Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Deep chestnut brown in color. Forms a smallish light yellow-tan colored head. What does form has good retention. Moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and roasted sweet potatoes. Taste is more of the same...lots of malts with sweet caramel notes and something resembling heavily cooked sweet potatoes and a light touch of spice. It works with the malts. Medium bodied. Medium carb. A little thin for the style.
Overall, not bad, especially considering Scottish Ales are far from my favorite style. Feel this one utilizes the sweet potato much better than Tired Hands attempt at marrying it with a Marzen.

11/26...BCAA 9/12...pours deep reddish brown, light through in the bottom blocked at the top. Laces along the sides. Amber ale smell - caramels, toffee, breads and a little earthy. Taste is very peat-y with a scotch whisky blend. The sweet potato flavor is modestly apparent. Backed by a nice hop bite. Interesting.

Pours dark brown with a off white head of very tiny bubbles.
Smell is okay, slightly sweet.
This one tastes less smoky than a lot of Scottish ales. It must be the yams softening up the flavor.
Overall another very drinkable beer out of the 2014 beer camp.
