Karbach Weekend Warrior

What the brewers say

“Soft caramel malt flavors are met by bright, citrusy hops bitterness and aromatics to provide balance to this pale ale. Weekend Warrior gives hopheads just what they desire while delivering sessionability that allows you to check off that ‘To Do’ list!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light bread-like malt sweetness. It’s fun to tease the hops out of this one: fruity hops with light tropical and a touch of earthy; light spicy hops; grassy, pine hops with a faint floral backing; citrus (orange mostly); some catty notes. Clean and delicate.”

Flavor: “Very balanced. Pine hops give a Christmas tree welcome. Citrus hops flavor tends toward grapefruit. The bready malt helps you relax, and the bitterness is restrained. A touch heavier body than other examples with a moderate carbonation level. Finishes with bitterness and a light hops spiciness.”

Overall: “A touch bigger body with a nice fruity hops profile. Very pleasant. A good pale ale. It’s well-done and balanced.”
