12 oz can. no canned on date.
A: a good bit of haze on an otherwise very copper brew. head is comprised of big bubbles. frothy. retention is reasonable. big plumes of head retention left behind.
S: a decent malt richness. caramel. candied apple? oxidation? the hop aroma has seemed to worn out a bit. wish I knew how old this thing is...
T: a definitive oxidation is the first thing that jumps out at me. a whole heck of a lot of bitterness as well. the pine and the hop resins are muddied by the bitterness. finish is right back to the bitterness.
M: a real tingly carb, maybe slightly aided by the bitterness. medium body.
D: this thing is a bit too muddied and beat up for me to find it truly enjoyable. like I stated earlier, I wish I knew how old this can was. tastes like it has been around for a bit. anyway, gotta review what is in front of me and cant help they don't date.
Serving type: can

Purchased a bottle in Houston after a 9 hour high school graduation I was forced to watch - hopefully some of these kids will make something of themselves and brew beer I can purchase.
Karbach is a new brewery that I never have heard of. This poured a very clear copper color....little head that dissipated quickly. Fruity and hoppy smell that was consistent with the taste. This was a surprising beer for me. A great combination of hoppiness with a taste of fruit....but what gets me is the background of pepper - makes this very distinct. Mild carbonation with a decent finish. Only beer I have had yet from Karbach, but nice job.
Hmmm....wonder if that graduation is over.
