Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: corby112 on 09-12-2013

Southwest style- not the perfect authentic taco, rather existing dishes enhanced and tailored through the use of Southwestern flavors. Adjunction to augment and layer flavors rather than to flatten is the goal. Blue Agave nectar is added to a two-row pilsner malt bill and fermented with Cal Lager yeast, establishing a core palate of flint and gunpowder with edges lightly dressed with papaya and lime leaf notes. That combination then balanced by additions of Noble hops creating a lager counterpoint for a well crafted Southwestern meal. Drink Carton Canyon because there is no art in a beer that stays out of the way of your food.

Finally getting to core lager from Carton, my home town brewer. This is one one of the best Lagers around when you get it fresh at the brewer.
A: Pours a clear yellow with a intense white head, that laces hieroglyphics.

S: Floral hop aroma on top of lemon/lime, with tortilla, cracker malt.

T: Floral, light fruit, and tortilla. Lemony hops, lime, and agave flavor. Complex for a bright lager.

Feel: Light to medium body, good carbonation, great tingly pepper-lemon, long finish.

Yes - to innovative south western food. (527 characters)

Another quality beer from Carton. Wonderful on draft. This beer should be canned and distributed for sure. (106 characters)
