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.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a hazy, dark golden yellow color with a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.   Streaks and spots of lace left behind.

Slightly floral, crisp hop aroma with hints of grass, straw, light fruit and and a pale malt backbone.  Subtle grassy pine needle with some apple, pear, biscuit an pale malt.

Fuller bodied than expected with an aggressive crisp hop bite up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish.  Really nice hop character for the style with dank, dry bitterness, faint citrus/tropical fruit, grass, straw, apple, bread and biscuit.  Decent enough malt presence but doesn't interfere with the hops.  I'm not really picking up the adjuncts or agave.  Well balanced and refreshing with a nice hop profile.

From 11/26/14 notes. On tap at the brewery in Atlantic Highlands, NJ.

Pours a clear pale yellow color with one inch of bright head and low carbonation evident. Wheat, grains, sweet bread, light floral notes, and fruits in the taste. Light body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall very easy to drink and something a lot of BMC drinkers would love in my opinion. A better AAL than most; not the most flavorful beer in the world but worth checking out.
