BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Fullsteam Brewery
North Carolina, United States
fullsteam.ag

Style: Cream Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

t - Tastes of wheat, bready malts, and light fruit.

Poured from the tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear pale yellow color with zero head. The aroma is faint grain and corn. The taste is very weak flavored corn meal. An average beer.
