Carton Brewing This Town

What the brewers say

“In a perfect world, each town would have access to a fresh, straightforward lager. For our neighbors, we built one around a typically bready helles malt bill fermented with classic yeasts. We made it unique by focusing on the defining bitterness and pleasant citric spice of Opal hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A light sulfur aroma starts off but quickly fades. Soft and subtle bready malts, floral hops with a touch of spice.”

Flavor: “Balanced: toasty malt with a touch of caramel partnered with a pleasant floral hops character. Hops deliver both a spicy flavor and pleasant bitterness. Caramel pushes this into sweet territory mid-palate. Some lemon appears at the finish, but it’s clean all the way through.”

Overall: “Light bodied and poundable. The malt and spicy but floral hops play well together. It’s a year-round go-to.”
