From growler. Clear gold brown, full white head diminishes quickly & no lacing (glass not beer-clean). Strong aroma of earthy hops, soil, light malt, slight orange citrus. Flavor is soft light malt that melds into a crisp, lightly sour hop bite, earthy and vegetative. Much fuller flavor than most lagers. Fairly clean finish, leaves slight bitter linger. Light body, moderate carbonation, and crisp flavor make it thirst quenching and sessionable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
$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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Solid brew, not to exciting but a little differently. Nice crisp lager base, slightly sweet leaning with malty and sweet potato flavor and nose.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz can served in a lager glass. Oct. 2015 canning date (stamp on bottom of can).
Pours with a slightly hazy, deep amber body topped by a short but durable and creamy head. Full sheets of lacing are left on the glass with each tip.
Lightly sweet with clear evidence of adjuncts that I probably wouldn’t identify as sweet potatoes without foreknowledge. An unexpected but acceptable tartness.
Feel: medium+ soft carbonation that seems just right for this medium bodied brew.
