3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Amber coloring with an off-white head. Tastes like a standard lager at first, but the finish is where the payoff is - definite notes of sweet potato, especially as the beer warms up a little bit. I "yam" always excited about drinking a Carver.
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Draft. Poured a orange amber color with a puffy eggshell head and decent lacing. The aroma was organic sweet potato, nutty, slight caramel, and cereal grains. The taste was a well balanced malt, slight bitter hops, caramel, and a hint of sweet potato. Delicate mouth, low carbonation. Tasty, slightly bitter finish.

Pint can. Apricot color with a white head. Lager yeast, sweet potato/squash, grain cream soda and green apple aromas. Lightly sweet with a light green apple tartness. Lighter body with a watery feel. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light amber to gold color with a small white head. The aroma is a mild sweet scent. The taste is mild hops with some sweetness, I am assuming this is the yams used to make this brew. hershiser2 (3831) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2016
$2.95 pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours orange with an inch of soft white head. Aroma of sweet grass, sweet potato. Taste is interesting. Sweet up front, a bit like a sweetened flavored tea, but then turns a bit nutty and slightly grassy. Interesting. I almost want to say a bit on the flat side, but I think the flavors are making me think that. obguthr (6831) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Pounder: Pecan, hay, and earth nose. Hazy copper, medium yellow head. Pecan, brief sweet malt at midpalate, Light body, easy carbonation. The sweet potato comes across more as a earthy nuttiness which is not unfamiliar for the style. Great job.

From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malty and slight caramelish. Toasted, slight fruity and light herbal. Dry and caramelish finish. Cybercat (6341) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Taps clear amber with a typical buff head. Aroma features malt and fresh sweet potato notes. Flavor continues the tasty sweet potato, and ups the malt a bit while adding honey and ginger hints. Body and fizz are fair. Carve room for one. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Solid brew, not to exciting but a little differently. Nice crisp lager base, slightly sweet leaning with malty and sweet potato flavor and nose. DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2016
Can. Pours light brown with a thin white head. leaves some lacing in the glass. A fair amount of sugar on the nose. Very sweet on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not particularly compelling. Iphonephan (7482) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2016
From a can. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Earthy, toasted aromas. Flavors of vegetables and bread. Bitter finish.
