BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company

Style: Rauchbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Smoked malt is one of the more dubious tools in a brewer's bag because thresholds are vastly different. What to one palate is a hint of bacon or a whiff of BBQ to another is ashtray or Band-Aids. How can Carton ignore playing this game? Where can smoldering aromatics go off the beaten craft? in SWISHR we have reassembled the deconstructed aspects of Swisher Wrap. Rich dark malts brought smoky by the addition of oak smoked pale wheat, touched with sour cherries and a heavy plug of hops that smell like their cousins. Drink SWISHR and hand me down a 50-pack.

Canned 4/19/2018. It pours a mahogany color with dark cola hues when held to the light, and over a finger of creamy, long-lasting khaki-beige head and thick, soapy lacing. It's quite attractive. The nose is rather subdued but features roasted malt, tobacco smoke, cherry, and a whiff of caramel. As the glass warmed the tobacco became more apparent. This ale opens with some cherry sweetness that is quickly overwhelmed by tobacco smoke and char. There is also a subtle sweet malt and a dose of bitter hops at the finish. The tastes blend nicely. I find it more flavorful than the typical smoked beer. It features a really nice, creamy mouth feel with moderate carbonation, and it's an easy drinker at 6% ABV. Overall, I'm impressed. Cherry Swishr features a nice balance of sweetness and burnt, bitter char. Pair it with a big, juicy burger with bleu cheese.

Smells Cherry, light char, vinegary smoke hints and caramel malt.

Taste light Cherry tartness, light toasted and caramel malt, Char and smoke hints. Finish is dry with cherry and a smoke linger. Medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

taste is amazing, some char and some cherry with some tartness but full of balance. one of the best tasting beers i've ever had. could easily put away cans of this. easy to drink and full of flavor, like a smoky Gose

a really damn good beer
