Aroma: malt, faint to mild earthy hop, very mild and understated aroma, slight fresh bread. Appearance: medium gold, 2” fluffy head, rocky, leaves good whore stocking lace, head white to off white, lace is long lasting. Flavor: malt with a slight touch of fruit, the hops begin in the background and then emerges in the finish to take over the aftertaste – the malt and hops mingle in the aftertaste with the hops eventually winning out in the end. Flavor grows as it warms. Smooth medium to medium high carbonation, refreshing. Overall: drinkable refreshing, well balanced pale ale, less fruity than some, less fruity than a British version, more carbonation but easy to drink.

12 fl oz. can, with code on the bottom of the can reading 0234 SP. My second beer from Capital Brewery, and the first of their canned offerings that I'm trying.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a coppery orange colored body with some very decent clarity to it. Three fingers of frothy khaki head, that leaves behind some nice fluffy lacing on the glass. Looks pretty nice.

S - The smell is fairly bland and one dimensional - grainy caramel malt, and a lightly herbal / grassy hop presence. Some dusty tea leaf aroma in there also, but the caramel malt is dominant.

T - Taste follows the nose - caramel / toffee malt, bread, tea leafs, and an indistinct herbal hop presence.

M - The feel is crisp and clean. Light-bodied with good carbonation, but somewhat on the thin side for the style. Semi-dry and bready finish.

Overall, a very average pale ale offering from Capital Brewery. Light in flavor and body, but it goes down nice and easy at 5.00% abv, and the price was right at $7.99 for a six pack.

Capital Brewery U.S. Pale Ale ---3/5.

Pours deep golden with a lasting thin white head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of citrus, pine and a touch of pepper.

The taste is of citrus with a touch of pine and some lemongrass. It is balanced, though leaning towards the hoppy side of the pale ale spectrum, especially in the beginning and the finish. A kiss of honey-like, towards caramel, sweetness is in the middle. It does have a bit of a metallic tinge to it that weaves in and out. It's distracting, but not enough to pull it down (much).

Refreshingly smooth, it is very "sessionable" and leaves a clean, minty freshness in the mouth.

Glad it comes in a 12-pack of cans at a very reasonable price!
