Poured into a 14oz Sam Adams glass.

I bought this beer blind in a make-your-own-six-pack deal, with no idea of even the style. Upon opening the bottle, the pleasant aroma hit me right away - straw, a bit of metallicity, and a surprising amount of light malt. Upon pouring, I noticed that it has a wonderful golden color but is easily the most transparent beer I have ever seen - Sprite is more opaque. Still, it has a nice roughly 1" head to it, and plenty of carbonation. This is what Bud Light wishes it looked like.

The taste isn't terribly complex, but it's just the right level of strength for what it does - quite lemony, with just enough body to not be off and a just-malty-enough finish. The hop bite is more of a playful nip, and the focus is on the smooth drinkability moreso than anything remotely approaching complexity. Sadly, the mouthfeel and aftertaste are a bit of a letdown, ending up feeling and tasting starchy.

Overall, if I lived in the area this stuff comes from, this would be the beer I'd want to bring with me in a cooler to go out camping or fishing rather than to drink at home or try and pair with anything. It's like baby bear's porridge: not too much of anything, not too little, it's juuust right... But in the end it's still just porridge.

Nose is sweet and fruity when cold. Gets more yeasty with warmth. Flavor is also sweet with apple qualities. Beer almost reminds me of a hard cider. Very good. Lots of carbonation.

A-Pours a chalky white head that quickly dies. Straw golden with just the slightest cloud noticed.
S-Pale malt aroma, just a hint of hoppy spice, and an ethanol astringency.
T-lagerish-hints of malt and a little touch of hops but not much else going on
M-A little heavier than many domestic lagers
D-As with most lagers this could be pounded into oblivion.
O-This is a nice lager. As with most Capital brews it is well done. But in my opinion if you're going to have a lager-why bother spending the extra money for this one and just get one of the cheap domestics. This one isn't that much different. I doubt that many people could distinguish this from MGD.

Slight off aroma on the nose – not quite sure what it is. Pours brilliant pale gold with a ½” pale white head. The palate is a slight caramel, faint honey, a touch of tanginess. Medium light body and medium carbonation. A somewhat insipid session beer.

Ah, my first beer review from Canfest. . . my old friend Capital Brewery, ah, they should do some big business with the Buckeyes coming to Camp Randall this Saturday.

Yellow pour, a little darker than usual canned yellow beer. Not much if any aroma going on.

Taste, wow, this is really bland. Talk about "truth in advertising," the can actually says "not bad." True, the best thing you can say about this, is 'not bad' indeed. This is their BMC beer, and well, all things considered . . . ('not bad'). Somewhat smooth, as if a light cream ale. Not a lot of anything (hops, malt, yeast flavor) aside from water.

I hear its $10 a 6 pack? That levels out the otherwise awesome drinkability of a marginal beer.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer has a very slight hint of hazy to the golden body with a thin white head that soon fades away. There is a big carbonation of bubbles that pop of the bottom of the glass and glide to the surface.
S- This beer has a clean aroma with a soft note of dry corn and a faint sulfur smell in the finish. There is a faint musty quality that reminds me of roast beef but it is very light.
T- This beer has a very clean taste with a carbonic acid note in the finish. The dry corn hint comes through in the aftertaste and grows as the beer warms. The taste of raw grain hulls grows as the beer opens.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slightly flat texture and a soft fizz in the finish.
D- This beer is dry and clean with no off flavors or much character at all. It is a well build beer just a bit bland and dull to drink.

Here's another beer that I had on NYE at Towne Inn in Jefferson, WI. I had heard that this beer was pretty good so I thought I'd give it a shot.

It's a good quality beer. This is a good simple balanced beer with a medium body, good mouthfeel and taste. I could see myself drinking a few more of these in the future.

"0302" stamped on the bottom; poured from a 12oz can into my Harriet pils glass.

Clear pale golden amber with a soft milky white head. Soapy lacing, average retention.

Sweet faintly grainy aroma with a hint of grass.

Sweet grainy palate entry with hints of corn (despite this not being brewed with adjunct) and hay. Low bitterness. Relatively crisp, yet still sweet finish.

Light bodied, well carbonated, and nicely lagered.

Not bad for the style, but a bit too sweet and dull. Their motto is apt: "Not Bad."
