Karma, from Avery, poured out of a 12 ounce bottle into a chalice.

The appearance is a hazy orange tan, what head it had dissipated fairly quickly.

The aroma is weak, somewhat detergent like, bit of a disappointment.

I'll be frank, I was expecting something a little more flavorful, this strikes me more as a pale ale with a bit of Belgian yeast thrown in at the end. Mouthfeel is also not great, fairly highly carbonated. On the other hand it is somewhat light and refreshing, I'll have to give a retest when it is not snowing outside.

The Karma from Avery is not one of my favorite. The beer comes across more like an apple wine or something. The color is amber with thin white head that is not lacing. The scent is Belgium twangy....fermented fruit. The taste has the Belgian sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is ok....I would not go out of my way to drink it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some fruit and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out mildly sweet with flavors of caramel and fruit. Then some breadiness comes in Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. The hops presence is mild and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely better beers in the style.

A - pours up about the same color as an amber ale, clear with a very small head which quickly diminishes and not much lacing to speak of.

S - fairly one dimensional smell. Mostly breadiness with a small amount of pine.

T - Sweet apples at first sip with a kind of dry yeasty finish. A metallic note is detectable.

M - kind of average and unimpressive.

O - not real impressive, certainly not horrible, but as mediocre as you will find.
