BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

On tap at Carton. 1124/17.

Golden and clear. Clean notes of pilsner and yeast with slight citrus and slight sweetness. The agave nectar definitely adds something to the experience. Taste largely follows nose. Extremely drinkable, nice and crisp. Surprised they've not canned it.

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.
