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, we’ve 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. Here’s to being good!

Truly good beer for good people. Amber with a light head. Sweet bread and caramel on the nose. Medium bodied candied malt flavor with caramel and lightly hopped for balance. I love this with a three cheese tomato pizza.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized soapy yellow-white head that faded quickly. The aroma was sweet, sugary,musty, yeasty and lightly fruity - quite complex. The flavor was dryish, must and had a nice citrus undercurrent with a lightly tart finish. Very nice.

The look is cloudy and hazy, but also bright. Lava lamp orange with tons of carbonation. Big head is puffy dishsoap; unstable. Leaves a film and a minor lacing. Very nice dry malt smell. Biscuty with a cookie sweetness. Sweetness is like a pastry, not fruit. Quite nice. Fruit comes out as it warms. Nice slightly pale flavor. Very mild and dry. A mild tartness, hints of lemon and grape. Some honey and just a smidge of spice. Really layered and balanced. Feels creamy and thick. Slightly bubbly, but smooth overall. It’s highly drinkable, mild and dry. A nice sweet ale. Honey and red grape are the signature flavors.

Pours a deep Gold, with a decent head. The nose has heavy malts, chocolate, brown sugar and nuts. The taste is where you get the style of a Belgian Ale. Belgian yeast and caramel malts right away. A little bitter on the finish, but this is a really well made beer! Not sure why is is rated so low?...

Amber body with a thin white head. Full body. Fruity hoppy aroma and flavor. This caught my attention.
