Carolina Common, Southern Lager whatever its called its very good.Poured into a becker a slight chill hazed amber/bronze with a large fluffy crown atop that left broken lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Toasty and bready in the nose,quite yeasty as well with light fruity esters.A little sharp in the mouth but not anything to hindering going on,flavors are yeasty and toasted,some caramel sweetness thruought,a decent drying earthy finish.A full flavored steam beer wich I think is an under appreciated style,a very nice lager beer.

Pours a pale brownish amber with a half inch of head with good retention. The smell is nondescript. There's really nothing going on there. The taste is smooth caramel malt with floral, piny hops. There's just a hint of toasty, nutty malt as well. Mouthfeel is smooth, crisp, and refreshing.

This is a nice beer. A great take on the style. This is probably one of the hoppiest lagers I've ever had, and it was balanced and delicious.

@ Tobacco Road (Raleigh)

Clear, dark copper color with a big, rich-looking, creamy head on top. Spicy, leafy hop aromas balanced by toast and cracker-like malts. Leafy/earthy hops continue into the flavor, lightly oily and mild overall, and some nutty, caramel malt. Medium bodied with a moderate bitterness. A nice beverage to start out with...

4.35/5  rDev +16.9%

a: served in a tall Fullsteam logo glass, something of a pecan amber in color, with a coating of off-white carbonation that retains well

s: nose of biscuit, toast, and subtle caramel, bright in a lager kinda way but plenty aromatic, woody/earthy hop aromas, like this

m: carbonation appropriately lively, both carrying flavor and scrubbing the palate with each sip, body crisp and refreshing without being "light"

t: clean lager-y base of toasted biscuit and a brushing of caramel sweetness, earthy hop tones, woody and a touch minty in the finish, crisp with a balanced bitter, nicely flavorful

d: great drinkability, not many of this style floating around for comparison, but this is obviously well done, for my taste this beats out "the" CC

draft at Tyler's, Durham - coincidentally review #1500, whatever the hell that means, might as well be from the home state

Pours a rich, deep amber color with a substantial, creamy, medium-tan head. The aroma is faint but pleasant, with a combination of cereal grains, a light woodsy mustiness, and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is much more pronounced, with a predominant character of sweet brown bread and a little butterscotch, although there is a substantial pine and floral hop bitterness that balances and even takes over at times. The fine, light carbonation is active yet unobtrusive, but it allows the bready sweetness to linger a bit more than I would have liked.

Overall, this one is not my favorite offering from Fullsteam, but it is an accessible, easy-drinking beer that serves as a fine flagship for the brewery.

Growler shared by drabmuh at a recent tasting.

Pours a medium copper color with a nice off white head and a good deal of lacing down the side of my tulip. Nose is pretty faint, but brings forward some caramel malt as well as some slight herbal and floral hops. The taste takes it up a bit. The malt is the center of the show, but there are some faint hops making there way through, although not adding too much bitterness. Not particularly sweet. Moderate body with good carbonation. Drinkability was really nice, and I enjoyed the crispness of this one to start the tasting off.

Also of note was the growler glass itself, which was quite cool.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, amber-brown coloring with a foamy, dense, clingy, off-white head. Nose of sweet nut, roasted notes, and hints of caramel. Sweet malty forward, with caramel and toffee notes throughout. Roasty and sweet, on a smooth, light body. Sweet, roasted in the aftertaste, as well, with a smooth, slightly lingering finish. Well put together, balanced, and tasty.
