Karben 4 had their soft opening Friday night. We rolled up around 7 and the place (the former Ale Asylum) was packed. I'm wondering what others thought of the beer. I had the Block Party, which is an amber ale. It was true to style, no obvious defects, but it just seemed....ordinary. My companions tried their other two offerings, Night Call, a porter, and a rye APA style. Their verdict was the same....the beers were OK.
Nothing wrong with OK, but nothing to get excited about either. It's their first batch, so I plan to wait a couple of months and check back in. I hope they do well.
