Smell has a slight citrus tinge to it. Taste has a pale lemon flavor to it, hops and malt blend weak in the background. If you're in the mood for a light tasting beer, this is pretty good. It's straightforward, but it tastes good. Despite the fairly light and smooth taste, it does not give me the impression of being watery. There's nothing too remarkable about it, but pretty drinkable.

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.

3.63/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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".
