Little bit different label than the rest of the Capital beers. Kinda generic looking. 'Hops with an American accent' and 'Disarmingly drinkable." printed at the top corners. Twist off.
Pours a crystal clear light golden hue, almost resembles a pilsner. Solid two finger off-white crown. Quarter inch crown stays throughout the beer, though not a whole lot of lacing occurs.
Fresh earthy hoppyness and bit of bready malt in the aroma. However it fades rather quickly and by the time I finish noting the appearance, the aroma is hard to detect.
The flavor is by no means bold. There's a bit of really light hoppyness mixed in with some basic pale malt flavors. Some lingering bitterness down the tongue but a pretty straightforward balanced beer. Would like to get more flavor from an american pale ale than I'm getting from this. Fairly light body. They weren't kidding when they claimed 'Disarmingly drinkable'. Would be a decent session or lawnmower beer.
Just not a memorable beer.
