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.

yngwie (13224) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2013
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

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.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can:   Dusty orange, a little hazy, moderate to large foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft caramel malt nose, a little biscuit, a little mealy.   A hoppy example on the tongue, malty, mealy, bready, a little mealy, but also a touch hoppy.   Good, but needs to be sweeter to make it deviate from the hop arena.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Could use a bit more of a malty body, in addition to the sweetness.   For an Amber Lager/Vienna its a bit over-hopped.   Good, but more malt and more biscuity/caramel sweetness and you would certainly have it.   Always comparing these to Great lakes Eliot Ness, but sadly very few compare.   Thanks Bill!
