Southwest Style - not the perfect taco, rather existing dishes enhanced and tailored through the use of the Southwestern flavors. Adjunction to augment and layer flavors rather than to flatten is the goal. Blue Agave nectar is added to a two-row pilsner malt bill and fermented with Cal lager yeast, establishing a core palate of flint and gunpowder with edges lightly dressed with papaya and lime leaf notes. That combination then balanced by additions of Noble Hops, creating a lager counterpoint for a well executed modern Southwest meal. Drink Carton Canyon becuase there is no art in beer that stays out of the way of your food.

On tap at Blend Bar and Bistro. Hazy honey gold color. Small creamy beige head. Great lacing. Soapy, earthy agave aroma. Interesting bittersweet hoppy notes, remiscent of Crayola crayons. Finishes spicy with notes of pepper and Thai Basil. I didn't pickup the flint or gunpowder notes suggested in the brewery description, though there are certainly notes of earthy, leafy, deciduous characteristics. Drink Canyon for the uncertainty that life brings when you are foraging around in The Southwest, not for the wall that will be built by our illustrious POTUS.

At the source: misty light gold with a white head. Aroma is grassy, lemony and bready. Taste is sweet, lightly bitter and a tad spicy. Lingering lager aftertaste. Pretty solid.

Draft at Rattle n Hum West with Uncle Jim. Pours a clear golden body with light soapy white lacing. Nose is sweet malt, alcohol and vague fruits. Mouthfeel is thin bodied and slick with notes of alcohol and fruity spices.

Drank on tap at Carton Brewing Company. This lager left me wanting something more either more flavor or less flavor, kind of hings in the mediocre non-decisive middle ground of where this beer should beer.

Pours a hazy, dark golden yellow color with a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Streaks and spots of lace left behind. Slightly floral, crisp hop aroma with hints of grass, straw, light fruit and and a pale malt backbone. Subtle grassy pine needle with some apple, pear, biscuit an pale malt. Fuller bodied than expected with an aggressive crisp hop bite up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Really nice hop character for the style with dank, dry bitterness, faint citrus/tropical fruit, grass, straw, apple, bread and biscuit. Decent enough malt presence but doesn’t interfere with the hops. I’m not really picking up the adjuncts or agave. Well balanced and refreshing with a nice hop profile.

Draft. Clear gold. Frothy head with huge lacing. Aroma is all lime zest. The taste is a little tropical with a lot of lemon and lime. Creamy feel. I love this and hate it at the same time. Today it was great but, I could see myself disliking it at another time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Crossroads. Poured a clear light golden yellow with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, lemon and lime zest, and grain. Taste was grainy, with a pinch of lemon and lime, followed by bitter earthy pine, and cloying sweet fruit. Got a little too sweet for me towards the end.

Taste: Mildly sweet caramel, slightly earthy, finish hints at lemon.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderate/high carbonation.

ben4321 (6956) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Location: Draft at the Brewery, 7/19/14

Aroma: Sweet and malty aroma, grains, some lemon/citrus, and underlying hop notes as well
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a small head and light lacing
Flavor: The flavor is similar, sweet malts/grains balanced nicely by citrus and hop bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light and easy drinking, clean on the mouth, with a dryish finish
Overall Impression: I enjoyed this beer. Crisp, clean, and easy drinking. No major flaws for me. This isn’t anything crazy, but it is something I could see hitting the spot in the right situation. (I’d like to apologize for using the word "situation" in a review of a Jersey Shore brewed beer.)
