Very hazy amber color with a medium white head. Decent lacing. Smell is weak with only notes of pale malt and wheat. Maybe a touch of bread. Taste is also a touch weak but most beers in this style can't really be too flavorful. A touch of wheat and some citrus lemon qualities to clean the palate in the finish. There's no off flavors or flaws in here which is most important when drinking a summer quencher like an American Wheat. Capital always shines in mouthfeel and drinkability and this is no different. Smooth, long flavors. Quite refreshing. Good for the summertime as a quencher but the style just doesn't do it for me as a whole.

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".
