The Laurel-based brewery's amber ale contains a surprising list of ingredients in addition to carrots: raisins, lactose (huh?), spices, and vanilla beans. Consider yourself warned: It really, really, really does taste like carrots—or, as one judge put it, "carrot cake in a can." If that sounds all right, you should enjoy this beer. Our panel quite liked the creamy texture, with one panelist describing the beer as "a little grassy, like carrot-based cold-pressed juice, but you know, alcoholic." Another thought this sounded like beer combined with V-8 but found it to be "unexpectedly pleasant." Added another: "I'd drink plenty of this stuff." Here's another warning, however: A couple of the beer's detractors likened the flavor not to carrots, but to Robitussin.
