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.

I had this one on tap at 'Gas Light,' in Atlantic Highlands. Very floral, fruity, with a little lager-y graininess as well. Very pleasant to drink with a meal. In my opinion, one can really taste the agave nectar in the recipe and it's a nice addition. Would order again, especially for different food pairings.

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