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

(Bottle) Pretty good. More bitter than I expected and has a bit of a slick or oily texture. But the flavor is pretty good. I would get this again but wouldn’t go out of my way to.

Une bouteille partagée. Une robe acajou avec une mousse beige. Un nez de noisette, de caramel, de beurre noir. Une bouche confite avec des notes de caramel mou brulé et une finale houblonnée pas piquée des verres....

Robe rousse et superbe mousse qui ne veut pas mourir. Une dentelle d’enfer. Dans mon nez, caramel, terre, épices, légumes, chocolat au lait, noix et sirop d’érable. Sur mes papilles, caramel épicé, feuilles brunes, terre, tourbe, fruits. Au palais, un liquide huileux qui cherche à devenir collant. En finale, épices et fumée ou cendre caramélisée sont au rendez-vous. Le genre parfait pour madame ma femme.

kevinator (952) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Different. The bottle labels this as a scottish ale with sweet potatoes. I guess it had enough to be categorized as a vegetable beer. I think it could go either way. The aroma was slightly sweet and caramel-like. Light brown color with a decent amount of bubbles. Light palate. Not as viscous as some scottish ales. It seemed more sessionable even though the ABV is at 7%. Malty flavors with a burnt sugary sweetness. A hint of yams at the end. Not bad.

blankboy (6095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep dark amber with a large lasting frothy tan head. Interesting aroma of bready malt, sweet potatoes, chocolate and nuts. Nice malty flavour along with nuts, light hops, chocolate and sweet potatoes. Medium bodied. Really good and better then I expected.

Ok last time I had this style (Scotch Ale) I hated it. I still do. Yep. Says sweet potatoes used. Looks like a Liquid version of a baked sweet potato. Otherwise boo to this one #4 of the pack

Copper pour with off white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is nutty an sweet roast malt. Not my favorite. Not bad.

Draft at Global Brew EDW. There is a lot of good stuff going on in this one. It brings some nice bitterness with nuts, citrus, grapefruit, rich malts, and just a little sweet potato. I wish there had been more of that. This one kept bringing nice flavors.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a hazy dark brown with a nice light tan head. Grapefruit aroma. Taste is sweet roasted malt, caramel, molasses and grapefruit.

12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Brownish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, sweet malt, and roasted nuts. Taste is mostly sweet, but not cloying, thanks to light floral hops. Light caramel, brown sugar, and toffee are most prominent. Any hint of sweet potato is (unfortunately) hidden. A decent Scottish Ale but I had hoped the sweet potato flavor would be showcased more (or at all).
