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.

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

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.

mmmbeer (1328) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 oz. can served in shaker- poured a transparent orange/yellow color, lively medium carbonation, just solitude white whisps upon the surface for a head, next to nothing in lacing. Aroma of lemon, malt, and light grains. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt does have some mass to it on the tongue, middle holds up well, finish has a touch of sweetness and a small hop feel. Nice.

ARH (831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2015
12 oz can poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mild bread and muffin dough, with some lemon, coriander, and grass. It pours a lightly, hazy straw color with a white, fuzzy head that leaves a moderate amount of lace and has an ok retention. The taste is a medium sweet with a light bitter. The oily and slick beer has a light and creamy fuzz for carbonation and a light body. Flavors of stone fruit and minerals are first noted with follow up notes of baked bread. The finish is crisp with a citrus zest and light clove honey smoothness. The aftertaste is sweet lemon that mellows towards bread and clove honey with a mild astringentcy. The moderate length tails off and leaves a clean resin feel.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear lighter gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, fruit, and honey. Taste is sweet malt, grain, fruit, and honey. Not to imply that it is too sweet. Well made lager. Nice session beer.

dlihcsnatas (458) - Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Golden brew with a pretty decent head that holds on for a good while. Aroma is typical lager, grainy. Taste is a tad sweet and there is a slight hop taste but other than that this is a typical lager. Decent but there are better ones and some of them are much cheaper to get.
