COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

> Bitter, bubbly, red apple skin tannic red ale

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Costco Vista ][ $1.50- ][ Thistle ][ 7.15.14 ]
>> Pours clear amber with red core. Medium tan foam. Nose is smoked, bacon. Taste is fairly metallic, decent amount of red apple skin bitterness. Higher carbonation. Fairly dry and bitter, not cloying at all. Don’t really get any sweet potato, maybe tannic sweet potato skin. Drinkable. Small lemon finish.

>!< tannic, red apple skins

The aroma exhibits a bit of cocoa and yeast along with some fruity maltiness. This beer pours a cloudy brown color and retains a decent khaki - colored head. the flavor has that same fruiy maltiness up front along with some dry dark roasted malt flavors followed by a kick of spicu and herbal hops. The bitternrss level seems a bit high for the style, but i guea rhats qhat everybody else likes now. The flavor seems muted at first, so I hope it improves as it warms. Average body and mouthfeel. As it stands from the first pass, this beer is just merely good and doesn’t stand out in my mind in any way. Seems more like an India Brown Ale...

Gachupines (954) - USA - DEC 23, 2014
Dark amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly sweet, somewhat reminiscent of sweet potatoes. Flavor is sweet malt with very mild smokiness. Could use a little more body to fill it out. Wife: 3.6

hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 15, 2014
The was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours dark amber with a beige head an excellent lacing. Nose of roasted malts, sugar, and a hint of he sweet potato. Medium plus body. Flavor is malty with a lot of sugar, and small amount of hop showing. The finish is sweet. Kind of like a cross between Barley Wine and ESB. Nothing at all wrong with it and I keep looking for something else to appear but it never does..

This was good and gets points for creativity but since its billed as scottish ale I wasn’t overly satisfied. I was hoping, well, for a scotch ale but it didn’t come across that way to me, lacking the heartiness and some of the malt sweetness. Still, not a bad beer, drinkable and sort of interesting,

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper tinged brown with a large light tan head. Spicy malt and a touch of nutty sweetness on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet caramel and a hint of chocolate, smooth and warm with some alcohol peeking through. Warm malt and a touch of sweetness. Not sure if I would have noticed sweet potatoes blind, but looking for it I certainly get it. Slow finish with some more warm malt and a bit more sweetness. Very tasty.

jmm635 (887) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours crystal clear and copper in color with a thin white head. Aroma of strong caramel and light smoke. The sweet potatoes are there but not obvious, an appropriate level in my opinion. Nice, interesting beer.
