notes, candied fruit rinds, orange peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Not much going on with this one but what there is is inoffensive.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Light haze on this amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Semi dry palate, decent fine carbonation. Smooth malts, pleasant caramel. Little spice. It’s okay but what’s it supposed to be?

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at ChrisO. Thanks to L-Dogg. It pours clear deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet, toasty, earth, sweet root veg and dried berry. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy, toast, sweet potato, honey roast carrots, roasted malt, candy sweetness and light spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty odd stuff. I’m not sure not his one.

Leighton (15331) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Picked up in the USA. Pours clear ruby with a tan cream head. The nose holds bread and dried fruits. Medium sweet flavor with more bready malts, berries, light piney hops, leaves. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with light caramel and ripe fruits. Tasty for sure, but I can’t say the sweet potato addition comes through.

The_Osprey (4206) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle share at ChrisO’s. Reddy brown, small foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet toffee. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is sweet toffee, some ash, dry resin. It’s quite nice. Simple. Apparently made with sweet potato, which didn’t come across. When told, I thought I could get some in the aroma, but I was searching for it.
