Beer added by: atsprings on 07-06-2010

El Toro is a distinctly Southern, true-to-style American Cream Ale brewed with 100% North Carolina barley and corn grits.

Inspired by our home city of Durham, this clean, crisp, and bright beer is welcoming and unpretentious.

Sometimes all you want is a cold beer. This no-frills "beer beer" just happens to use all North Carolina-farmed grain.

growler from Bottle Revolution served up at the NCSU v. Terps tailgate 2011-2012 season, reviewed from notes...

a: served in a standard pint, this cream ale is a pale honey golden in color, supporting a lasting coating of white head

s: the nose features pale malts and a suggestion of the corn grit bill that contributes a slight sweetness to the aroma, hops mild with touches of dried grass

m: carbonated to a light-moderate level, lighter on the palate but carrying a satisfying weight all the same, creamy

t: opens up with a nice clean pale malt body, really liking the use of grits as it adds a creamy sweetness to what would otherwise be a pretty standard flavor profile, making for a fuller flavor with notes of corn and bread, hops are mild with notes of grass

o: really like this one, and they did a great job of making something for all to enjoy - proof that not everything has to knock your socks off with flavor
