Have had Carver a few times whether by growler or, in this instance, a draft at the brewpub - the beer is a deep maple amber in color, served in a tall lager style glass with a low cap of carbonation. Opens with aromatic biscuity malts, toasty, with lots of caramelization and an earthy sweet potato sugar. Earthy, grassy hops. Moderate in body and carbonation. Flavors of toasted biscuity malts and caramel, the sweet potatoes come through as an earthy sweetness but not exactly distinct. Lots of rich, heavy flavor. Earthy hops with a hint of toast and light bitter to the finish. A nice lager, slightly sweet for my taste, but enjoyably full flavored and I think the use of sweet potatoes is both well done and a benefit to the beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in a shaker pint at The Flying Saucer-Charlotte

Pale honey/amber color. No head, but my glasss was filled to the brim. A lace is on top of the beer throughout consuption, but just a ring wround the glass that doesn't stick to the walls of the glass.

Soft, bready malt and as well as light sweet potato on the nose

Nice medium body. The sweet potato is noticable, but i don't find it sweet like I've read in several reviews. Adds a richness, but I'm sure the sweet potato isn't really leaving that much residual sugar. It just tastes of rich, sweet potato-y.

Solid finish. I would by this if it s available in sixers in my area.

Serving type: on-tap
