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.

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours clear golden with a fluffy, bright white head. Smells bready and a bit spicy. Taste is crisp and has a nice bitterness. Light-to-medium bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Karbach Sympathy for the Lager finishes crisp with a hint of lingering bitterness.

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.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land.
Pours a glassy amber sap with a nice white head. Nose is honeyand buttered grass clippings. Flavor is toasty strawberry, light honey malt, and a sweet rose finish. Slick mouthfeel. Great beer.

Allow me to be the first – quite a privilege since I just attended the “official” first tour of the brewery here in Houston. Don’t let the use of the word “pale” in the description fool you. Karbach’s fresh-from-the-tap lager version pours clean and dark golden, with a modest head. Served cold, it delivered a crisp taste without the dry bitterness of some classic lagers. This one has a great mouth feel, it’s not thin, putting it at the heavier end of the Vienna style: there are tastes (to me) not only of caramel but a hint of lemon, too. Of the three current beers from this new brewery, Sympathy turns out to be my favorite. For now.

Grassy nose with slight cleaner tinge. Pours a beautiful clear yellow. Taste has a toasty cereal note and nice hop bitterness that lingers. Mouthfeel is rich. Great burger / pizza beer.
