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.

12 ounce can poured a golden clear color, aromas of bread, light caramel, and slight aroma of bitterness. Flavors are the same, light hoppy aftertaste, and a light spicy aftertaste.

maxwelldeux (3041) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2013
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.

Ferris (2000) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2012
Can - Sweet malt aroma thin disappearing head. Fizzy clear gold. Surprising front end bitterness, with a bit of hay and bread. Flavorful for a lager.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Orange-amber with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma kind of toast and caramel malt with grassy hops. Taste is malty and slightly bitter and grassy. Medium bodied.

dfinney23 (1418) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2011
On tap at the Mucky Duck. Pours clear orange-gold with a foamy white head. Great complexity with the flavor profile changing from sip to swallow and as the glass warms.

Karbach Sympathy for the Lager has a thick, creamy head, a clear, golden appearance, with lots of suspended little brown specks, and a good amount of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is of slightly citrus hops and some sweetness, and the taste is of hop oil, sugary white bread, and an overriding bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Karbach Sympathy for the Lager finishes dry, bitter, and fairly drinkable. This is a good beer. RJT
