I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From bottle to a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours very light yellow with a nice thick head.

Smell: Light wheat smell with some fruitiness.

Taste: Light wheat and not much else going on here.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied and crisp.

Drinkability: If you are looking for a light wheat beer, this will be for you. However, I like more flavors in my wheat beers.

Serving type: bottle

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".
