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.

Location: 12 oz can at Prego, 8/27/13, Rating #3150

Aroma: The nose is clean and malty, some bread/toast, a little caramel, and some hops
Appearance: It pours a deep golden-amber color, some nice, frothy head, and decent lacework
Flavor: The flavor is clean and malty, not too sweet, well balanced, with a good lager flavor
Palate: It has a clean, crisp mouthfeel, a light-medium body, smooth and very easy drinking
Overall Impression: This is a really well-made sessionable lager. I was impressed by this one. In general, I’ve been impressed by Karbach. Sometimes I think if a brewery can make a good Lager that shows more than making a really good Imperial Stout. This is a heck of a Lager.

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.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a faint caramel malt. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter malt and light crisp finish. A decent vienna from Karbach.

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.
