Twist-off cap, pours a vivid, straw yellow with a fluffy white head. Pungent grains present in the nose, both sweet and bitter. Yeasty, grassy... Nothing special, nothing bad. Grassy and bitter to taste, fading into a macro-style sweetness, though not in a terribly overpowering way. Bitter again, with a hint of skunk at the end. Meh. Good carbonation. Not a highly drinkable beer, in my opinion. The bitterness is a bit much.

Really??? How did this one ever get brewed for production? If someone told me the goal of the brewer was to make a replica of Corona I would have believed them. Capital is one of the top brewers in the nation, which is why I was shocked by this lame beer.

Pours golden with a large white head that slowly settles to a lasting cap. Web-like lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang and a hint of fresh grass.

The taste is mild, but pleasant: grain, a touch of honey and a fruity wheat tang in the clean, crisp finish.

Very quaffable, smooth and outstandingly refreshing.

It is what it was meant to be - a refreshing pale wheat ale. While it's still basic, it has more character to it. Wheat malt is well-used, and just a subtle hint of hops, yet has a dry-ish finish. Very "sessionable".
