BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States | website

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.

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.
