BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Like the tension and relief of a day spent flitting between laying on sand under the beating sun and bobbing on the ocean’s cool surf, summer session drinking needs leisurely contrast. With Beach we find that midpoint where Kolsch yeasts fruity character matches its lean dryness and where an amber’s roundness gets pulled taught by cracker notes. The hops’ fruity aromatics flow, and the bitterness ebbs, with a swash of orange zest to be clean and lean, bitter and bright. Drink Beach and be chill.

Good beer, very very light (4%abv), light flavor or orange, hops are very faint. Good session beer.

Carton Brewing Co. "Beach"
16 fl. oz. can, coded "[email protected] CANNED ON (??)/9/18"
$3.49 @ Roger Wilco, Pennsauken, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a cloudy golden body beneath a finger thick head of white foam. The head seems to be dropping already but it looks like it might leave some nice lacing behind, we'll see. The aroma is citrusy with orange and lemon. It's not bold but you won't miss it. The flavor follows with some cracker-like malt added in, and some grassiness in the dry, somewhat bitter finish. Orange lingers in the aftertaste for some time - I guess the added orange zest paid off! In the mouth it's light to light-medium in body and gently crisp. As a "session ale" it works although I find it slightly bitter for what it is. Looking back, that lacing never did materialize although there was some at the outset. I think they named it right, this would be a good beer for the beach.

On-tap @ Beef Trust Kitchen & Bar in Pompton Lakes, NJ.

Very hazy/cloudy, gold to light amber in color. Average white head. Strong citrus aroma, mostly orange or tangerine with some light tropical fruit in the background. Some light crackery malt in the flavor, but balance is decidedly towards the hops. Bitter and dry finish. Medium bodied, it feels heavier than the 4% ABV.

My biggest knock on the beer is that it's a little one dimensional. Usually, I get more complexity from a Carton beer, but this just screams orange citrus for the duration of the drink. I do like that the orange feels like a genuine product of the hops and not an additive to the beer.

New:
a) The appearance and aroma zing here, for a more satisfying "light" beer experience.
t) Taste follows smell with orange zest, honey, hops, flowers, and a clean clear cleansing finish.
f) Scrubbing, light, well fizzed as it should be, slightly tang, aspirin astringency that works.

Old: Simple, clean, but too light for me.

Slight colored opaque look to this beer with a slight head from tap. Strong scent of citrus on the nose of this brew. Similar citrus flavor (I called it tangerine like not knowing what exactly was in it) with a biscuit malty finish. Just under medium in feel with high carbonation. Somewhat bitter but pretty tasty I would say.
