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.

Theydon_Bois (19789) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Very lightly hazed golden amber with a big white head, good lacing ensues. Nose is grass, pale malt, light citrus. Taste comprises pale malt, bread dough, touch of bitter orange, grass, citrus, a little hop bite. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, crisp dry finish. Decent enough lager.

yngwie (17078) - 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

Ferris (15906) - 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.

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.

Sammy (12359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
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.

deyholla (11759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2011

3.2
shrubber85 (11460) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2012
Can (courtesy of BarZigKin). Slightly sour barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with large white head. Sweet creamy barley malt and moderately bitter grass/quinine hops flavor. Nice.

4.3
onceblind (9886) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Clear golden with a foamy white laceful head. Aroma of husky grains, buttered toasted biscuit, and a sort of american grassiness. Flavor was just as charming with a biscuity pale grain deliciousness and a stern and full bodied toast and floral/grassy hop note with very low bitterness. Not spicy like a pils, nor overly malty like a helles. Just the right sipper. Maybe the best regular lager ever.
