3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Allow me to be the first – quite a privilege since I just attended the “official” first tour of the brewery here in Houston. Don’t let the use of the word “pale” in the description fool you. Karbach’s fresh-from-the-tap lager version pours clean and dark golden, with a modest head. Served cold, it delivered a crisp taste without the dry bitterness of some classic lagers. This one has a great mouth feel, it’s not thin, putting it at the heavier end of the Vienna style: there are tastes (to me) not only of caramel but a hint of lemon, too. Of the three current beers from this new brewery, Sympathy turns out to be my favorite. For now.

Pours out a decent golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet cereal grains, honey, light caramel, and very mild bitterness. Taste is clean, lots of cereal grains, sweet bready malts, light grassy hops, lingering sweetness. Eh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can via trade. Poured a pretty good looking clear medium density bright gold with a creamy bright white head. Aroma grains, wet bread, corn and veggies. Medium bodied with scratchy carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of dry bread, corn husk, some old shells. Okay for a bland style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma has notes of cured sausages, some caramel hints, and a piney hoppyness. It’s lightly salty on the palate, with pine cones, some caramel and a decent bitterness. Medium to full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Some bitterness in the end too. Overall, a quite pleasant one, easy drinkable too. 131004
