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.

ben4321 (6005) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2013
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, Ive 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.

dmac (5827) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2014
12oz can via trade. Poured a pretty good looking clear medium density bright gold with a creamy bright white head. Aroma grains, wet bread, corn and veggies. Medium bodied with scratchy carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of dry bread, corn husk, some old shells. Okay for a bland style.
