COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We believe in Karma. We suspect most of you do, too. It truly is a global concept. Very simply put, "you get what you give." Inspired by this principle and the wonderful farmhouse and pale ales of Belgium, weíve created Karma Ale, a decidedly fruity and estery ale, intricate in body and nose, all driven by a unique Belgian yeast strain. Remember, good things DO happen to good people. Hereís to being good!

Poured from a bottle, poured an amber golden color, minimal tan head, slight fruit, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, an okay beer.

arnold931 (882) - Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle. Not much here. Pours clear gold rust with very little head. Not much in the nose. Some grape. Incredibly watery taste and mouthfeel. There's just not much here.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - SEP 23, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass. Almost clear rustic amber color with a small off white head. Fruity nose (apricot), with some floral hops, bready malt and light caramel. Sweetish malt, biscuit notes, light fruitiness, lo bitterness and faint marmalade. Light-medium body, quite balanced, easy to drink but a bit boring. OK.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, fruit and floral. Taste is sweet and some citrus.

fitwitchik (418) - Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass glass golden with a white head that dissipated really quick. Aroma is subtle fruit- pears faint scent of Belgium yeast. Flavor is sweet pears some bitterness definite slight funk. Reminds of a sweet/sour candy. Quite refreshing. Not overly carbonated medium body to the palate. Smooth. Trying to figure out why this brew has gotten a bad rap here in ratings. Itís definitely not an imported Belgium pale but its holds it weight well. Glad I snagged the last 6 pack at my usual ale takeout store. Will definitely look forward to this brew next year.

fiercepanda (612) - Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2014
A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is toasted grain and potato chips or french fries, kind of gross. The flavor is toasted grain, light fruit and spice. Maybe an old bottle?

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Glowing orange appearance. Uneven splotches of lacing not well-retained. HUGE yeast aroma. Slight lemon zest. Maybe even a bit of pepper the more it sits. Then we get to the taste: surprisingly mellow and somewhat weak flavor. Some esters. Yeast. Bread malt. Too much carb on the palate. Not very memorable. Iím criticizing a bit here; donít get me wrong, itís not awful - very drinkable - but itís just not that great. For Belgian Ale rooks.

Fatehunter (1687) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours a thin head on a clear darker straw colored body. The aroma is like cotton candy with a little fruit salad. The flavor is mild overall, a little lemon bitterness and some mild sweetness. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A more interesting pale ale but still on the mild side overall.

jcnielsen (2681) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orangish color with white head. Fruity, yeasty, estery, spicy aromas. Yeasty, plum, spicy, apricot flavors. This was one of my favorite beers when I was first getting into craft beer, 8 years ago. It has been at least 4 years since I last tried. It has a stronger plum, apricot, fruity flavor than I remembered. Still enjoyable, but not as good as I remembered in 2006.
