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.

kevinator (1828) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015

AirForceHops (5783) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 4, 2015
12 oz can, purchased at the H.E.B, Austin, Tx in a mixed 12 pack. Color is a copper with head retention. Aroma is mild caramel, weak yeast, mild biscuit.

Body is thin but not on the watery side like pale lagers can get. It has some flavor which is an accomplishment for any lager. This is nowhere near the best in style( as I had yesterday a Hops and Grain) but this is clean and serviceable in the hot state of Texas.
