COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with a blend of pale malts and generous amounts of German noble hops, Sympathy for the Lager captures the best of both worlds: the clean, refreshing character of a Lager and the huge taste that craft beer drinkers deserve.

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Very lightly hazed golden amber with a big white head, good lacing ensues. Nose is grass, pale malt, light citrus. Taste comprises pale malt, bread dough, touch of bitter orange, grass, citrus, a little hop bite. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, crisp dry finish. Decent enough lager.

Karbach Sympathy for the Lager has a thick, creamy head, a clear, golden appearance, with lots of suspended little brown specks, and a good amount of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is of slightly citrus hops and some sweetness, and the taste is of hop oil, sugary white bread, and an overriding bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Karbach Sympathy for the Lager finishes dry, bitter, and fairly drinkable. This is a good beer. RJT

Poured from a can, with no head or lace. Nice yellow color to it with a somewhat happy smell to it. It is not as crisp as I like my lagers to be. And it has a minor hop after taste.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2013
Draught. Pours a light amber color with a moderate white head. Nose and taste are much like a lager - a little skunky and boring. Nothing interesting about this beer to me.

Pours a clean soft blonde with a wispy white head. Bready nose with some hay and fresh cut grass. Light medium body with a grassy finish.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Clear golden with a foamy white laceful head. Aroma of husky grains, buttered toasted biscuit, and a sort of american grassiness. Flavor was just as charming with a biscuity pale grain deliciousness and a stern and full bodied toast and floral/grassy hop note with very low bitterness. Not spicy like a pils, nor overly malty like a helles. Just the right sipper. Maybe the best regular lager ever.

Had a pint at the tour. Its supposed to be the non craft brew guys beer. I guess its sort of lighter than a typical craft brew, but it wasnt the greatest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours clear dark gold with slight white head. Nice hops for a lager with a very slightly-bitter finish. Bready with slight spice. Better-than-average lager for sure.
