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.

This is a good beer for when you are parched and thirsty. A little cream of wheat like flavor and a hint of sweetness throughout. Lower carbonation and ABV makes this a quick and easy drinker when a person needs to rehydrate.

To me this has to be the first beer I have or it just gets overwhelmed by whatever I drank prior to it. It also wears thin on my buds after two or three. But for two or three when thristy this is a good option and a solid version of an american wheat.

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".
