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.

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 (3934) - 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

StealMyCarbon (2) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012 does not count
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.

mar (4778) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Nice amber pour with a cream head. Nose is malts, caramel, sweet, faint hops, and crisp. Very smooth on the palate, bitter malts, caramel, florals, and dough.

Robbievegas (230) - Las vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Tried this beer on tap at The Flying Saucer in Houston, TX. Crisp clean lager with slight hoppy bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
Very foamy mid yellow body. Nothing interesting in aroma department. Mid mouth feel, decent drinkability despite slight acidic edge in finish. Decent malting, not sweet, some spiciness.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Trade from rougeau1 - thanks!Brownish gold, or perhaps golden brown is a better description. Toasty, bready aroma, with some vague spicy notes. Toasty, peppery flavor. Not bad, actually
